Modern Life Is War Reunites for This Is Hardcore Fest, Reveal Plans for New LP
A press release confirms that the original five piece line-up of Chris Honeck, Matt Hoffman, Jeffrey Eaton, Tyler Oleson and John Eich started working together again last fall to write a new LP in guitarist Elch's basement. The record will be tracked at GodCity Studios in Salem, MA this May, and released through Deathwish Inc. at a later date.
The band have noted that they're not just revisiting their glory dates, writing: "For what it's worth, we are not approaching this as a 'reunion' but rather as a band with a new record that will be working to contribute something worthwhile."
Modern Life is War released three full-length LPs and a 7-inch during their initial run, which ran from 2002-2008. Their last full-length recording was 2007's Midnight in America. There apparently won't be any extensive touring plans, but Modern Life is War will play a few shows. The first gig back will be at this year's This Is Hardcore Fest in Philadelphia, PA, which also includes performances from Gwar, Kid Dynamite, Panic, Ceremony, Trapped Under Ice, Negative Approach, Tragedy and more. Showtime specifics have yet to drop, but the fest runs August 8-11 at Philly's Electric Factory. Check here for more details.
