Massachusetts hardcore band DEFEATER announce their new self-titled album. Defeater will be released May 10th on Epitaph. This is DEFEATER’s fifth full-length release and their first in 4 years. The first new single, “Mothers’ Sons” features blistering guitars that take the song into something chaotic and beautiful.
Yet it’s been a long journey to where the band is now. Years of touring took their toll on the friends that make up the current lineup of Derek (vocals), Jake (guitar), Adam (guitar), Mike (bass) and Joe (drums). Health, substance abuse issues, and ejecting a longtime member had made a touring hiatus necessary. After a few months at home, working and decompressing, the fire to write a new record caught everyone in a major way.
The result of time off and the band’s renewed energy, DEFEATER has created their most organic batch of songs yet. And in DEAFEATER fashion, the instrumentation is complimented by a narrative approach. Archambault explores his own “Glass family” (an homage to the J.D. Salinger characters) from new perspectives.
