Recon set to release new EP

Thursday, February 23, 2012 8:09 AM PT


Anybody remember New York hardcore/metal outfit Recon? The group signed with Rise Records in 2007, put out an album, did some touring, and then essentially disappeared. Their vanishing act was mostly due to the fact that guitarist Mike Mulholland had joined Emmure and was obviously busy.

Well, the Mulholland and company recently sat down with Alternative Press and explained that they never really broke up, and in fact have been writing material for a new seven-song EP titled Hell, which they will self-release on March 6th. Notably, the group now includes Most Precious Blood frontman Rob Fusco on vocals.

Listen to a track from the EP below in addition to a video interview in which the band explains how everything came together for the EP.

That ass-douche being "Skype'ed" in should really stick to working the deli counter and stay away from the whack-ass interviews.

Yo Mike, how is this video promoting our band, gayet? This has nothing to do with Emmure. You're fired.

"So does this mean no more MPB?" -the last album 'do not resuscitate' was pretty much their last album. they aren't broken up, from what i hear, but on indefinite hiatus.

Best band in Albany? I guess that's true if you don't know any other bands from the area OR anything about music. (I enjoyed the BURN THIS CITY song though...well not so much song as "minute long breakdown")

Everyone that talks shit on this website is a gay, if you don't enjoy or like this band don't comment at all. And if you do like this band and you're still continuing to run your mouth, be grateful that Recon is finally releasing new music, maybe we'll get lucky and Mike will quit Emmure.

3/13/2012 8:19:52 AM
^ Because those two bands sound real different now, don't they? Retard
