Portugal's Reality Slap set to release new EP via WAR Records this fall; trailer posted
Portuguese hardcore outfit Reality Slap has signed with WAR Records, founded by Andrew Kline of Strife, for the release of their impending Limitless EP.
Coming straight out of the streets of Lisbon, Portugal, Reality Slap is ready to show world that great hardcore music exists beyond the confines of the United States. Reality Slap combine the best of old school aggressive sounds with modern groove based hardcore vibe. Their songs are full of fast riffs, heavy grooves, and they always pack a punch.
A trailer previewing Limitless has been issued; check it out RIGHT HERE.
The members of Reality Slap are no strangers to the punk and hardcore scene. Collectively, they have been touring across Europe in their previous bands before forming and hitting the touring circuit as Reality Slap in 2009. After the release of their demo and first EP in 2009, they recorded and released their first full-length album Necks & Ropes in 2012, the album featuring appearances from Justice Tripp (Trapped Under Ice, Angel Du$t) and Winston McCall (Parkway Drive).
In 2016 Reality Slap signed to WAR Records, owned by Andrew Kline of Los Angeles hardcore band, Strife. The band refined their sound and recorded their strongest material to date, Limitless, at Eyeball Studios in Portugal. Limitless bridges the gap between the old and the new, merging the enduring influence of DMIZE, Outburst, Breakdown, Cro-Mags, and Bad Brains mixed with modern bands like Turnstile, Backtrack, Down to Nothing, and Terror.
Limitless is set to be released in the Fall of 2016 on WAR Records... Prepare to get slapped by reality! An official release date, further audio previews, tour dates and more will be posted in the coming days.

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.
Nothing To Fear Nothing To Fight Track Listing:
1. King Of The World
4. Never Again
5. No One Ever Does
6. Surgery Day
7. Signing Off
The band has several shows booked throughout the state and beyond over the Summer months -- including a set at this weekend's NJ Metalfest II hosted by Bobby "Blitz" Ellsworth, a show in Brooklyn supporting All Out War in August, and more -- with more one-off shows and widespread tour dates to be added.

Michigan's I See Stars set to drop new album, Treehouse, on June 17th ahead of Warped Tour
I See Stars, the Michigan-based electronic hardcore outfit who will be featured on this year’s Vans Warped Tour, release their fifth studio album, "Treehouse", on June 17 via Sumerian Records.
“This is the most time we’ve had to create an album since 3D,” explains vocalist Devin Oliver. “We actually had time to reflect on our past, but most importantly what we want to become. Beyond the music, it felt like an evolution for us emotionally. We finally feel like the band we were meant to be. If you strip it down, it’s not just drums, guitar, bass, vocals, and minor production. The electronic aspects could be their own songs, and we aim to blend everything as seamlessly as possible.”
The band shared the first new music from the release in February, “Mobbin’ Out” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rh5p2GwLvvQ, a song that reflects that “mindful” attitude towards presentation and the idea that the electronic element of I See Stars stand on its own as well.
The 12-song album, which was recorded in Los Angeles, marks a number of first for the band. The biggest change is the band itself being pared down to four members: vocalist Devin Oliver, guitar player Brent Allen, bass player Jeff Valentine and keyboards/drummer Andrew Oliver. I See Stars also enlisted a number of producers to work on the release including Erik Ron [Panic! at the Disco, Saosin], Nick Scott [Asking Alexandria, Chunk! No, Captain Chunk!], Taylor Larson [Periphery, Veil of Maya] and David Bendeth (Bring Me The Horizon, Paramore).
