Simply put, If you don’t know these two bands and are into hardcore, you NEED to be. Both bands have a very real passion and an uncanny talent that are sure to lead them to truly special places.
One of the most highly anticipated new hardcore albums has finally arrived. Check out the brand new effort from Florida band, With Increase, titled “Death is Inevitable” right here. It’s also available on CD/Vinyl here. Stream it below.
Minnesota-based Household recently released their debut music video for their song “Reservoir.” The band has plans for an east coast tour this coming spring. “Reservoir” can be downloaded for free/pay-what-you-want via bandcamp here. Check out the music video and free song, below. [Thanks Chris]
OH MY GOSH!! Thank you Blood & Ink Records for sending me quite possibly the best HARDCORE release of the past few years. The album is called “Death is Inevitable” and it’s from an on the rise Florida band by the name of With Increase. You fans of that classic 90′s hardcore sound from bands like Focal Point, early Overcome, Strongarm, along with Snapcase, Poison the Well, and Shai Hullud will fall in love with this band’s music. It has that “classic” sound yet they develop it into so much more than just the mundane, over done sound of yesteryear. If you’re hunting for that new band who embraces the hardcore culture and sound, look no further than Florida’s own With Increase. SFHXC 2014

For fans of Life In Your Way, Means, Shai Hullud, Strongarm, Stretch Arm Strong.
