“…a ripping dose of shouty punk that sounds like it could’ve come from the ’80s SoCal scene, but with Martyrdöd-style leads in the mix.” — BrooklynVegan

Ei Kuole Koskaan is the impending new full-length from Finnish melodic hardcore punk unit TRYER. In advance of its April 12th release via Suicide Records, BrooklynVegan offers up the band’s latest single from the album, “Zen,” crowning the track, “…a ripping dose of shouty punk that sounds like it could’ve come from the ‘80s SoCal scene, but with Martyrdöd-style leads in the mix.”
Adds TRYER vocalist Jussi Kahola, “As opposed to avoiding pain and trying to find constant happiness and truth, it’s much more comforting to realize that some things are out of our hands and we can’t find the everlasting inner peace and a life without pain. Pain, as a part of being alive and giving it it’s legitimate place in our lives as a passing feeling, makes it much more understandable and easier to handle. ‘Zen’ is something that you shouldn’t try to find. Like pain, it will find you.”

Over the course of eleven tracks, TRYER builds on a concrete foundation that combines fast, melodic punk rock, feisty trash-riffs and hardcore aesthetics with a heavy metal twist. The band manages to capture the same intensity that has made them an underground success, known for their staggering live performances delivered with feverish energy. Ei Kuole Koskaan was recorded by Mikael Neves and TRYER, mixed by Kurt Ballou of Converge at GodCity Studios and mastered by Brad Boatright (Weekend Nachos, Nails, Magrudergrind, Wake, Tragedy) at Audiosiege with cover art and layout by Jussi “Hytky” Pohjanen (Amorphis, Hexvessel).
Ei Kuole Koskaan will be released on CD, LP, cassette, and digital formats. For preorders visit the Suicide Records Bandcamp page at THIS LOCATION where first single “Tavat Ja Tarpeet” can be streamed.

Forged in 2010, TRYER plays hard and fast hardcore punk with a heavy metal spinkick to the gut. The Finnish four-piece has raced its way through packed and sweaty basement shows to major music festivals such as Provinssi and Ilosaarirock, without ever sacrificing their inherent intensity and commitment to themselves or their audience. Sharing stages with the likes of Raised Fist, Propagandhi, and SNFU, the band has garnered a reputation as one of the greatest live acts in Finland today. You might leave a TRYER-show exhausted or bruised, but you will leave with a smile every time!
