Get Involved! (Glassjaw, FATA) EP set for release
Official press release: Get Involved!, the new band featuring ex-members of Thursday, Glassjaw and From Autumn to Ashes is thrilled to announce the release of their upcoming EP "Silk Cuts." The EP was produced by the legendary Ross Robinson (At The Drive In, The Cure) and will see its digital release March 4 on MorseCode Recordings and in March on vinyl. The band will be performing a free show at The Old Blue Last, an infamous venue owned by VICE in Shoreditch, East London on March 26th. Composed of guitarist Todd Weinstock (Glassjaw), guitarist Brian Deneeve (From Autumn To Ashes), drummer Tucker Rule (Thursday), lead vocalist Derrick Karg- Zamudio and bassist Marcus Russell Price, Get Involved!'s Post-Hardcore pedigree is the strikingly original music they've managed to craft over the past year and a half. While Get Involved!'s roots lie in aggressive music, the band were conscious to avoid relying on the formulaic trappings of Punk/Hardcore in favour of creating a progressive brand of music that transcends the genre while still implementing the stylistic hallmarks that have endeared them to fans over the years. From the catchy catharsis of "Serenity Now" to the syncopated sing-along "Paint It Gold," these four songs showcase how much each player has progressed since their previous acts and listeners who aren't familiar with Karg-Zamudio will literally be blown away by the acrobatic power of his distinctive pipes as it rises above the pummeling instrumentation. From the Snapcase-inspired post-hardcore drive of "Let Your Guard Down" to the alternately captivating and crushing nature of "Apathy," this EP showcases the various sides of Get Involved! and is precursor to what these seasoned musicians are like onstage.
