Wilkes-Barre, PA may not have the near mythical historical appeal of New York or Boston when it comes to hardcore but over the last few years it has produced quite a few bands that have shaken up the hardcore landscape and made a mark. Bad Seed are one of those bands although it seems like they were never even supposed to be a real band. How does that work? Well - when you have a bunch of young men in an up and coming poppunk band (in this case that would be Title Fight) that feel the need to express the harder, darker side of their personalities and their love for classic metallic New York hardcore bands like Merauder (the demo - definitely), early Biohazard and The Icemen... the end result could possibly be a band called Bad Seed and a demo that hit like a nailbomb in late '08. Four songs - all heavy as hell with a vicious bite to them. Nothing complicated or revolutionary but real hardcore done real well.
Bad Seed followed up their demo with a 7'' and a split 7'' with War Hungry on 6131 Records and the occasional live performance but never developed into a real, touring band despite the fact that their name was hot on everyone's lips.
Control Records is proud to present the one off vinyl press of this highly acclaimed demo, again a limited pressing, 100 orange wax for mailorders only, 400 black wax. Both colors are available to order in the Control webstore from tomorrow on, 19 october 2010 - 20:00 Central European Standard Time. Also a Bad Seed shirt design will be available to order and we still have a very limited amount of True Colors EPs and Control Straight Edge shirt designs left so act quick!
Next up will be a brand new EP from Stick Together.
