delside (2019/QUALITY CONTROL)

POST-HARDCORE. STAGES IN FAITH have been carefully crafting a post-hardcore sound in London since 2017. Stylistically rare masterclass of melody and restraint from STAGES IN FAITH on their debut LP. This band inhabits the moments of departure and reflection that seems to have affected so many of the bands that worked on pulling hardcore out of the cataclysmic drilling directness of the explosion of punk, moving the formulaic into calculated musicianship and off centred splashes of colour and emotion. Sounding like a too hot high school summer under the umbrella of GOVERNMENT ISSUE, AMERICAN STANDARD, QUICKSAND, a rumour of Southern California hardcore, and a whiff of early pop-punk. Colored vinyl includes a digital download card.
