OLD WOUNDS on AltPress

With the release of their debut album, From Where We Came Is Where We'll Rest, just days away, Old Wounds have teamed up with Alternative Press to present the premiere of "Bitter Days", a new song off the debut.

"Bitter Days" showcases the "hellraising trio" at their best, revitalizing the metallic hardcore spirit of bands like Turmoil and Indecision.

From Where We Came Is Where We'll Rest was recorded by Kevin Bernsten at Developing Nations (Pulling Teeth, Full of Hell) and mastered by Dan Randall at Mammoth Sound (Magrudergrind, Toxic Holocaust). In the words of Pitchfork's Grayson Currin, the album sees the band "lashing ahead at a furious hardcore clip... [Old Wounds] pairs the maudlin pages of high school diaries with a grown-ass band's concision and power." Out February 26 on Glory Kid Ltd, the album can be pre-ordered here.

Old Wounds hit the road next week for a full US tour, featuring shows with Ringworm, Full of Hell, Vices, and more.
