Boston Hardcore band Death Before Dishonor have released new EP, Master of None, out through their long-time label home Bridge Nine Records. The band’s first new music in four years, the EP features two tracks, “Master of None” and a cover of Dead Boys’ 1977 classic “Sonic Reducer.”
The tracks were Produced, engineered and mixed by Zeuss (Rob Zombie, Hatebreed), and recorded at Rock Valley Studio, Easthampton, MA and Planet-Z, Wilbraham, MA. The EP will be available on 7 inch vinyl through Bridge Nine.
Expanding on “Master Of None”, vocalist Bryan Harris states:
‘Master of None’ is a showcase of what we consider all the best aspects of our sound. Songs to be sung in basements and festival fields all over the world. Lyrically, it is about breaking the shackles of mental manipulation. Most people can relate to the struggle of someone in their life wielding emotions or guilt against them. With this track, we’re taking aim at those who use these tactics to maintain control, and are providing an outlet for anyone ready to fight back.
Having toured extensively throughout their career, Death Before Dishonor will head out on a European tour starting July 29th, 2023, including multiple festival appearances. In early September and October, the band will join up with Madball playing select cities in the United States and Canada.
Death Before Dishonor is Bryan Harris (vocals), Ben Kelly (guitar), Greg Chihoski (Bass) and Ben Hilton (drums).
