Lambgoat today unloads the opening track to Sanity Decays, the debut LP from Columbia, South Carolina-based hardcore outfit, DISCOURSE, as Closed Casket Activities kicks off the label’s most intense year yet with the release of the album in late January.
Sanity Decays’ ten vigorous tracks boast DISCOURSE’s refreshing hybrid of jagged hardcore, citing the likes of purveyors Turmoil, Indecision and Buried Alive, with a vibrant approach that breathes furious punk rock energy with enraged, modern sensibilities. Recorded with Andy Nelson (Weekend Nachos) at Bricktop Recording Studio in Chicago, and the vocals captured at The Jam Room with Jay Matheson in the band’s hometown, Sanity Decays was mixed by Nelson and mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege (Integrity, Nails, Tragedy), and bears cover art by Jesse Schaller (Skeletonwitch, Xibalba, Suburban Scum). Opening the album is the punishing, “Cure” which features guest vocals from Thomas Pearson of Foundation, and as the first single to be released from Sanity Decays, is now playing exclusively at Lambgoat.
DISCOURSE’s “Cure” can be found now at THIS LOCATION.
Sanity Decays will see release via Closed Casket Activities on January 27th on 12” vinyl and digital formats. Preorders are available HERE.
