FAMILY album stream

Family, the Brooklyn band singled out by Decibel Magazine as "sure to be one of our favorites of 2012", are now streaming their entire new album, Portrait, exclusively on MetalSucks.

MetalSucks reports: "In the epicenter of the Venn diagram showing modern prog metal, classic rock, and '90s heavy alternative lies Brooklyn's Family, a new band that deftly controls that unlikely intersection of heavy sub-genres with stunning aplomb."

Portrait was recorded by Justin Mantooth at Translator Audio (Unane, Cave In) and mastered by Alan Douches at West West Side Music (Mastodon, Torche). The album sees its European release on October 29th via Pelagic Records, the label founded by Robin Staps of German band The Ocean. Family self-release the album in the US on October 30th. The US pre-order is here.

A record release show is set for November 2nd at Union Pool in Brooklyn, NY, with Hivesmasher and End It.
