CDC has an announcement. No, it’s not the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention CDC telling us that the hardcore punk band, and the announcement is the cover art and new song reveal of their upcoming EP, End. The EP might not drop until February 17th, but you can check out the new song, “Degeneration,” right now over at BlowTheScene.com.apocalypse is in full swing. I know, we all wish it would happen. The CDC with an announcement today is the Lansdale, Pennsylvania-based DIY
The track is a riff-heavy hardcore thrasher with tons of ups and downs, breakdowns and speed ups, amazing vocals, and sweet bass lines. You’ll really have to hear it for yourself to know what I’m talking about, and you won’t do wrong for checking out “Degeneration.”
Following their most recent bout of international touring through Europe in December and November, and subsequent Southeastern U.S. mini-tour with labelmates Society Sucker, CDC will bring their energetic live set to more American fans over the coming months in support of End, the band’s brand new five-track EP with some of their most paralyzing material to date. With a slick, streetwise, and tension-fueled delivery, the somewhat rap-infused vocals cast a harsh and realistic view of modern society, resulting in an unreserved, contemporary beatdown release. The tracks were recorded with Vince Ratti at Skylight Studio (Balance And Composure, Title Fight, Turmoil) and mastered by Will Yip at Studio 4 (Cop Problem, Lauren Hill, Blacklisted), and End‘s daredevil-as-fuck comic style cover art created by Fist City out of Savannah, Georgia.
Pre-orders for the digital and vinyl versions of End will be available in the coming days, as the record sees co-release with Beatdown Hardwear for Europe and Get This Right Records, which is partially owned and operated by members of CDC, for North America. Additionally, CDC has more touring in their immediate future, including a tour of Puerto Rico in April, in conjunction with the band’s confirmed performance at Southeast Beast Fest in Jacksonville, Florida, on April 4th and 5th, joining the likes of Life Of Agony, Biohazard, Cro-Mags, Earth Crisis, Rotting Out, King Nine, and more.
