Yuppicide to release new EP ‘American Oblivion’
Brooklyn’s Yuppicide (so oldschool they still have a MySpace), will return this summer with its first studio effort in 14 years. An EP called ‘American Oblivion’, out September 4th via Dead City Records. The six-track EP will be available as a limited-edition CD and 12” vinyl with color booklet including lyrics, rare photos, art and more, and digitally through most online retailers.
Energized both by the warm reception of the band’s commemorative 2010 double CD, ’88-’98 Anthology, and the permanent addition of Jay “Gringo Starr” Rogan on drums, Yuppicide holds nothing back on this six-song EP.
‘American Oblivion’ was recorded by NYHC fixture, Glen Lorieo, at Manhattan’s, Night Owl Studios. The result is a raw blast of everything Yuppicide is best known for: speed, intensity, drive, sincerity and a dogged determination to carving its own path through the punk/hardcore world.
Yuppicide guitarist and founding member, Steve Karp:
Even when the band was apart, I wrote songs for Yuppicide: I’d hear Jesse’s voice or Joe’s bass. Once we started working with new drummer Jay, the reunited band got back into songwriting mode quickly and almost too easily – like we never stopped. ‘American Oblivion’ is our very best effort yet, and sums up all our hard work since forming way back in 1988.
