It’s true, kids.
The band known as SSS (or Short Sharp Shock) have signed a worldwide deal with Prosthetic Records.
SSS formed in Liverpool in 2005, and are an uncompromising crossover outfit with three albums on Earache Records already under their belts.
With a background deeply rooted within the U.K. hardcore underground, SSS truly embody the “crossover” tag, bringing together an aggressive hardcore attitude, punk-fueled crust defiance, metal precision and grindcore’s raw intensity.
The band’s gritty style draws from such heavyweights as Discharge, DRI, Napalm Death, Infest, Terrorizer and Motorhead.
Nonplussed as always, the enraged lyrical content of SSS rails against a misanthropic modern age while never losing their self-effacing sarcasm that can cut the self-righteous down to size.
Next month, Prosthetic will issue a special limited 7-inch by the band to coincide with their appearance at this year’s Damnation Festival in Leeds.
Called Manipulated Living, it features three new recordings and will be limited to 500 copies.
Once it’s sold out, it’s dead, folks.
