Violence To Fade

I was first introduced to Keith when he was playing bass for Alert. He is a hell of a nice guy, and when I would show up to shows by myself, he was always a friendly face that was quick to come up and talk for a bit. Once Alert dissolved, I was happy that he jumped right into another band, this time singing for Violence To Fade. They played a show in Maine a few months ago, and opened their set with the intro to the song Black Sabbath. It may have been one of the best intros I've ever seen a band do.

If I learned anything from the January Record A Day challenge on Instagram, it was that I'm not alone in my dislike of splatter colored vinyl. Seems the general rule of thumb is that all collectors hate why do labels still press this shit. 150 pressed on gross splatter vinyl.

Violence To Fade is a bit more raw when compared to the Youth Crew style of Keith's last band, Alert. They have a more of a rough New York Hardcore kind of sound. I can dig it.

200 on green vinyl.

I can't seem to place an order with Life To Live, and have it arrive in one piece. First, I got a badly warped piece of vinyl for Losin' it, then I had a package that was nearly destroyed from water damage...this time around, I only received the pink vinyl from my three record pre-order package. Thankfully Dan, was quick to admit his error, and shipped out the missing vinyl within the next week. Whew...crisis averted.

300 pressed on pink.
