Virginia Beach metallic hardcore outfit ACCIDENT PRONE has completed their latest record, the Deep Wound Red EP, which they’ll release in August in conjunction with new tour dates. The EP’s “Despairado” is now streaming alongside preorders for the record and the first confirmed tour dates.
Formed in late 2011 by a group of high school friends, ACCIDENT PRONE began their journey by traveling out of town to play shows as often as possible soon after their local debut. After a string of EPs, a split, a full-length record, and several lineup changes, the band fully honed-in on their blend of modern hardcore and spastic metalcore, culminating with the release of their 2016 EP, Love. Hate., produced by Andreas Magnusson (Oh, Sleeper, The Black Dahlia Murder, Scarlet).
ACCIDENT PRONE has continued to develop as musicians and songwriters by reaching a new apex on their new release, Deep Wound Red, exhibiting the band’s savagely unique guitar riffs and seething, aggressive vocals layered on top of the technical, crushing rhythm section. Deep Wound Red was produced by Lee Dyess (Against Me!, From First to Last, Evergreen Terrace), mastered by Brad Boatright (Oathbreaker, Code Orange, Full Of Hell), and completed with artwork by Rusty Painter.
Even as they’ve strayed into new territory with a refreshing display harmonious melodic sections, ACCIDENT PRONE has continued to stay true to their hardcore roots with an attitude and intensity matched by few in the current DIY scene.
