Season Of Mist has announced the signing of the infamous New York City street punk band THE CASUALTIES. The group’s ne walbum was recorded at Planet Z Studios in Massachusetts with producer Chris “Zeuss” Harris (MUNICIPAL WASTE, MADBALL, HATEBREED) and will be released later in the year.
THE CASUALTIES (Jorge Herrera – lead vocals, Rick Lopez – bass/vocals, Jake Kolatis – guitar/vocals, Meggers – drums) combine influences from the classic punk sound of GBH, THE EXPLOITED, ENGLISH DOGS, DISCHARGE and UK SUBS with modern extreme sounds and a thrash/crossover edge.
THE CASUALTIES have released five acclaimed records on Side One Dummy, and toured to almost every corner of the globe in clubs and on festivals alongside giants like BAD RELIGION, GWAR, HATEBREED, FLOGGING MOLLY, MUNICIPAL WASTE, TSOL, AGNOSTIC FRONT and more.
Commented the band: “We are joining the dark forces of Season Of Mist! We’re more then honored to bring our blend of hardcore-street-thrash-punk to the battle to keep heavy music alive! We have a new album ready and we will see you all on the road everywhere in the world soon!”
THE CASUALTIES will co-headline this summer’s “Tonight We Unite!” tour alongside the NEKROMANTIX. The trek will also include DOWN BY LAW, LOWER CLASS BRATS, and more.
