As Friends Rust prepares new album

Seminal hardcore punk outfit As Friends Rust has been working on new music as of late, with plans to release a new album and two-song EP in the near future. Speaking with No Echo, As Friends Rust vocalist Damien Moyal had the following to say about their return:
"We've been quietly and steadily writing, demoing and working through songs, and now feel like we're sitting on some really, really good stuff. So, it's time. We fucking love this band, and since it seems like we're gonna keep playing shows, we may as well get some new music out there... We're pretty close to having the writing for a new album completed, and starting to look into recording two songs for a precursor EP within the next couple of months... We're currently shopping labels and having a few conversations, but not yet settled on who we'll be partnering up with."
When asked by No Echo to describe the new material, Moyal offered this:
"The songs are a pretty perfect blend of the raw, energetic melodic hardcore of 'Coffee Black'-era AFR and the slightly darker, gallows humor, snarlier, more polished rock 'n' roll of the band's later days from the Won LP or A Young Trophy Band EP. All of the traits that defined AFR's sound and spirit are alive and well, and I really think these songs will be fresh and new while still striking a nostalgic, familiar chord."
