The Hope Conspiracy sign w/ Deathwish Inc.

Official press release (Deathwish Inc.): Deathwish Inc. is proud to welcome The Hope Conspiracy to our affiliated family. Hope Conspiracy have been a brute force in the aggressive music community since their inception. Through years of relentless touring and now classic releases on the Equal Vision ("Cold Blue" 2000, "Endnote" 2002) and Bridge Nine ("File 03" 2001) labels, Hope Con's impact and influence is undeniable. Boasting a musical intensity and lyrical honesty that screams louder than nearly all of their musical contemporaries combined. Hope Conspiracy's "Death Knows Your Name" will be released by Deathwish later in 2006. "Death Knows Your Name" was recorded and engineered by Kurt Ballou (Converge, Modern Life Is War) at Godcity Studios. "Death Knows Your Name" marks the first recorded appearance of Tim Cossar (American Nightmare, Bars) with Hope Con, as well as the return of guitarist Neeraj Kane (The Suicide File) to the song writing fold. "Death Knows Your Name" is a stark and mesmerizing chapter in the Hope Con legacy. From the haunting first notes of "They Know Not", to the earth shaking "Stolen Days", the unforgiving heaviness and rage of the album is awe inspiring. The songs lunge and writhe with immeasurable emotion and inner turmoil like all great art does. Serving as a true amalgamation of their classic piss and vinegar approach and a new found epic maturity. As a precursor Hope Con will release a limited EP later this Spring on Deathwish. This release feature an exclusive song not featured on the upcoming "Death Knows Your Name" album. A fitting re-introduction to those who have anxiously awaited the bands triumphant return to the community that they've helped shape and influence for over half a decade.

and they put out that split 7" w/suicide file on deathwish, so they were affiliated with them, but their last two albums were equalvision (and file 03 bridge9)

freedomisrelative 2/11/2006 4:37:02 PM

PIPE DOWN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

aimforthehead 2/11/2006 5:20:47 PM

verdrinken 2/11/2006 5:22:26 PM

watchyoudie 2/11/2006 5:31:57 PM

I think you need to shut up you stupid bitch^. This post makes me moist in the pants. Let me guess what cryptic slaughter sounds like... really slow sludgy parts into blastbeats, am I right?

scenepoints 2/11/2006 5:48:07 PM

you people fcking embarass me. there are good metal bands, there are a few good hardcore bands. this is one of them. shut the fck up and deal. or complain about moshcore, because that shit is for gays

fuckingfight 2/11/2006 8:21:49 PM

this is some good fcking news

aimforthehead 2/12/2006 12:53:56 AM

VERDRINKEN....maybe after you put some clearasil on and take a shower, you can listen to good music. Metal died in 1986...fckin deal with it

stolenbirds 2/12/2006 12:59:19 AM

oversimplified blanket statements. this band is tough as nails and has heart. great stuff. cannot wait to hear new material.

RalphWiggum 2/12/2006 12:52:34 PM

great news

onemanbarfight 2/12/2006 4:15:01 PM

THC has got guts, and I love it. But unlike you eliteist brokeback bitches, I can say I like Battlemaster too. Metal may have died in the 80's but people still care about that Jesus guy and he died like 1950 years before metal.

karatexkid 2/12/2006 6:46:24 PM

best news of the year

aimforthehead 2/12/2006 7:04:09 PM

Bars appreciation.

strongislandsfinest 2/12/2006 10:34:06 PM

^the bars are dope. best news of the year, but there is no way that this album will be released on time

dillongiedt 2/12/2006 11:31:49 PM

if its already recorded then it shouldn't take too long.
