As Beer City Records And Skateboards prepares to blast the collective public in the face with speed punk quartet DEATHWISH‘s debut LP, Out For Blood, Decibel Magazine unloads the first single from the unhinged album through an exclusive premiere.
Out For Blood splays the DEATHWISH style of melding metallic elements into the old-school punk chassis of their off-the-tracks locomotive, the train’s engine running on kilo kegs of nitroglycerine and its course set by Motörhead and GBH. Based in northern Wisconsin, with members hailing from Wartorn, Dresden, The Parish and more, the band is a motorcharged quartet that annihilates everything in its path, where elements of punk, hardcore and straight-up rock collide in a mangled inferno. Out For Blood was recorded with Adam Tucker at Signaturetone Recording, and mastered by Jack Control (Severed Head of State, World Burns to Death) at Enormous Door Mastering, and features art by Marald, Randall Witte and Doomsday Graphics. Decibel Magazine is now crushing heads in with the new album’s second song, “Deathwish,” the brutalizing namesake track carrying forth the most characteristic traits of DEATHWISH and the band’s straightforward attack.

Marking the first in a three album deal with Milwaukee-based Beer City Skateboards And Records, DEATHWISH will release the LP version of Out For Blood as an official Record Store Day title on Saturday, April 18th, limited to 1000 copies on translucent red vinyl. The digital version will also be live the same day as the vinyl, as will a limited edition cassette version on OSD Press and Berzerker Records. Beer City will release the CD version of Out For Blood with full distribution on May 12th. Preorders for the CD are live right HERE.
Additional dates have been added to the impending US tour which will see DEATHWISH supporting Out For Blood on the road alongside seminal Texas hardcore punk lords, and labelmates, MDC.

The tour comes to a close on May 20th, with the final details coming together now. In addition to the tour with MDC, DEATHWISH has been locked for Cruststock Vol. 3 in late June, as one of more than forty bands to raid Anaheim, California for the three-day event, including, Deviated Instinct, Antisect, Capitalist Casualties, Wartorn, Theories, The Restarts, The System, War/Plague, Thulsa Doom and countless more.
