Just a couple of days after the recent track premiere, Rutland, Vermont’s explosive hardcore punks GET A GRIP are returning to our pages with their new album! IDIOTEQ has an exclusive look at its powers and you’re invited to join us for the first listen! The record is called “Endless”, and it’s due out late October through UK’s Speedowax Records (vinyl with a download card – pre-order here), Seattle’s Small Imprint (cassette tapes) and Vermont’s Fight The Fall (CD). All profits from the tape orders will be donated to the “Homeless Prevention Center of Rutland County“, a non profit organization to provide seamless services to homeless families and individuals. GET A GRIP feels very passionate about supporting this great cause. Take a part and support it!
The new offering from GET A GRIP is filled with raw energy and a passion that has been keeping their band together since 2011. After two successful EPs the band has shown that they are more than capable of delivering an entire effort worth of really quality stuff. Listen for yourself and tell us what you think in the comments below.
The band commented:
“We are happy to premiere our new record “Endless” on Idioteq. This record is a collection of songs that we wrote within the past few years. During this time all of us went through a great deal of personal endeavors, some good, some bad, but regardless, the band continued to play out constantly and write material. The cover photo is a picture of our hometown, Rutland, Vermont burning down in 1909. We thought the picture would work great with the vision of the album. We believe that the fight for a better life and a better world for all should be endless, even when knowing that pain and struggle in someways are also endless.
There is so many people to thank: Vincent Freeman of Green Mountain Records for recording, mixing and mastering the record, Rich and Speedowax records for being such a great dude and believing in us. Justin Gonyea for the photo editing and album layout. Matt Kimball and Get Stoked Records for always helping us out, CbraSnke , Gator King, Crafter, Rough Francis, Doom Service, Reverser, Loser Circle, Harvey Pekar, Be Aggressive, Polaroid Love, our friends, family and anyone who has helped us out in anyway. Thank you.
We have wasted no time and are currently working on a new batch of songs for our next release. I hope you enjoy “Endless” “
