Sweet Jesus

Massachusetts hardcore band Sweet Jesus have members of a handful of notable bands, Have Heart, Verse, Dropdead, Fucking Invincible and Soul Control, and their upcoming album was produced by J. Robbins (of Jawbox, etc), and features appearances by Shawn Brown (of Swiz, Dag Nasty, etc) and Andy Norton (of Praise). Last we heard from them, they were in NYC opening for Dischord vets Soulside. So you've probably got a pretty good idea of what to expect here. Their new album, You Destroy Yourself, is 10 tracks of real-deal hardcore. No frills, some hat-tips to their influences, but nothing that sounds overdone either. Listen for yourself -- a full stream premieres in this post.

The album will out on iTunes/Spotify on March 17, and Atomic Action is putting it out on vinyl this spring.
