OLD WOUNDS video, tour

New Jersey hardcore dynamo Old Wounds has premiered a new video, "Bloodpact," via Metal Injection. The video, created by Old Wounds drummer and visual artist Brandon Gallagher, consists of new live footage of the band doing its thing.

Watch "Bloodpact" on Metal Injection, here.

The song, "Bloodpact," appears on the Wounds' latest EP, Death Projection, out now on Good Fight Music. Buyhere.

Pitchfork's premiere of the song in September 2014 came with these words: "Emotionally charged, stylistically diverse metalcore, refreshingly devoid of the sugary melodies and bone-dumb breakdowns that propagate so freely within the mainstream hardcore scene... Frontman Kevin Iavaroni is capable of the razored vocal acrobatics of vets like Converge's Jacob Bannon, but he knows when to tone down his howls for a bit of La Dispute talk-singing... It's a furious – and meticulous – piece of work."

Old Wounds embark on a tour of the US and Canada this spring, including dates with Deathwish Inc's finest, Cult Leader, as well as festival appearances alongside Sick Of It All, Biohazard, Life Of Agony, and more.
