Merrimack Valley, MA’s hardcore band and Deathwish Inc. recording artists, Shipwreck A.D., made a tear through Philly’s O’Reillys venue with hometown friends Rude Awakening (Triple B Records, Arrest Records) earlier in the month for another raucous show brought to you by the Philly Hardcore Shows booking group.
With five years since Shipwreck AD‘s last studio offering, Abyss, fans are hopeful this current round of regional dates will prelude new material and future tours, but the band has yet to confirm or deny these speculations publicly.
Rude Awakening are currently supporting a demo EP, which is being offered for free on bandcamp. The band has been making waves throughout the hardcore community recently with regional touring including performances alongside Shattered Realm, Death Before Dishoner, and an appearance at The New England Metal and Hardcore Festival. Rude Awakening has tour plans slated with Soul Control and will be featured on This Is Hardcore Fest 2012 in Philadelphia in August as they keep things moving.
On that note, we have some exciting news surrounding This Is Hardcore Fest 2012 to be announced in the coming days! So stay tuned.
Local support for this bill was rounded out by Sawed Off and Renegades.
