In support of their debut album out next week (March 17th) on Atomic Action Records, Massachusetts-based hardcore super group SWEET JESUS have premiered a full stream of their new release.
After coming together in 2010, Sweet Jesus quickly released a demo that was followed by a few years of little activity. That all changed in 2014 when the band released their debut 7″, Box, on Triple B Records. With a new-found momentum the band entered Magpie Cage Recording Studio in August to record their first LP for Atomic Action Records, You Destroy Yourself.
Not afraid to wear their influences on their sleeves, “You Destroy Yourself” finds the band exploring deeper into their collective love and admiration of the 80s & 90s DC hardcore sound.
Recorded by J. Robbins (Jawbox / Burning Airlines) in Baltimore, “You Destroy Yourself” features guest appearances by Shawn Brown (Swiz / Dag Nasty / Red Hare) and Andy Norton (Praise).
Premiered at BrooklynVegan.
“Counting members of such forward-thinking hardcore acts as Have Heart, Fucking Invincible, Verse, and Soul Control amongst its ranks, Sweet Jesus‘ vivifying and powerful debut full-length You Destroy Yourself pays homage to late 80s/early 90s D.C. emotive hardcore without sliding into pure imitation.” – DECIBEL
“…10 tracks of real-deal hardcore.” – BROOKLYN VEGAN
Catch them live at in Providence, RI @ AS220 on April 10th! (Salad Days Documentary Screening w/ live performances from Sweet Jesus (feat. Shawn Brown from Swiz/Red Hare/Dag Nasty) + Big Mouth).
