Philadelphia’s metallic hardcore pack JESUS PIECE have announced their signing to Century Media Records with a new wild single, ‘An Offering to the Night’. The track arrives with an Eric Richter-directed video in collaboration with the clothing brand Noah.
JESUS PIECE isn’t merely the sum of its parts. It’s the nexus for an explosive creative chemistry between the bands’ five founding members who have channeled their love for old school metalcore, hardcore and death metal into a sound that’s as furious as it is oblique. The band gallantly broke into the scene in 2015, turning heads for their frantic, feral live shows and grandiose, melodic songwriting which has since cemented them as standard stirrers and boundary-breakers.
“An Offering To The Night” is caustic and an exercise in tension-and-release riffage from the guitar team of David Updike and John DiStefano. Bassist Anthony Marinaro and drummer Luis Aponte (LU2K)’s groove-work is as off-kilter as it is distinct and bombastic. At the heart of it all, vocalist Aaron Heard brings the pain with blunt force mental trauma.
Jesus Piece will release a new LP next spring. In February, the band is set to embark on a North American tour with Show Me the Body, Scowl, and ZULU.
The single is a spectacular preview into Jesus Piece’s second act and a passage to something more intense and personal for the five Pennsylvania natives. “An Offering To The Night” is available today on all digital platforms via Century Media and comes alongside a raw video directed by Eric Richter which you can watch today over at Noah.
The single’s release coincides with Jesus Piece’s fashion collab with NYC based clothing brand Noah. The collection includes a pleated jean, striped rugby shirt, hoodie, skate deck, tote, and long and short sleeve tees — all featuring Jesus Piece iconography. The various items go on sale via Noah’s website and in-store on Thursday (December 8th).
