Defeater – Empty Days & Sleepless Nights / Updates

March 4, 2011

Defeater is a band that probably doesn’t even need an introduction. They are truly one of the leaders of modern hardcore in my opinion. This is their new album, due out in a week or so. On this album, the band refines their already polished sound even further. At times melodic, at times dark and brooding, this album is always intense, passionate, and intricate. To top it off, Defeater has written 4 acoustic songs to end the album with, which are all very good. The contrast of the heavy songs and acoustic songs makes for a very interesting and rewarding listen. Best hardcore album of 2011 so far? I’d say so.



Edit: At first, I thought that song 10 cut out before it was supposed to. Max has informed me that this is the way it’s supposed to be on the album. Apparently, in the context of the album’s overarching story, the speaker gets pushed into a train, so the song ends. Don’t quote me on that though.


– In label news, we finally got the Adobe Homes/Beau Navire split 7″s.  Thank you to everyone who preordered one, you’ll be seeing them very soon. You can order this split for only 5 bucks right here. If you reeeaaally want to hear the songs before you order one, you can download them here. Also, we’ve now got an exclusive мища shirt in a preorder package for the We Were Skeletons split. Check that out here. If you already have a preorder and want a shirt, email us at and we’ll make it happen. Also, we’ll be announcing some tapes in the future that we’re really excited about!
