“A trial of our strength. A testament to our anger.” — ENDORPHINS LOST
Pacific Northwest hardcore/powerviolence practitioners ENDORPHINS LOST will release their scathing Seclusions full-length next month via the newly-launched From The Head Of Zeus, helmed by Bay Area punk veteran Athena Kautsch (Six Weeks Records, Voetsek, The West Coast Powerviolence Project). Recorded, mixed, and mastered by Greg Wilkinson (Brainoil, Deathgrave, Graves At Sea) at Earhammer Studio in Oakland, California, Seclusions finds the band in their most ferocious form yet boasting fourteen tracks of audio acrimony; the sound of end times incarnate.

“A trial of our strength. A testament to our anger.” This is the embodiment of ENDORPHINS LOST, a fierce and manic powerviolence outfit based out of the Pacific Northwest. The band has continually evolved since its conception in 2009, increasing in speed and intensity while amplifying its rudimentary overtone of misanthropy and the inherent dysfunction of mankind.
2013’s debut release Blood Pact (What’s Left/Bad People/Nuclear Ass Records) was a steamroller of crusty grindcore mixed with pummeling d-beat and was immediately followed by a split seven-inch with Indonesia’s Tersanjung 13. A lengthy southeast Asia tour soon followed. In 2014, the band then released a split seven-inch with Indiana grind violence maniacs Flvx Capacitor (Rotten To The Core Records) before touring the West Coast and Mexico in 2015.
After drafting new personnel, ENDORPHINS LOST released their most relentless display of audio violence yet with 2016’s split with San Jose riff merchants Deathgrave (Rotten To The Core Records). More touring ensued before the release of their full-length debut, Choose Your Way later that year via Six Weeks Records. They rest of the year was filled out with regular gigs throughout the Northwest followed by Canadian bombardments in Vancouver and Victoria, British Columbia. Upon these regular assaults, they teamed up with Canadian face breakers OSK and hatched a plan that again took them into the studio. This time to record a split seven inch with OSK (2017; Rotten To The Core Records, Delusion Of Terror, Agromosh Records, New Age Pyrate Punx, All You Die Records). This was proceeded by a blistering western US tour before yet another trip to Earhammer Studio to fashion the sonic demolition that is this year’s Seclusions.
