Raindance Joins The Animal Style Records Roster

LA-based indie Animal Style Records welcomes New England hardcore outfit Raindance to the roster. The label has announced plans to release the band’s New Blood digitally and on vinyl.

Fused together from the spoils of Have Heart, Outrage and the Miles Between, New England-based Raindance is here to take over the world, or destroy it in the process. Formed in March of 2011 and boasting a sound akin to what it must sound like to be run over by an 18-wheeler, Raindance combines frantic hardcore with bone-crushing heavy rock and roll to create a sound very much their own. Drawing influence from all the best parts of Converge, Every Time I Die, Blacklisted and Disembodied, the band’s newest release, New Blood, is a must listen for any fan of no-holds-barred heavy music.

Recorded by Jay Maas at The Getaway Group, New Blood is 6 songs of brutal intensity. Frontman Sean O’Brien’s unique vocal style ranges from eerie, layered spoken delivery to a vicious, venom-soaked roar. Clocking in at just over twenty minutes, NEW BLOOD is a perfect introduction to Raindance for new listeners, and is sure to please old fans as well.

Though still early in their career, the five-piece band, has already been hard at work. In just a year and a half of existence, they have released the "Love Under the Sun" 7” (Glory Kid records), a 7” split with Allocation (Ugly and Proud Records) and a self-released digital EP, as well as completed several tours spanning the US and Europe. Now they stand ready to deliver New Blood digitally and on vinyl via Animal Style.

Get on board or get out of the road, Raindance is coming your way.
