Tolerate Hardcore

You never know what you are going to get with Reaper Records. I have no interest in some of their stuff (what, people still listen to Terror?), while some of their other releases pepper my annual Top 10 list. With that said, I approach each Reaper release with a bit of trepidation.

I must have been in a adventurous mood when Reaper put up the pre-orders for a new band called Tolerate. I'd never heard of them, but I did a quick search on the band, and found a free download for their 2012 demo. Wow...I did not expect this. Tolerate remind me of bands like Disengage and Beware...they would totally fit in with the Back To Back roster. You can bet that my next move was to order both available colors for the new 7 inch.

I'm not sure how many were pressed on blue, but if Big Hoss approves, it is good enough for me too.

300 on clear with another message on the dust sleeve. What a solid record, and nice surprise for this year.
