Advent back together

North Carolina hardcore/metal band Advent has reformed and is currently working on new music. Originally launched in 2005, the group broke up in 2011 after releasing two albums with Solid State Records.

Regarding the reunion, vocalist Joe Musten had this to say: "I am super amped to announce that Advent is back from the grave. It's a decision we all made together about nine months ago and we are all finally to a point where we are able to move forward."

Tracking for the new record will commence on March 28 with Kris Hilbert at Legitimate Business in Greensboro, NC. The band intends to fund the outing via a new merch store and Bandcamp account for putting out rare and unreleased songs. According to the band, "Some of these are demos and some of these songs very few people have ever heard. These songs will be available to download for free and there will be a option to donate any amount you would like that would go straight to the recording."

As for live appearances, Advent will play shows again, though at this time they "are not sure how many or when."

lol @ the dipshit comparing Advent to Nails.
when Advent formed, Todd Jones was still being a super posi sXe br0 with an X Swatch in Betrayed.
so, if anything, Nails stole Advent's aesthetic. old Advent merch confirms this.
try again. i'm sure you will, try-hard.

Easily one of the last great metallic hardcore bands. Even the super-worship lyrics couldn't stop me from moshing the Jesus out of everyone near me in the pit. I can feel the power of the great one coursing in my veins. TRUMP 2016. MAKE AMERICA WHITE AGAIN

Okay music, terrible religious views and lyrics.

These dudes say what they say but they NEVER preach at people. They do shows with bands like YAITW and Torchrunner to intentionally seperate themselves from the cheesy Christian bands of their day. One of the best bands to EVER come out NC. Much respect and I hope everything goes well for them.

how does Advent have "super-worship" lyrics? Name another Christian band who sings "Religion has failed us"? Do you actually know what a 'Super-worship' type is? They would be mortified by Advent's lyrics. Get out of here.

youth medium white tee, check. 1950s haircut/neck beard, check. nut tight rolled jeans / zero camo cargo shorts, check. anyone who references touché amore or this f ck story as a measure of musical taste (past or present) deserves to be thrown down an endless flight of stairs.
