Incendiary frontman Brendan Garone loves rugby and holds a master's in anthropology. That about sums up the band's debut full-length, Crusade -- hard-charging, heavy hardcore that nonetheless keeps an intelligent and thoughtful approach to its absolute outrage. The band draws from the mid-`90s variety, having garnered multiple comparisons to Trial, Strife and Snapcase, while the album features guest spots from the likes of Jeff Tiu (ex-This Is Hell / the Backup Plan) and Drew York (Stray from the Path).
You can stream the Long Island, NY-based band's Crusade at their Punknews.org Profile. The vinyl/digital-only release will be officially released later this month on Eternal Hope Records, following up last year's Amongst the Filth 7".
