Brooklyn hardcore/mathcore outfit Tiger Flowers have released the details surrounding their upcoming EP. The EP, which follows their 2014 Dead Hymns full-length, will be titled The Vicious Heart and will be released on June 23 via Still Water Recordings. The four-track EP was recorded at Converse Rubber Tracks by Matthew Shane and at Backroom Studios by Kevin Antreassian, whom also handled all mixing and mastering duties. Frontman Jesse James Madre commented on the upcoming release:
“The idea was to loosely tell a story and treat the songs like chapters. The story takes us down a road of loss and betrayal. A warrior comes home to find everything he loved taken from him by the man he was out protecting. For this man, Hell is not the war and the death, it’s having nothing to come home to after all that.”
The EP’s artwork and track listing can be found below.
