Gut Feeling is a new hardcore band consisting of various members of older hardcore bands scattered around the North Carolina area (former members of Catharsis, Undying, Nightbear, etc). Musically these guys deviate from the previous more metal-laced endeavors and the only part that really carries over from the previous is top notch song-writing, structure and musicianship. Gut feeling does a great job bringing back anthemic hardcore in the vein of bands such as Champion, Comeback Kid, Modern Life is War, etc think fast polished hardcore punk with melodic guitar overtones, a tasteful spattering of gang vocals and sing along parts.
they recorded a 4 song EP in November 2012 (recorded by Kris Hilbert/Legitimate Business and mastered by Brad Boatright/Audiosiege) and then made it available online shortly thereafter. Headfirst! and Bitter Melody having worked together before and already looking to do another project together – briefly discussed interest in putting out this EP on vinyl. A few days later we got together with the band, and it was decided Headfirst! and Bitter Melody would co-release this EP as their first projects of 2013! With the combined artistic talents of the band and both labels involved you can expect this to be a top notch release for the start of 2013!
