DOWNLOAD: Goes Cube "The Only Daughter" (MP3)

In cooking, it's called a reduction. If you filled a pot with post-hardcore from the 90s and simmered it down to the essence, that culinary delight might be Goes Cube. They cherry-pick the best moments from Quicksand, Helmet, and Jawbox, and deliver it with a thunder that would make an Orange amp technician proud. Don't take my word for it though, check out "The Only Daughter" from their debut LP Another Day Has Passed available for download above.
The new album is preparing for blast off via The End Records on May 12th. Produced by Dean Baltulonis (The Hold Steady, Sick Of It All, Most Precious Blood, others), the LP marks their fourth release over all, counting their now-sold-out EPs Beckon The Dagger God, Not What We Thought, and Hutchinson.
Goes Cube wrecked Hardcore Night this past Saturday (April 11th), and just two days after Another Day Has Passed hits store/digital shelves (May 14th), they will play a record release show at the Studio @ Webster Hall with Jones Street Station, The Austerity Program, Constants, and Red Beard. Ticket info is forthcoming, but they only cost a measly $8!
The Austerity Program are currently working on some new material and recently played Europa with Young Widows.
