Brooklyn hardcore/powerviolence outfit DETACH THE ISLANDS has issued the official video for “Love Is The Miracle We Fabricate,” found on their new debut full-length, The Burden To Become Fact, released on July 5th through the band’s own Dental Records. The song’s visual accompaniment makes its premiere through an exclusive at Decibel Magazine.
The Burden To Become Fact was written and produced by DETACH THE ISLANDS mastermind Emmett Ceglia, with additional lyrics on “Culture Architects” by Dan Kelly. The bass and drums were recorded by Dominic Nastasi at Vudu Studios, the guitars recorded by Siddhu Anandalingam at Si Doux Studios, and the vocals recorded by Emmett Ceglia at Dental Records HQ. The record was mixed by Ceglia at Dental Records HQ, mastered by Alan Douches at West West Side Music, and completed with artwork by Ceglia.
The “Love Is The Miracle We Fabricate” video was shot and edited by Keira Cronin, and directed by Ceglia, who offers with its premiere, “This video perfectly captures us as you would experience us live. It’s all one, unedited continuous shot, and that preserves the manic rawness that we are in person, holding back no inch of chaos. It’s gritty, DIY, and 100% DTI. What more could you want?”
Decibel Magazine posts, “Craving a cross between Pageninetynine, Combatwoundedveteran, Glassjaw, and The Dillinger Escape Plan? Look no further than ‘Love is the Miracle We Fabricate,’ the new single from Brooklyn noisemakers DETACH THE ISLANDS. Starting with dissonant chords before building into a fever pitch of panic chords, spastic drumming, ultra-tech riffs and emotive shrieks.”

DETACH THE ISLANDS delivers a dissonant barrage of hardcore, powerviolence, and screamo. The quintet spawned after the dissolving of math/prog-metal outfit, Autocatalytica, and so Emmett Ceglia struck out to forge his own path in heavy music. While on stage he is just the drummer, behind the scenes, he is the nerve center of the group writing just about every note and lyric. However, DTI has since evolved from its one-man-project origins into a fully-fledged hardcore machine with some of the Brooklyn scene’s best joining in the cathartic fury. Guitarists Jay Kohler (Juan Bond, Semaphore) and Siddhu Anandalingam (Juan Bond, Semaphore), bassist Eric Messihi (For Sleeping Or Jumping), and vocalist Ashley Levine (THIN, ex-Mary Todd) round out the lineup.
DETACH THE ISLANDS’ The Burden To Become Fact assaults the senses with technical, and emotive guitar work that often avoids genre norms, up front and filthy bass that glues the band together, desperate, cathartic, and raw screams, with a foundation of deadly precise, dizzying, and expressive drumming. The lyrical subjects range from politics to relationships, from living with Crohns Disease to the state of digital media. Moments of beauty and release keep the listener from getting battle fatigued from the predominantly discordant songs.
With a stage presence to beware, the group’s aim is to push extreme punk music into a rarely treaded discordant territory and sidestep the well-worn paths of the genres it works within. The Burden To Become Fact sees the band unloading calculated chaos minute after minute, blasting together elements of dizzying high-tension music that fans of Glassjaw, Pageninetynine, United Nations, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Cerce, and Combatwoundedveteran will want to hear right away.
