HELLBASTARD have announced that they are releasing a new EP “Sons of Bitches”, which is set for release on vinyl via PATAC Records. It will also include a re-recorded version of “We Had Evidence”, originally taken from their 1988 debut album “Heading for Internal Darkness“.
From a press release:
“Sons of Bitches” is dedicated to all those who are currently outraged by the sheer patheticness humanity throws around on a daily basis. A “Mad Max” future scenario is imminent; many heads will roll. Join Hellbastard in their deathdance on all organized forms of oppression and slavery.
The “Sons of Bitches” vinyl will be limited to 1000 copies. Pre-orders for limited white wax test pressings, woven patches and exclusive T-shirt designs are currently available. Pre-orders end November 15.
Often cited as being the band who created the “crust” wave of the 1980s, Hellbastard formed in late 1984/’85, then died a premature death in 1992. In 2012, Hellbastard are now very much back in action, tighter, more powerful and still as annoyed as they were from the off. With the scarce availability of heavy music — especially heavy music with respectable lyrics — Hellbastard bring socially aware lyrics and an unclassifiable form of punk/thrash metal music to the international stage.
