WAR Records will release the How Much Is Enough debut EP by Louisville’s MIRACLE DRUG in the coming days, the outfit founded by members of Mouthpiece, By The Grace Of God, C.R., Supertouch, and other notable hardcore/punk quartet acts. The entire record is now streaming at Noisey alongside an interview with the band, days ahead of the EP’s release this Friday.
MIRACLE DRUG prefers to live in the present, existing in the moment, channeling the experiences of the past through the energy and excitement of the future. Recorded by Will Allard (Xerxes, Whips/Chains) at his Dot Complex studio in Louisville, How Much is Enough is a six-song blast of raw, aggressive, yet melodic-tinged hardcore that should satisfy both fans of the early Revelation Records catalog and late ’80s D.C. hardcore. With a sound that spans different generations of hardcore, MIRACLE DRUG puts their own spin on a sound crafted in the ’80s by bands like Swiz and Dag Nasty, mixing it with a more chaotic and noisy brand of hardcore played by such ’90s hardcore bands as Sparkmarker, 108, Refused, and Threadbare.
