Candy sign with Relapse Records, release new EP

Official press release: Today, Candy celebrates their signing to Relapse Records with the release of Super-Stare. The two-track 7" offers a glimpse into the critically acclaimed band's pulverizing take on the genre ahead of their highly anticipated full-length. Order the physical 7" on Relapse.com. Candy comments: "Super-Stare is agoraphobia rather than claustrophobia. The ultimate trip; the song is a journey into a testing ground in which each living thing tries every day not to be eaten. As it unravels, the listener grows oppressed by the great weight of the music around them and gradually loses confidence in orderly civilization." Super-Stare is a synthesis of where aggressive music should be. Hardcore has reached a crossroads with metal, a place where lyrical discourse and impassioned screaming is as important as the memorable riffs and pounding rhythms highlighting Candy's music.

2 songs is not an EP. Moron 2 songs can be an EP, it just depends on how long the songs are.

""Super-Stare is agoraphobia rather than claustrophobia. (...)" Anyone actually read this fa.ggotry they wrote above? None of this made any sense. Some obscure social science/philosophical drivel incoherently pounded out by some 21 year old sophomore high on mushrooms during an off day from his community college. you're not a poet nor a wiseman. Go back to sweeping the floors of JC penny because your supervisor doesn't want to hear another word uttered from your incoherent psychedelic escapades


anonymous 9/23/2019 3:23:50 PM

It's like candy. I can feel it when you walk. Even when you talk it takes over me

anonymous 9/23/2019 6:33:47 PM

Hardcore is like a pit stop along the way to learning to play your instrument. Just practice in silence. Then record music after you learn to play metal.


anonymous 9/23/2019 6:38:28 PM

anonymous 9/23/2019 7:48:15 PM

Unified right almost beat up Ace edge


fourthgradecocktease 9/23/2019 8:17:06 PM

A large majority of 7" releases only have 2 tracks, still considered an "Extended Play". Just let people be stupid, they'll never change and hopefully die young.


anonymous 9/23/2019 8:42:20 PM

Straight up dick riders. This shit sounds like Today is the day, Integrity, and Converge all took a shit in the same toilet and music oozed from the scent of the mixture of excrement, urine, and 4 inch ropes from all the jerking off.


anonymous 9/23/2019 9:20:26 PM

A 1 song or 2 song EP is fcking retarded. It's a single gays


anonymous 9/23/2019 9:31:51 PM

anonymous 9/24/2019 5:07:11 AM

Cool guy band that has been carried throughout the years by all of their cool guy friends and played every cool guy fest until finally being signed to Relapse. Congrats on not having to lift a single finger this entire time you ungrateful dorks.

anonymous 9/24/2019 6:51:07 AM

Ever notice the 10 kids per city seeing these type of bands always have the same motive to get closer and be friends with the band and the small, lame cycle continues on


anonymous 9/24/2019 6:57:05 AM

Just because a band labels or calls something a certain thing doesn't mean it automatically correct. dipshits.


anonymous 9/24/2019 7:34:44 AM

"As it unravels, the listener grows oppressed by the great weight of the music around them and gradually loses confidence in orderly civilization." Do not tell me what i felt or how i'll feel. This absolutely did not happen and i didn't even listen to it.
