ILLUSTRATIONS Announce New Digital EP "Acts of God" Out This Summer

"This electric sander to the skull of a song is gloriously unstable; it moves from circle-pit-inciting speed to head-bobbing groove to elephants marching maliciousness, all in under three minutes. This is good shit." - Metal Sucks

"The first few riffs in “Heaven” suggest straight-ahead metallic hardcore of the HM-2 collector’s variety. There’s a big, strutting mosh groove; the guitar and bass seethe with mids; the vocalist sounds like he might not have a tongue. But then, about halfway into the tune, one of the guitarists unexpectedly takes off into delay-pedal melody-land. Good cop/bad cop dynamics are endemic to the meeting points between metal and hardcore, but Illustrations play them more subtly than most. Wise choice." - Invisible Oranges

"In Vain is an onslaught of caustic death metal growls, bonecrushing guitar riffs, and unrelenting percussion; all executed with exemplary punk breeziness." - The Needle Drop

Following the news of their upcoming tour with Willowtip Records artists Plague Widow, as well as their critically acclaimed debut album, "In Vain," San Antonio's punk infused hardcore band ILLUSTRATIONS are announcing a their new digital EP "Acts Of God" out later this summer.
