Malfunction Fear Of Failure on LP
Recorded at GCR Recording Studios with Jay Zubricky, mixed by Taylor Young (Nails, Twitching Tongues), and mastered by Paul Leavitt (Turnstile, Darkest Hour), Fear of Failure is a harsh and uncompromising bout of metallic hardcore. The Buffalo, NY band's first proper release in three years after touring extensively with the likes of Bane, Turnstile, Backtrack, and Harm's Way shows them progressing considerably, adopting a loose and raw yet thoroughly heavy strain aggressively exorcising the demons of personal anxieties and volatile relationships. The quintet formed in 2011 and wasted little time getting music out to the world with their Locals Only demo, followed by an appearance on the Bad Meets Evil compilation. This soon led to them getting picked up by upstate hardcore standby Reaper Records, who released their Finding My Peace EP in 2012, with the band issuing a cassingle in the summer of 2013. Fear of Failure marks their first batch of new material in over two years.
