Hailing from New Haven, CT and parts of Western Mass, Iron Hand is a crust/d-beat hardcore band incorporating past and contemporary influences within the genre, such as Discharge, State Of Fear, and Crow. Lyrically, the band addresses its sociopolitical criticisms while also taking opportunity to address personal introspection. The band features current and past members of They And The Children, Estrogen Highs and Last Words (as well as a bunch of others).

Expire, the latest addition to the Six Feet Under roster is leading the way of a movement of a young crop of bands based in the Midwest. Having released a demo in 2009 followed by the “Grim Rhythm” 7″ in March of 2010, Expire has been busy writing songs, touring, and showing the hardcore scene what the future sounds like.
“Suffer The Cycle” is the new 7″ from Expire on Six Feet Under Records. Recorded at Young Brothers Studios with Taylor Young (Nails), Expire has put together 4 songs of straightforward, heavy-hitting hardcore. Members of Expire live in different parts of the midwest and the band seems to draw influences from the east and west coasts, finding a happy medium with heavy grooves reminiscent of the NYHC style and fast parts that are worthy of a good ‘ole California circle pit. If the best of both worlds sounds good to you, see Expire on tour, mark your calendars and get ready for “Suffer The Cycle.”

A brand new 7″ release from Group Tightener — the first-ever physical release by Expensive Looks (aka Alec Feld)! The introductory 7-inch features two songs, with the B-side exclusive to this release. “Vanishers” is a hazy, slow-build of electronic loops and Alec Feld’s passionate croon, diping through the echoey peaks and valleys of a teen searcher’s bedroom wail. “Simon” gets a bit more sinister with off kilter samples mixing a criss cross of varient vocal attacks. The record is just a taste of the textured dance-oriented full length that will see its release on Group Tightener this summer. Limited to 500 copies (and available for preorder now).
