Connecticut-based indie label Ear One Productions has rolled out information on their upcoming winter and spring releases.
The label, formed in 2012 by hardcore and music scene vets Mike Livingston and Jay Reason, has a roster comprised only of bands from the Nutmeg State.
In 2013, the label will issue new music from traditional, occult-bent metal trio Nightbitch, who are influenced by wicked women, unholy passions and fire nights.
They will unleash their latest Danzig and Blackmoore-driven bone metal anthems with the three song Chainmaker 12-inch. Regular readers know that the band features Ipsissimus guitarist Ryan Adams — also known as The Goat.
Drummer and vocalist Chris Taylor (Treebeard, Garbage Barge) and bassist Mark Eles (De Omega) round out the band.
This spring, roaring experimental doom trio When The Deadbolt Breaks will drop their most massive musical endeavor to date, with their sprawling fourth full-length release, Drifting Towards The Edge Of The Earth.
And in late spring, the entire discography from Ear One co-owner Jay Reason’s first band, Voice of Reason, will be back in stores.
The band made a major impact in the New England hardcore scene and beyond in the mid-late 90s, boasting a high-paced, positive/anthem-based delivery but still maintaining a hard edge of urgency similar to early acts like Chain Of Strength, Seven Seconds and Gorilla Biscuits, and at the time comparable to Ten Yard Fight and Ensign.
Called Looking Back to The Way Things Were: Voice of Reason 1995 – 2001, the band will release a remastered collection of the band’s 32-song discography.
