HAVE MERCY ON US

Posted on February 12, 2008

According to a posting at Blabbermouth, New York hardcore legends Most Precious Blood are in the studio recording what will be their third full-length release for Trustkill Records. The album’s tentative title, “Merciless”, encompasses both the lyrical themes and music found on this new release. “The songs are a culmination of years and years of life experience: Betrayal, loss, grief, abandonment but forever trudging on in the face of immortal adversity. Life is merciless as are all the new songs,” says guitarist Justin Brannan. Though it promises to be the most punishing Most Precious Blood release yet, the band has also expanded their musical repertoire to include orchestral and electronic sounds. The band, who produced this album themselves along with Dean Balutonis, plans to follow up the recording of the new album with a tour across the UK with Napalm Death and Diecast. Most Precious Blood’s mix of aggressive riffs and scathing social commentary have been an integral part of the hardcore scene, particularly New York hardcore, following in the footsteps of forbears like Agnostic Front and Sick Of It All, who they have toured and are good friends with. The band has always been adamant about bringing the message with hardcore. Working with PETA and the ASPCA, distributing literature, speaking out and generally living by the hardcore philosophy, the members of Most Precious Blood remain true to their roots and have not been afraid to court controversy for their beliefs. The cover of their last album, “Our Lady of Annihilation”, was released to furor from retailers everywhere who refused to stock the album which featured the Lady Madonna with a bomb strapped to her chest. “The ferocity of the songs on this album will cause the controversy this time,” Brannan says. “We’ve never been afraid to try new things and we’re not going to stop now, but we know what’s what and this will be a bonafide Most Precious Blood hardcore album – more pissed off than ever before and 100 percent justified.” Most Precious Blood are playing the following dates with Napalm Death and Diecast 31st May – Exeter, Phoenix 1st June – Bristol, Beer Keller 2nd June – Swindon, Furnace 3rd June – Edinburgh, Studio 24 4th June – Sheffield, club Zero 5th June – Milton Keynes, Pitz 17th July – London, Koko 18th July – Birmingham, Acadamy 2
