Kent State - Samsara preorder

The new Kent State 7" is now up for preorder from our buds over at Debt Offensive (Supercrush, No Problem, ) I'm super stoked on how this turned out and I hope you are too.

Here is what Debt Offensive had to say about it:
"Kent State, aka Nicholas Vance (Deep Sleep, Suspect) returns with two new tracks of psychedelic death pop. This is the first-ever vinyl release of new Kent State material, following up a series of sold out cassettes (compiled last year on the “Wrong Side of History” LP), and the musical growth displayed here is beyond evident. While staying true to the original roots of Kent State’s “Brainbombs meets Oasis” sound, these new songs are catchier, more driving, and dare I say the best songs Vance has ever written."

Suspect - Search For Peace official video

Pre-order the new Suspect LP out 9/23 on React! Records

Check out our new video for the song Search For Peace directed by James Branscome who also did a few of the Kent State videos.

From the React! site:
"Suspect is members of Tear it Up, Deep Sleep, Find Him and Kill Him, and Stay Gold playing hardcore.  10 songs, recorded by Dan Maier.  Taking the overt Midwest HC influences on the demo from 2011 and adding elements of classic Southern California hardcore such as Uniform Choice, Suspect has produced a true hardcore ripper.  Hardcore rules.  Stay punk."
