South Carolina hardcore act Discourse are gearing up to release a debut LP on Closed Casket Activities on January 27th entitled, Sanity Decays, before hitting the road in support in February. Blow The Scene has the pleasure of debuting smoldering new track, “Time Pries” below the fold in anticipation of this buzz-worthy effort.
Crafting a sound that is firmly rooted in 90s hardcore worship with a taste for modern brutality, Discourse dips into territories fans of Turmoil and Indecision should find more than worthy. Discourse has been fanning the embers of an underground buzz manifested through a series of compilation releases, demos, a 7″ EP, plus live appearances alongside such mainstays as Cro-Mags, Earth Crisis, and Nails to name but a few since the band’s inception in 2011.
Discourse signed to Closed Casket Activities in the Fall of 2013 for the release of their debut full-length, Sanity Decays, joining the label’s brutal roster including releases from Twitching Tongues, Harm’s Way, Xibalba, Incendiary and Suburban Scum and many others. Sanity Decays was recorded at Bricktop Recording Studio in Chicago, Illinois in March of 2014 with Andy Nelson (Weekend Nachos) to harness the band’s destructive tunes, and in April tracked the vocals at The Jam Room with Jay Matheson in the band’s hometown. Nelson mixed the tracks and they were shipped to Audiosiege (Integrity, Nails, Tragedy) to be mastered by Brad Boatright.
