"...some cool hardcore." - Razorcake
In support of their debut self-titled album released this summer on No Idea Records, Oxnard / Ventura, CA-based punk and hardcore band Stop Breathinghave premiered the video for their new song "What I Want" exclusively at Altpress.com. In addition, the band is also announcing a series of upcoming fall dates along the West Coast with Good Riddance, as well as dates in Mexico with DFMK (full itinerary below).
Recorded by Roger Camero (No Motiv/Warriors/Gravemaker) at Bright Lights Studio and mastered by Paul Miner (Death By Stereo/H20) at Buzz Bomb Sound Labs, Stop Breathings debut LP channels the energy and urgency of their areas historic Nardcore predecessors, while merging it with late 80s hardcore. Imagine RKL partying it up in New York City during the late 80s and you get a picture of where theyre coming from..
Stop Breathing frontman and drummer for The Fucking Wrath John Crerar says of the new album "All the songs are kinda varied subject wise but I guess I would say the songs are about living in our fucked up times, but knowing life is short, and that we gotta make the most of the time we have. We are not going to put up with the shit that is constantly being thrown at us anymore. We're not gonna be quiet and take it."
