1 min read

Following the release of their self-titled 7″ through Atomic Action! Records in June, Maine-based hardcore outfit CORRECTIVE MEASURE continues to book new tour dates throughout Northeast North America supporting the record. The Corrective Measure 7″ is out now through Atomic Action! Records in the US, streaming in full below. In Europe, the EP is available through Refuse Records HERE. Cassette coming out soon on Broke & Infamous Records (Europe).

The upcoming batch of performances from CORRECTIVE MEASURE will see the band playing in Freedom, Maine on September 3rd, followed by a show in Windham, Maine on September 9th, supporting Cruel Hand at their record release show. The band will travel to Washington DC on September 24th supporting Stand Off at their record release show alongside Red Death and more. October will see CORRECTIVE MEASURE heading to Toronto, Ontario to take part in the monstrous Not Dead Yet Fest, which runs from the 13th through 16th, and incudes dozens of acts including Turnstile, Gloss, Power, Violent Reaction, and many more. And October 22nd will see the band playing National Edge Day in Cambridge, Massachusetts with the likes of Floorpunch, Murphy’s Law, No Tolerance, Spirit Of Youth, and several more.

CORRECTIVE MEASURE is Maine’s latest contribution to the current hardcore scene. Full of speed and fury, you won’t find any frills here – just trimmed down, straight-to-the-point hardcore in the style of late 1980s NYHC with a bit of early ’80s Boston, taking cues from an entire decade of influential hardcore bands including Agnostic Front, Youth Of Today, and Judge to name a few. The band’s self-titled 7″ drops a furious six tracks in less than six minutes, recorded in February 2016 by Ryan Abbot, and the cover art for the record handled by Brendon Simmons.
