Official press release:
Northern Virginia-based grind/rock trio Drugs Of Faith will release their new 7″ EP, Decay, in early September through their allies at Poland’s extreme label Selfmadegod Records. A brief teaser and other details for the record have been issued.
The Drugs Of Faith lineup is comprised of vocalist/guitarist Richard Johnson (Enemy Soil, Agoraphobic Nosebleed), bassist Ivan Khilko (Immanent Voiceless, Destroyer of Worlds), and drummer Ethan Griffiths (Embra). Since its 2002 inception, the band has released an array of recordings through Selfmadegod Records, Malokul, Contaminated Tones, and more. The band has appeared in the Decibel Magazine Flexi Series, on a Godflesh tribute compilation, has recorded a split 7″ with Cloud Rat and a split 3″ CD with Antigama, and most recently issued a track on an anti-Trump compilation.
Drugs Of Faith now unveils the Decay EP, marking the first studio release since 2013’s Architectural Failures. Recorded with Kevin Bernsten at Developing Nations in Baltimore (Full Of Hell, Magrudergrind) and mastered by JC Griffin at Lakebottom Recording (Cloud Rat, Ceremony Of Senses), Decay delivers five searing tracks. The band’s patented and methodical mid-paced grinding rock is riddled with calculated aggression and unavoidable hooks.
