New Jersey-based metal / hardcore quartet, Robots & Monsters, will independently issue their new EP, "Nothing To Fear Nothing To Fight", the first week of September, while the band books shows through the Summer months in preparation of the record's release.
While the band is influenced by the music they grew up on -- Anthrax, Slayer, Nuclear Assault, and other key figureheads of the 1980's / 90's thrash metal explosion -- Robots & Monsters owns a sound that deftly combines the commanding crunch of metal with the groove, punch, and emotion of hardcore and post-hardcore, a trait which finds the band comfortably sharing bills populated with any type of aggressive music.
The follow-up to their 2015-released debut album, "Down To Ash" -- which was a "Pick of the Week" on That Metal Show and debuted at #23 on CMJ's Loud Rock chart -- the upcoming Robots & Monsters EP "Nothing To Fear Nothing To Fight" follows a concept about battling your own mind, the theme backed by high-energy metal and dosed with old-school hardcore. The seven-song storyline was recorded at Portrait Recording Studios with engineer John Ferrara, and mastered by Chris Badami, and features art by bassist Bill Bergmann.
Robots & Monsters will independently release the "Nothing To Fear Nothing To Fight" EP on CD and digital formats September 2nd; pre-orders are available via the band HERE with pre-orders via all standard digital carriers to be available in the coming days, alongside audio samples from the record and more.
