We are very excited to offer Blow The Scene readers around the world a double premiere from the forthcoming Dying / Less Life, A Split Recording LP. Sharing the vegan straightedge philosophy and both with a unique spin on emotive hardcore that pulls from various niches including punk, crust, and even metal, this split will leave you thinking. Lyrical motifs run the gambit from personal focuses on isolation and hopelessness to animal and Earth liberation. Limited to 300 copies and pressed on white 150 gram vinyl with black splatter, housed in screen printed jackets and hand numbered, A Split Recording is a split release through Hydrogen Man, Endless Disaster, Cricket Cemetery, and European label Pure Heart Records.
Philadelphia’s Dying recorded their side with Steve Roche at Permanent Hearing Damage in Philadelphia, PA in September 2012 while NJ’s Less Life completed its side with Joe Delaqulla at Exeter Studios in New Jersey. Both bands have made waves with passonate and often unhinged live performances drawing equally emotional responses from audience members through numerous regional tours and special one-off performances. Both of these explosive bands will be featured at Blow The Scene Fest; Artists For Animals this Saturday June 29th at the Broad St. Ministry in Philadelphia playing alongside Dropdead, Masakari and more!
