For almost 5 years, Zegema Beach Records has worked to provide opportunities for passionate emotive and screamo hardcore bands to share their underrated efforts. We have seen a number of great exammples that the best listening experience and thought-provoking lyricism come through examples of small DIY bands and labels that have addressed important issues successfully and offered records that in many ways were revolutionary thanks to their creative re-interpretations of classic offshoots of punk music. The newest offering from Zegema Beach is a wonderful collaboration with Adorno Records, Blessedhands Records, Dead Tank Records, and Dingleberry Records and 4 amazing post hardcore / screamo bands MASSA NERA, THISISSMENOTTHINKINGOFYOU, YO SBRAITO and EF’IL. The composure of this new 4-way 12” split is built on the pillars of interesing diversification, it increases the understanding of the different facets of seemingly similar sounds, and I’m thrilled to be a part of its special presentation. Today, we’re simultaneously uncovering 4 parts of the split and our chunk happened to be 3 amazing tracks from Italain emotive post hardcore act YO SBRAITO, whose latest LP we shared with you 2 years ago. Check it out below and head over to Sophie’s Floorboard, This Noise Is Ours and (((((OPENmind/SATURATEDbrain))))) to get the rest of the record.
Pre-order via Zegema Beach Records NOW at this location. The split will be available via Zegema Beach Records, Dead Tank Records, Dingleberry Records, Adorno Records, Blessed Hands Records, and Pundonor Records!

The band commented:
We have release new songs influenced by hardcore screamo and not more emoviolence , the melodies are not so open, the melodies are more rough and bad as sound. We recorded the songs live to make a live effect, to create a feeling of immediate impact, a truer music.
Our approach to music are really simple, without digital solutions, and we tried to transmit it.
The songs have the same common thread, the songs speak of the relationship that exists between ordinary people and those who hold power and worsening injustice. The songs speak of the falsity of those in power, of those who condemn, but you react with anger and keep your opposition thinking.
