Under Attack are a Richmond, VA, band who could justifiably be called a supergroup depending on which punk bar you're in. Featuring Municipal Waste drummer Dave Witte and former members of Limp Wrist, Discordance Axis, Devoid of Faith, Human Remains and more, the quartet of spry veterans make rowdy hardcore that's already landed them scenester acclaim and a 7-inch on the venerable punk imprint Iron Lung Records
Next month, the band will release a more robust, eight-track EP called Preservation's Crash through Three One G, and today we're proud to be premiering its ripping title-track. At a minute and 15 seconds, the song channels the punky sound of the early '80s (think SSD, Negative Approach) but with grindcore levels of aggression. Frontman Alex Copeland is an animated vocalist with a piercing roar, and Witte's blast-beats give the track a pounding edge that brings it up to the modern era.
"'Preservation's Crash' is about living life in misery and seeing no way out," Copeland tells us. "Every day drifting deeper and deeper into darkness. To eventually come to the realization that the only way out of the pain is to end your own life."
Blast the track below via Bandcamp. The full Preservation's Crash EP is due out Friday August 27th via Three One G and vinyl pre-orders are available here.
