MEEK IS MURDER pre-orders

Rising Pulse Records has launched pre-orders for the new Meek Is Murder LP, Onward/Into the Sun.

Onward/Into the Sun consists of two EPs collected onto one 12" LP: the brand new Onward EP, produced by Kevin Bernsten (Full of Hell, Magrudrgrind, Old Wounds) and mastered by Alan Douches (Converge, Mastodon), and 2012's sci-fi-themed Into the Sun Where It Falls Off the Sky EP.

The album's official release date is May 5th on Rising Pulse. Pre-order the vinyl now in a choice of three colors, here.

Noisey has described Meek Is Murder's chaos-core as a "face-ripping sonic assault of dizzying riffage and bloody-throated screamoidness... Damaged-era Black Flag in a car crash with metallic hardcore merchants Botch." The Brooklyn trio includes current and former members of Enabler and The Red Chord.

Check out a new video clip of Meek Is Murder guitarist/vocalist Mike Keller shredding through part of the band's song "Downward," here on Gear Gods.

"Face-ripping sonic assault of dizzying riffage and bloody-throated screamoidness... Damaged-era Black Flag in a car crash with metallic hardcore merchants Botch."
–Noisey

"Technical hardcore action." 
–Guitar World

"Pulverizing... sounds like technical hardcore madness performed inside a fire tornado."
–Alternative Press

"A furious head nod to the glorious days of mid-to-late '90s chaos core in the vein of superheroes like Coalesce, Botch, Jesuit, Converge..."
–Decibel

"A relentless, visceral expression of both pain and hope, [Meek Is Murder] will remind you why you ever got into extreme music in the first place."
–MetalSucks

"Riffs the size of aircraft carriers... Any of you still lamenting the loss of Botch will fall on this like a pack of hungry wolves."
–Terrorizer

"[Meek Is Murder] takes the intense fisticuffs of Lords, smashes it against Pig Destroyer's rabid proficiency and still comes across like an exorcism..."
–Exclaim
