Brooklyn-based Sacrament Music, founded at the beginning of 2013 by the owners of Saint Vitus Bar/Club, has already announced its second release for the year. Following the label’s recent virgin signing announcement for the debut from local cohorts Sannhet, Sacrament now confirms the pending debut from newly-formed metallic hardcore outfit WHITE WIDOWS.
Formed by drummer Kenny Appell (Goes Cube, Cleanteeth), bassist Brian Ponto, guitarists Nick Emde (The Destro) and Travis Bacon (Grudges), and vocalist David Castillo (Primitive Weapons, Saint Vitus Bar, Sacrament Music), WHITE WIDOWS merges NYC-style metallic hardcore and Southern sludge metal elements and production into mid-paced metallic grooves, slow-motion breakdowns and high-paced pit-swinging melees diversifying the flow over the self-titled debut’s twenty-four minute lifespan. The record was recorded with Dean Baltulonis at the Wild Arctic in Portsmouth, New Hampshire (Agnostic Front, Sick Of It All, Most Precious Blood, Goes Cube) and will see a digital release/exclusive shirt package via Sacrament Music on March 1st.
Among other regional shows to be confirmed continually, WHITE WIDOWS will storm Acheron in Brooklyn with Pittsburgh crust warriors Heartless in March, and have two shows with local pirates Mutilation Rites and Seattle deathbeaters Black Breath in Brooklyn and Philly in April.

4/20/2013 Knitting Factory – Brooklyn, NY w/ Black Breath, Mutilation Rites
