Dead Friends - Them, Them 7" - IFB018

Dead Friends are an awesome band from Gainesville, FL, and I'm happy to be a part of this release with Drugged Conscience and Obscurist Press Records. Merkit got to go on tour with these young men, sharing burritos and basements.  This is hardcore characterized by frantic energy and chaotic melody. Everyone sings, each bringing their own feel to the songs. I hear a lot of Assfactor 4 in this, which is great because that spastic, bottled up energetic sound has not been explored well enough. The covers are screenprinted and are just the kind of slightly offputting art that I like so much. These are sold out.

Tracks labeled 01-06 are from the 7", the rest are others from the same recording session for you!
