HARDCORE. Boston's most devoted and steadfast hardcore band, DEFEATER, knows what it takes to remain credible in a scene where fans demand both unapologetic, in-your-face power and intense, emotional honesty. Carrying on the narrative thread they have built across four previous albums, "abandoned" is the band's most powerful and uncompromising album to date, powered by a renewed sense of artistic ambition and a plot twist no one could have expected. Defeater has never sounded more bleak and intense. This is the 1st album where the entire band was involved from the ground up and that let DEFEATER push itself to a new level of discipline and depth. Colored (red) vinyl version includes a digital download card.

"Empty Days & Sleepless Nights" is a 14-song double LP (single CD) and the first four tracks showcase a new, acoustic side of the band that sounds a lot like Rocky Votolato and Ryan Adams. However, they return to their hardcore roots and deliver ten huge-sounding, heavy and catchy tracks to round out the album.

HARDCORE. Massachusetts-based DEFEATER is a band that plays by their own rules; they write narrative songs about fictional characters, release concept albums, mix melodic hardcore with acoustic ballads - all the while tapping into issues such as social awareness and environmental activism. DEFEATER's 3rd full-length continues the complex, comprehensive storytelling found in their prior releases through Derek Archambault's screaming and soaring vocals. "letters home" is the band's most mature effort yet, while remaining true to their genre-defying roots. Colored vinyl includes a digital download card.

From their critically acclaimed debut, "travels", this new story is set to a volatile soundtrack of hardcore fury, punk melody and metal technicality while the band explores some cleaner and bigger-sounding dynamics. "lost ground" is a musically precise and genre-bending release from this forward-thinking band.
