Portland’s UNRESTRAINED (members of BACKLASH, TEN YARD FIGHT, THE DEAD UNKNOWN), have been around for more than 10 years now and it was always a pleasure to dive into their consecutive, utterly irrisisitable and powerful records. Their new Inside My Head, Black Meets Re 7” is no different when it comes to its crushing nature and represents a solid return after their 2016 appearance at the “IV” compilation from Blasphemour Records. Grab your copy of the new EP via Indecision Records and listen below.
The band’s drummer Jon Sinko commented for Noecho, who premiered the EP on April 20th:
From the set up of the drums at Audiosiege/Falcon Studios (where Poison Idea recorded Kings of Punk) I knew I was gonna be proud of this record. It’d been a while since I recorded in a proper studio. Honestly, since probably 1994 when Backlash recorded at Trax East in NJ with Steve Evetts. Derek Leisy, aka D-Wreck, our producer and engineer at Audiosiege, had done a lot of projects too since our 12″ and you could tell it was gonna be a killer sound from the first take. To me, this is my favorite record I’ve had the pleasure of playing on.
As far as the record being on Indecision, I think I speak for all of us that we are beyond stoked and for sure honored to be on the roster with bands we’ve grown up with and are friends with from Unbroken to Death By Stereo to Adamantium and tons more. Not to mention, Mandel. Dude’s a legend himself. Killer fanzine, amazing label, halfway decent photographer and downright solid dude. What more could a band ask for. And the fact that the Precious 12″ is also coming out on RSD makes it that much more special to me. I’ve known Dave for over 20 years and it’s been a very cool thing for us to work on something together. Thanks, Mandel.”
