Published Mar 04, 2009Hardcore punks Paint It Black, who happen to feature Lifetime alum Dan Yemin, have announced plans to release two new seven-inch EPs on different labels in 2009. In a recent blog post, Yemin explained the decision, saying, "We've grown tired of the LP format, and thought that we'd get back to basics with what is arguably the best way to present hardcore punk music: the seven-inch EP. We'll be recording somewhere between eight and ten new songs for two seven-inch EPs to be released on different record labels this year."
The first of those two EPs will be recorded with Converge's Kurt Ballou at his legendary God City Studio in April, and will be released this June via Bridge 9 Records. Punknews.org has quoted Yemin as saying, "[This] is our fiercest shit to date. Except one song sounds like Fugazi having a three-way with Jawbreaker and Nirvana."
As previously reported, Yemin's former band will also be getting the reissue treatment from No Idea Records at some point this year.
