Berthold City (mem Strife) releasing new EP this week (stream it in full)

Berthold City

Berthold City, the new-ish straightedge band fronted by Strife guitarist Andrew Kline, are following last year’s Moment of Truth 7″ with another new 7″, What Time Takes, this Friday (6/14) via WAR Records (pre-order). Kline says that the EP is “about realizing that our time on earth is limited” and dedicated to the memory of Gorilla Biscuits’ Alex Brown and Todd Youth (Warzone, Murphy’s Law, etc). The four rippers on this EP are also cut from a very similar NYHC cloth as the bands Alex and Todd played in, and I think it’s safe to say this EP would’ve made them proud. Here’s Andrew Kline’s full quote:

What Time Takes is about realizing that our time on earth is limited. It’s about recognizing the things that are important to you and having the courage to live your life your way. The older I get the more I realize how precious life is. I dedicated this EP to the memory of Alex Brown (Gorilla Biscuits) and Todd Youth (Warzone, Fireburn), two musicians that not only made a huge impact on my life but left an undeniable mark on the hardcore scene.

You can grow up and not grow old… You can take on real life responsibilities while not letting go of the things that make you feel alive. You’re only young once, so do it right!!!

The EP was recorded and mixed by Aaron Jamili and mastered by Arthur Rizk, and it’s got exactly the kind of clear-but-unpolished sound you want from this kinda thing. A full stream premieres below.
