1 min read

Cleveland, Ohio-based hardcore unit FUCK YOU PAY ME [FYPM], led by underground hardcore icon/wrestling aficionado Tony Erba (Face Value, H100’s, Gordon Solie Mother Fuckers, 9 Shocks Terror), will release their Dumbed Down full-length via Tankcrimes next month.

Self-described as, “fast, negative, anthemic dark hardcore done correctly,” the band further elaborating, “economic desperation; the wrong color on a pregnancy test; dropping your phone into the shitter; 3:17 AM at Steve’s Hot Dogs… We sound a lot like that,” FUCK YOU PAY ME spews forth classic hardcore inspired by the likes of BGK, The Pagans, Negative Approach, and Discharge all punctuated by Erba’s signature vocals and charmingly boorish disposition. “Erba is a guy who has both studied and experienced what makes the rust belt hardcore scene the dysfunctional and chaotic thing of beauty that it is,” said Noisey of Erba. Dumbed Down was captured at Negative Space in Cleveland by John Delzoppo and mastered at Mammoth Sound in Santa Cruz, California by Dan Randall (Ghoul, Toxic Holocaust).

In celebration of the impending release, Clrvynt magazine is streaming opening title track “Dumbed Down” exclusively, alongside an interview with Erba at THIS LOCATION.

Dumbed Down will be release on March 24th, 2017 on cassette, digital, and limited edition vinyl formats. The wax edition comes in black (100) and white (400). Preorders are available at THIS LOCATION.
