Texas powerhouse Modern Pain kick off US tour and stream new EP

Peace Delusions b/w Kill Yr. Idols is a teaser EP for a forthcoming full-length by Texas powerhouse Modern Pain. The A-side, “Peace Delusions” (which will appear in re-recorded form on the LP) offers a caustic, noisy preview of what’s to come, maintaining a traditionally stomping and aggressive, forward-moving fast beat while conveying an eerie, paranoia-ridden atmosphere. The B-side, a cover of the legendary Sonic Youth’s “Kill Yr. Idols”, from an early EP of theirs of the same name, acts as a sensible referential point for where the band plan on taking hardcore: into the strange and unconventional.

Listen to Peace Delusions b/w Kill Yr Idols here.  More news from Modern Pain coming soon – see them on tour in the U.S. now through June 16th.

“Coming from one of the same scenes that brought about killers like Power Trip, Wiccans, and more, Modern Pain take more references from hardcore of yesteryear, soaking in everything from SSD to Infest to Warzone and beyond to create their vitriolic punk rock anthems.” – Noisey
