The Shape Of Punk To Come & Baroeg Present: Ithaca + Respire
Event on facebook
Acclaimed UK metallic hardcore group Ithaca return with their stunning, long-awaited second album, They Fear Us, due 29th July via
Hassle Records. Formed out of a mutual love of metallic hardcore but despair at its lack of ambition, Ithaca exist to challenge everything you thought a band that makes heavy music should look and sound like. A glitter-covered nailbomb, Ithaca seamlessly blend the brutality of Relapse Records metalcore with blackgaze, 90s industrial metal, 70s prog and even tinges of 80s power pop.
Canadian DIY collective Respire have been crafting genre defying soundscapes since forming in the bitter winter of 2013, when they spent evenings and weekends honing their craft in a frigid west-end Toronto basement. Blending lush, emotive orchestration with the fervor and aggression of blackened hardcode, Respire aim to create hopeful music for troubling times.
