Philadelphia’s Jesus Piece share their new single “Punish“, as the band’s Only Self debut album nears release later this month via Southern Lord. Only Self was recorded in Chicago at Bricktop Recording Studio with Andy Nelson (Weekend Nachos, Like Rats, Dead In The Dirt) mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege (Integrity, Nails, Xibalba), and completed with artwork by Dom Pabon.
Jesus Piece are quickly developing a reputation as one of the heaviest, most uncompromising acts both on record and on the stage, and they are a band who work tirelessly to play to everyone they can. Incorporating elements of noise, ominous tones, and haunting atmospheres into their dynamic songwriting – and with crushing, modern production – the eleven new tracks on their Only Self debut place Jesus Piece among the scene’s darkest and heaviest acts.
Southern Lord will release Only Self, one of the most anxiously-awaited albums of the hardcore/metal underground this year, on CD, LP, and digital formats on Friday, August 24th. Find digital preorders at Bandcamp where “Curse Of The Serpent” and “Neuroprison” are streaming and find physical preorder options via the European store.
