Oregon-based metallic hardcore outfit FOES will release their latest material in the form of the American Violence 10” EP, nearing release through Glacier Recordings in two weeks. A new video for the record’s namesake track has been premiered through Decibel Magazine.
American Violence was recorded and produced by FOES’ Sonny Daniels and Garrett Judkins at their own Doom Room Studios in Sunriver, Oregon. The material was sent to Audiosiege (From Ashes Rise, Integrity, Black Breath) where it was edited and mixed by Derek Leisy and mastered by Brad Boatright. The cover art was created by Judkins and Daniels with editing and digital design by Taylor Bates at New Melody Art Design. The video for “American Violence” was created by Daydream Collective.
Decibel Magazine writes with the video’s premiere, “A bass build-up atop police sirens is ominous, but guitar comes in for the same riffs and upends any omen; no, the impact is imminent. Blast beats, muted death metal riffing and anxiety-driving panic chords are all weapons in their arsenal. They’re particularly effective because their usage is short, sweet and surprising, seemingly coming out of nowhere. The final breakdown is a punishing haymaker.”

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, FOES has been forced to cancel their West Coast US tour dates which were booked in conjunction with the record’s release. New dates will be booked in the months ahead.
