"Old Wounds gets intense... New Jersey hardcore band Old Wounds deliver the in-your-face feel of the live experience in the brand new music video for their single 'Son of No One,' premiering exclusively on today..."
–Fuse has premiered Old Wounds' newest music video, "Son of No One." 

Watch the video, directed by Mike Petrow, here.

The song, "Son of No One," appears on Old Wounds' new album, The Suffering Spirit, released in June on Good Fight Music. 

Produced by Andreas Magnusson (The Black Dahlia Murder, Despised Icon), The Suffering Spirit has been described by AllMusic as "punishing New Jersey hardcore" and by MetalSucks as "powerhouse heaviness... a brooding Type O Negative vibe and a bit of Deftones-ish atonality." The album sees the young band build on their metallic hardcore base, adding layers of dark melody and clean vocals to create a massive new sound worthy of stadiums and basements alike.

Stream the full album, here.

Order, here.

As drummer Brandon Gallagher hints, the "Son of No One" video is the first part of a two-part series. Stay tuned for the "On Leather Wings" video, coming soon. 

Old Wounds is now in the midst of a summer-long US tour, including legs with Good Fight labelmates Axis and Of Feather and Bone.

"Punishing New Jersey hardcore... On their second album, the upcoming The Suffering Spirit, New Jersey hardcore crew Old Wounds turns up the malevolence..."

"Old Wounds are about to rip your goddamn spine out... with their impending album, The Suffering Spirit."
–Alternative Press

"Heavy, dissonant riffs, pissed-off screams... an ear-shattering tone that's super clear but not at all overproduced."


"The powerhouse heaviness you crave is certainly here in spades but this Jersey bands has a few tricks up is sleeve as well.  A brooding Type O Negative vibe and a bit of Deftones-ish atonality... Vocalist Kevin Iavaroni's heart seems to be truly bleeding on every song..."


"While the heat and aggression might grab you by the throat at first, it's the unexpected heart that will keep you coming back to The Suffering Spirit."


"New Jersey hardcore band Old Wounds turned heads with their 2013 debut, From Where We Came Is Where We'll Rest, an album that burned with the intensity of classic '90s hardcore like Deadguy and contemporary crossover geniuses Converge. Two years later, they're set to release The Suffering Spirit, which broadens the band's sound even more, employing more cleanly sung melodies and streamlined, gothic-tinged arrangements without compromising the music's intensity one iota... Easily one of the better hardcore releases of the year so far."
