We here at Under The Gun are excited to introduce you to one of Florida’s best up-and-coming hardcore acts, With Increase. The group, which hails from Blood & Ink Records’ roster, are rapidly approaching the February 25 release of their debut full-length, Death is Inevitable.
While sporting a sound which echoes the influence of ’90s melodic hardcore groups like Strongarm, Overcome, and Shai Hulud, this is a record that skillfully packs breakneck riffs with purpose-filled lyrics. Take for example, “Anathema,” which hits hard, like a punch to the gut, and is exclusively available to stream following the jump.
Frontman Will Steinbrecher tell us, “‘Anathema’ is about learning how to pace myself in life, not allowing my shortcomings and failures to overcome and dictate the man I want to be.”
Death is Inevitable was mixed by Kevin Bernsten (Pianos Become the Teeth, Code Orange Kids) and mastered by Kim Rosen (La Dispute, Saints Never Surrender). For pre-orders, head to Blood & Ink Records, and be sure to “like” With Increase over Facebook for further updates from the band.
