New York noisy hardcore punks Crushed are currently offering up a full stream of their new EP, Deep User, via Decibel. Featuring six tracks of gritty NYC hardcore, the EP will officially be self-released by the band tomorrow (April 14). Check it out after the break.
Frontman Fred Miketa tells Decibel:
“When we set out to write Deep User, the goal was pretty simple — write a fucked up hardcore record for someone who appreciates Blood For Blood as much as the Cocteau Twins. Lyrically, the EP is basically a narrative that shitty hardcore dad-types living in NYC may have experienced at one time or another: coming to terms with getting old and dying soon (and it not mattering), struggling with annoying shit like drinking and taking drugs too much, hating Narcs and Narc culture and trying to be better despite knowing we’re all worm food. Deep User, for me at least, channels the spirit of hardcore as it was presented to me so many years ago — doing something unique, in my own voice, that acts as an ‘outlet’ for the horseshit we face every day. Maybe it’s emo or cliche, but hopefully there are some freaks out there that can relate and get it.”
