NEW YORK IN 64: New Jersey Instrumental Hardcore Collective Surfaces; Magic Bullet Confirms Debut LP

Oct 28 2014

Outfit Features Ex/Current Members Of You And I, East Of The Wall And More

Magic Bullet Records confirms the signing of New Jersey-based instrumental/progressive hardcore collective, NEW YORK IN 64 – the act uniting past and current members of You and I, The Assistant, Capacities, East of the Wall, Postman Syndrome, Argonauts, El Drugstore, This Ship Will Sink, Black Kites and others — as the band has confirmed studio time in early November to record their debut album for the label.

After taking a fifteen-year hiatus from writing music together, Justin Hock and Thomas Schlatter — both part of the writing team behind ’90s screamo band, You And I — began laying down the framework to collaborate once again. To flesh out the outfit Schlatter and Hock recruited New Jersey musical veterans Chris Alfano and Seth Rheam, best known for their work in the progressive powerhouse East of the Wall, among many other acts, completing the lineup for NEW YORK IN 64. Completely void of vocals, the raw energy of 90′s hardcore supplied by Hock and Schlatter, mixed with the refined technical aspects of progressive metal Alfano and Rheam deliver, were like two worlds colliding, however, resulted into something that seamlessly blended the two contrary styles. While injecting the energy and enthusiasm of a basement show into a more refined musical composition, NEW YORK IN 64 attempts to harness two sides of many coins; youth and age, rawness and precision, joy and hostility.

Having already begun performing live together, NEW YORK IN 64 will enter BackroomStudios in Rockaway, New Jersey the second week of November to lay down their debut album for Magic Bullet, after which it will be set for release in early 2015. Stand by for additional postings on live actions following the trip into the studio, and watch for more info on the band’s debut recordings at the turn of the year.

For now, recent visual evidence of NEW YORK IN 64 breaking out their new jams at a very recent, energetic New Brunswick basement show has surfaced; check out a full nearly half-hour live set and more now at THIS LOCATION.

NEW YORK IN 64:
Justin Hock – guitars
Thomas Schlatter – bass
Chris Alfano – guitars
Seth Rheam – drums

More on NEW YORK IN 64 will be available soon; for all Magic Bullet Records press inquiries contact dave@earsplitcompound.com.

BLEACH EVERYTHING / VORS: Bipolar Split 7-Inch And Case Study Of Both Groups Now Available Courtesy Of Fangoria Magazine

Oct 03 2014

Screen shot 2014-10-01 at 2.06.56 PMWith the split 7″ between Richmond’s scathing punk assassins, BLEACH EVERYTHING, and Los Angeles’ solo synth creep, VORS, just under two weeks from parole via Magic Bullet Records, an exclusive exposé is now available via almighty horror sanctuary, Fangoira Magazine, with interrogations of both acts and audio evidence of the eviscerating EP. Introducing the cross-examination, Fangoria proclaims, “Waiting for that special record to come along and drive a dread-infused aural stake right dead center through your cold, black, horror-loving heart this Halloween month? Well, today is your lucky day.” It continues, noting the split is, “a chilling, schizophrenic maelstrom which in toto represents one hell of a terrifying earworm.”

Get stalked and slashed with the ravenous punkcrush of BLEACH EVERYTHING’s Black Christmas homage in “The Moaner,” and VORS’ skulking, split-personality darkwave creeper, “Mood Swinger,” at Fangoria RIGHT HERE.

Magic Bullet Records will officially slab the BLEACH EVERYTHING VORS split on black and white 7″ vinyl pressings and digitally worldwide on October 14th.

On this off-kilter joint killing spree, BLEACH EVERYTHING kicks off the festivities with “The Moaner,” a demented little number about a violent man that lives in your attic undetected. Musically, the pace is as frantic and urgent as the final sands in the proverbial hourglass. Drums are crushed, buzzsaw guitars cut deeply across the speakers, and overdriven bass pushes along the possessed and just flat-out eerie vocals in a pre-meditated murderous game of musical chairs. Featuring current members of Iron Reagan, Suppression, and former members of Jesuit and Corn On Macabre, you know full-well it’s going to be a completely twisted take on music as most people conventionally know it. VORS complements the violent carnage of BLEACH EVERYTHING via a deliberate, dead-behind-the-eyes ditty appropriately titled “Mood Swinger.” Synth-heavy and glacially paced, the track sounds like it was written from the fire escape outside of the kitchen window you’re obliviously walking around behind (towel optional). Drenched in the gritty low-budget outsider sleaze that defined many of the great VHS hits of the ’70s and ’80s, this could have easily been the soundtrack to “Maniac,” “Deranged,” “Possessed” and the like. It’s cold, it’s rainy, and it’s highly likely that VORS (aka J Bennett from Ides Of Gemini) is talking and laughing to himself while cutting the phone lines in your neighborhood. The whole bloody affair is packaged in a disturbingly meticulous and obsessive wrap from the hands and the mind of former Kink.com set-dresser STK MTN. This is the kind of record the brown paper bag was invented for.
