IN COLD BLOOD‘s first new recording in over 15 years takes shape in the form of a two-song 7″ featuring the original lineup of Bourbon Z (Vocals), Aaron Melnick (Guitar), Leon Melnick (Bass), Blaze Tishko (Guitar) and the new addition Matt Izzi (Homewrecker) on drums. Musically the band is on-point as always with massive riffs, stellar guitarwork, pissed off vocals and a reborn sense of energetic drumming unheard on their previous releases.

Recorded at the infamous MARS compound and mastered by Audiosiege, this super limited edition (666 copies) release is available in three different colors as well as a small handful of Record Release Show copies from the A389 XI Anniversary Bash. The layout must been seen to be believed with a 3-panel fold out designed by Ethan McCarthy of Primitive Man.

We also re-upped all related items so you can check out and grab other IN COLD BLOOD releases, merch and other records by such bands as Integrity, Shin To Shin and Homewrecker.

Thanks for following, we will be shipping these in a couple weeks once they land from the plant.

Spread the word and be sure to check out DECIBEL MAGAZINE at 1 PM EST to hear the new record for the first time all the way through.

And be sure to check out this live set Hate5Six filmed in Baltimore last weekend at Charm City Art Space for part of the A389 XI Anniversary Bash!!!

If you can’t make it out this weekend, you can still help us out a TON by reposting the A389 XI Bash poster and spreading the word about the shows on message boards, facebook, in person…whatever

I’d like to end on a note of extreme gratitude. Thank you ALL for supporting this endeavor…I can’t believe it’s been 11 years already!!! It’s so wild to see so many bands that started out with us go on to be the new leaders that so many people enjoy while in the same breath seeing important older bands.

That’s what it’s been about since Day One:
Turn the old onto the new and the young onto the old.
Still our M.O. 11 years later.

I’m extremely proud of the entire A389 legacy past / present and future. Every single band and every single record and every single one of you that gave A389 a moment of your time when there are so many things competing for your attention.

I’m stoked to plant and harvest the next crop of music for everyone to hear and enjoy. Until then stay with us.
Remember that Superior Alex is a God among men and TheXBeast tastes even more vibrant with age.

All the best to you all,
D/R – A389 Recordings
