It would seem that Agoraphobic Nosebleed have been making a bit of a “comeback” recently. That’s not to say that the infamous Massachusetts grind collective ever went away, but their output has been rather scarce in recent years. The band’s last releases were 2009’s Agorapocalypse full-length, a handful of split releases in 2009, 2010 and 2011, and two special Decibel Magazine flexi disc releases that were unleashed in 2011 and 2012. A roughly four-year gap between ANb releases is unheard of, but the band teased fans that they were working on something pretty huge during their silence. In 2013 the band unveiled that they were planning on releasing four new EPs in which each EP would represent the tastes and influences of each member. Building upon the hype surrounding the releases, ANb played two festivals, Maryland Deathfest and Housecore Horror Festival, in 2015. The psychotic racket makers were climbing back into the grindcore spotlight and showed, and continue to show no sign of stopping. Which brings us to 2016 and the highly-anticipated first EP in the aforementioned of EPs, Arc.
