Published Apr 06, 2010Well, we hoped that this moment might come, that all the drooling fan boy worship Prairie punks Propagandhi placed on Toronto, ON thrashers Sacrifice in recent years would culminate in the best punk/metal split release of all time. And it looks like it just might.
In an email update sent to the band's mailing list on Monday, April 5, Propagandhi vocalist/guitarist Chris Hannah had this to say:
"There are also rumblings of us doing a split seven-inch with Canadian legends Sacrifice (see "Banger's Embrace" on Supporting Caste), so that would be unreal if it actually happened."
Okay, so that's all we've got, but that's enough for us. Like the lads in Propagandhi partaking in their pilgrimage to see the reunited thrash legends in the aforementioned song, we're stoked.
In the same message, Hannah says the band might also be playing this year's Best Friend's Day Fest in Richmond, VA in August.
In other Propagandhi news, the band recently split with Smallman Records, as that label's future is apparently up in the air, and are looking for a new home. In the meantime, they are releasing their Recovered EP, a collection of unreleased material from the band's early years, which promises to be interesting, today (April 6). It'll be available at the G7 Welcoming Committee site and on iTunes.
Sacrifice's most recent album was their incredibly good '09 comeback, the Ones I Condemn.
Thanks to Punk News for the heads up.
