Sainthood Reps

Long Island post-hardcore band Sainthood Reps have announced that they'll release a new album, Headswell, the follow-up to their 2011 debut, on October 22 via their new label home, No Sleep Records (Braid, La Dispute). The opening track/first single, "Shelter," opens up like it's going to be a long lost Nirvana single, but then once the vocals come in, it transitions into total hardcore punk attack. Other elements of alt-rock and and a bit of shoegaze/post-rock fill the track out too, making for an anthemic and diverse recall of the '90s. Check it out below, and if you like what you hear, you can pre-order the record. That's the album art above.

As discussed, Sainthood Reps are also touring this year, and they'll play NYC on October 24 at Knitting Factory with I Am the Avalanche, I Hate Our Freedom, and Sad and French. Tickets for that show are still available.

I can't believe there are still tickets available for the Sainthood Reps show at the end of October. Sometimes life can be pretty cool.

Too many 90s throwback bands anymore

This band has matured so well over time. Expecting great things from these guys!

Too many 90's throwback bands? What do you expect? That's bound to happen with every decade when the kids from that time are grown up and making their own music.

Leaps and bounds above Monoculture. This song and "Deadlines" off their split with Weatherbox are two of the best songs I've heard all year. There many be a lot of 90's influenced bands coming out in the scene now but these guys along with Title Fight and Balance and Composure are at the top of the pack.

This sounds like anthrax and Alice in chains, if they were practicing in the same building.

its not screaming. its shouting, and i love it. your music is so rad and the timbre of your tone is off the chain.
