Saturday, April 12, 2014 2:45 PM PT

Official press release:

Midwestern heavy hitters Expire recently wrapped recording on their second full-length at Howl Street Recordings in Milwaukee. Following its completion, the album went into the hands of Jay Maas at Getaway Studios for mastering and is now ready to be heard. Titled Pretty Low, this new album features eleven tracks of honest and uncompromising hardcore and is the follow-up to Expire's Bridge Nine Records debut Pendulum Swings, which was called "one of the best hardcore albums to be released this decade" by Rise HXC.

Since Expire's formation in 2009, they've released demos and 7 inches, toured the globe numerous times over, hit festival after festival, and released their landmark debut full-length Pendulum Swings in May of 2012. They've been on the road almost non-stop over the last two years, with not even a hint of slowing down in 2014. Expire kicked the year off with dates in Japan, Europe and the UK, and have already canvassed the United States. Now, Expire is gearing up for the release of Pretty Low on June 17th as they finish out their tour dates with Stick To Your Guns and Terror and play highly coveted sets at festivals like Rain Fest (Seattle) and This Is Hardcore (Philadelphia). A very, very exciting summer tour will be announced soon as well.

Song premieres, videos and pre-order information will be coming soon from Expire and Bridge Nine Records.

Good afternoon everyone I'm Billy and I just got off the phone with Ken. He's decided to take life a little more serious for now on. No more 72 hr. long parties at his (parents) place. He's started framing and drywalling an empty space in his parents basement, it's going to be his official guitar room. He already wrote a song 'Unearth METALHEAD', he even tabbed out a solo: eb:3-2-3-5-3-2-2-5-6-8-6-7 -9-10-12-11-12-14-12\-15-1 6-18-19-16-17-19-22-19-20- 22-19-20-19-20-22-|
thank you-Billy

Who ever commented first I hope you get AIDS. These guys tour relentlessly. Always great shows and they've worked hard to get where they are.

Pendulum Swings was unlistenable. Horrible...I'm sure "Pretty Low" will meet the "Pretty Low" expectations.

Pendulum Swings was phenomenal. You're just mad cause you can't leave your moms basement or else your dad will be forced to suck you off.

Take Offense, Fire & Ice, and Turnstile are the only HC bands worth listening to

Let me guess, you're a new jack hardcore kid who has old pictures on your facebook wearing a Falling in Reverse shirt with a swooped emo haircut, color black or course.

Entry level hardcore kids are stoked worldwide. fck these stupid pretentious suburban introverts who act all arrogantly c-cky because they are straight edge but deep down they're just a bunch of shy and socially awkward fcks. Real tough guys, making tour documentaries of yourselves listening to hip-hop in your shit touring van. Hop off B9 the gayest label ever and quit music.

"Entry level hardcore kids" HAHAHAHAHAHAH. What time is the mosh training class?
