All Else Failed set to release new EP
Philadelphia, PA All Else Failed will release their new 7" Cradles and Graves next week via War Torn Records. To coincide with its release and the band's forthcoming appearance at This Is Hardcore later this month, guitarist Patrick Shannon has sent us the following information:
"We here at All Else Failed are beyond stoked as we are only a few days away from our Summer Festivities. This Tuesday, July 22nd, is the online release of our new 7" entitled Cradles and Graves on War Torn Records. Each of the two songs ('The Tip Of My Tongue' and 'King Solomon's Curse') will be available for affordable legal download on iTunes and our Bandcamp page. "There is also a bundle sale available through our good friends at Indiemerch.com, which will include the record, download and limited edition T-shirt designed by Paul Romano, based on the artwork he provided for the record. Pre-order the bundle here by Tuesday and you will be emailed a download code to redeem through the Bandcamp page the day of release. "These songs are, no hyperbole, the two best songs we've ever written. It's sort of like, 'Why bother even trying to write anymore?' territory but we will of course soldier on because we must. All of this leads up to our appearance at Philadelphia's This Is Hardcore festival on Friday, July 25th, where we are again honored and humbled to be sharing the stage with legends in underground heavy music like Converge, Slapshot, The Explosion, Bl'ast and f*cking Turmoil (only the greatest Philly band of all time). Joe Hardcore has been a friend and supporter of AEF since your mom was taking you to see Green Day, and we can't thank him enough for letting us come to his party again, let alone putting us 2 bands before f*cking TURMOIL, holy shit. We will of course have the 7" of "Cradles and Graves" at This is Hardcore. Whatever we don't sell we be available on Indiemerch.com and that's it! No plans for a second pressing and not available anywhere else. As an added bonus for the real record nerds, we will be holding a silent auction at our table for 2 test presses of C&G. These are the only 2 not being claimed by a band member or the label, so the top 2 bids take them. Proceeds will go to Safe Harbor of West Chester. We will also be accepting donations at the table for this cause and hope you can offer your support if you can make it out. "Am If forgetting anything? Oh yeah, don't forget to check us out in this awesome documentary, which will also be available for the first time at This Is Hardcore. I checked out the premiere the other night and I must say some of the older footage nearly brought a tear. What a strange ride. Let's keep it rolling!"

What a horrible statement. He sounds like half an idiot.
