Long-running online community, Lambgoat, is now playing the entire new self-titled EP from Detroit hardcore powerhouse, POISON TONGUES, as the record hits the streets this week via Fast Break! Records.
Formed by a cast of hardcore veterans having done time with Earthmover, The Alliance, Cast In Fire, Hyde, Bale, Without Warning, Bloody Knuckle Combat, All My Blood and others, POISON TONGUES brings the hardened sound of 1990s hardcore back to life from the ashes of Detroit. Priding themselves on the art of true storytelling on their brand new For Freedom’s Sake EP, the band brings the past, present and future into an uninterrupted glimpse of honest, sharpened, legitimate hardcore set to define our times. With a relentless surge of energetic, rapid deployment of their vicious hooks, the new release offers the band’s strongest material yet, with four new tracks. For Freedom’s Sake was produced by Mike Eckert, the drums recorded by J.C. Griffen at Lakebottom Recording House and all guitars, bass and vocals recorded by Mike Eckert, the results then mixed and mastered by Patrick Elmore at Solar Genesis Studios.

POISON TONGUES was founded with the emphasis to inject as much of the brutal ’90s influence of their past projects into this new beast. Steady lineup changes over the past five years have finally settled with the band’s most solid and furious alignment of personnel to date, each member bringing a different element of volatility into the mix, which culminates into a vicious, streetwise attack with a scorching thrash edge. Forging against the corrupted media blitz that controls our society, the group delivers an intelligent and uninterrupted glimpse of personal and also political hymns that are learned and gathered through everyday life, the goal of POISON TONGUES to inform as much as it is to destroy every stage the band comes into contact with.
