Portland's The Estranged are the latest band to join the roster of Dirtnap Records. Members of The Estranged have a lengthly history in Portland's hardcore/crust scene in bands such as Hellshock, Warcry, Remains of the Day and Absolute Rulers.

Dirtnap describes The Estranged as playing "crushing, ominous post punk ala Wipers meets Mission of Burma meets Warsaw/Joy Division" and are promising a fullā€“length from the band in the spring.
