|EARTH CRISIS – COMPLETE WORK ON NEW ALBUM; ‘NEUTRALIZE THE THREAT’ SCHEDULED FOR JULY 12TH RELEASE|
|EARTH CRISIS is the most controversial band in hardcore. Their music has become the soundtrack to a movement of kids searching for an alternative lifestyle and has landed the band on the covers of magazines and even on national news networks to talk about their music and motives. Without a doubt, EARTH CRISIS is one of the most influential bands in the scene and they have now completed work on their latest effort – their 7th overall – which will be titled ‘Neutralize the Threat’ and is scheduled for release on July 12th via Century Media Records.
EARTH CRISIS had the following to say: “We are very happy with how ‘Neutralize The Threat’ came out. Musically, it resembles the song structures on ‘To The Death’, but with a ‘Gomorah’s Season Ends’ vibe thrown in. Every song is lyrically inspired by real-life vigilante actions that have taken place around the globe. The topics range from The Black Panther Party to Bernard Goetz and we think it’s an original lyrical concept for the band, while also retaining some subject matter we are known for dealing with in the past. Zeuss is the man and definitely delivered the best sounding record we have ever had! We can’t wait for you guys to hear it!”
The track listing for ‘Neutralize the Threat’ is as follows:
Plans are in the works for EARTH CRISIS to hit the road in support of ‘Neutralize the Threat’ so stay tuned for more info.
