Hostilities – NØ COWARDS [WHITE VINYL] - New LP
– Alternative Press
“NØ COWARDS is raging, menacing, and heavy in a way that's reminiscent of late-Nineties metalcore — and it's an absolute ripper.”
- Revolver Magazine
“Hostilities' harrowing journey through human suffering and empowerment feels timeless and prescient. Their brand of thrash-centric metalcore feels old and new.”
- New Noise Magazine
Formed in 2018, Hostilities has made no reservations or concessions for either their sound or their ethos. The goal was to punish and to that, they are no stranger. Having conquered the Pacific Northwest in relatively quick fashion, the band set out to take on the rest of the world. Fresh off a California run which saw them annihilate Central and Southern California, they were set to head to the Northeast with a run culminating with a performance at This Is Hardcore 2020.
The pandemic had other plans and rather than sit back and wait, Hostilities put together what will be their heaviest release to date. With soul damaging riffs and punishing drums, the quintet has set out to tell the world exactly what they expect of it. “No Cowards,” the forth coming debut LP after freshly minting a deal with Bullet Tooth, will do just that, recognizing the band as a force to be reckoned with for years to come. True to their DIY ethos, the band wrote, tracked and produced the record utilizing only outside help from close friends.
The band is comprised of vocalist Larissa Perrin, guitarist Colton Dodd, drummer Andy Rice and bassist Jeff Neuman. Ready to flip the hardcore scene on its head and kick its teeth in, Hostilities is poised to head out on an uncharted path leaving a road of destruction and chaos in its wake.
