20 Buck Spin presents the first 7” vinyl release in the label’s history, with the physical incarnation of FUGITIVE’s “Blast Furnace” b/w “Standoff,” confirmed for September release.

After the ripping introduction of Maniac in 2022, FUGITIVE is back with their best two tracks to date. Having already released the two tracks digitally, 20 Buck Spin now presents them on vinyl. The A-side features “Blast Furnace,” a mid-paced onslaught of anthemic crossover aggression and throat-shredding thrash. On the B-side, the motor-charged “Standoff” displays the hunger and frantic energy of a new band full of forceful vigor, with the writing, production and arrangement chops of seasoned live vets.

The two new songs were produced by Blake Ibanez, engineered and mixed by Rubio N., with the drums engineered by Drew Leclair and additional production by Slade Williams. The original master by Paul Logus was re-mastered by Will Killingsworth at Dead Air, and the record features cover art by Nicky Rat and Jack Bruce, with design/layout by Erick Cruz and Blake Ibanez.

With these two new tracks and the debut 12”, the stage is now set for a FUGITIVE takeover.

Set for physical release on September 29th, the “Blast Furnace” b/w “Standoff” 7-inch is now available to preorder at the 20 Buck Spin website HERE and Bandcamp HERE. Direct orders from the label will receive a free 11×17 FUGITIVE promo poster while they last.
