OLD WOUNDS on BrooklynVegan

BrooklynVegan presents a full stream of Old Wounds' debut album, From Where We Came Is Where We'll Rest, in stores today via Glory Kid Ltd.

Through 12 songs of tooth-gnashing metallic hardcore, From Where We Came... rocks with an energy reminiscent of bands like Turmoil, Buried Alive, and Indecision. The album was recorded by Kevin Bernsten at Developing Nations (Pulling Teeth, Full of Hell) and mastered by Dan Randall at Mammoth Sound (Magrudergrind, Toxic Holocaust). A recent review on Pitchfork describes the music as "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".

Old Wounds embark on an extensive US tour this week, teaming up with Ringworm, Full of Hell, Vices, and more.
