Format: 12"LP

Coming soon.
A release date and Pre-ordering information will be announced shortly.

The highly anticipated vinyl repress of "Two", the sophmore album from Cursed.

This new superior version of "Two" was manufactured using brand new pressing plates, making the release sound more monstrous than ever before. All of it presented in a gatefold jacket with revamped artwork and packaging.

This is the second in a series of singular represses of the entire Cursed full length catalog from Deathwish ("One" is now available). Cursed "Two" and "Three" albums were originally released by the defunct Goodfellow label, and are under exclusive license to Deathwish from Sonic Unyon Distribution.

A final limited box set of all three albums and a book of Cursed related material by Chris Colohan will be released later down the road via a partnership of Deathwish and Colohan's own label, High Anxiety.

Originally released in 2005, "Two" was the intense second album from Cursed. Distinctly their own animal, Cursed took the most powerful qualities of the aggressive sub-genres and turned them into something raw and explosive. Ultimately influencing and shaping the heavy music world as we know it today.

YAITW "When Life Comes To Death"
Format: LP, CD, Digital



In stores May 27th.
Pre-order now in the Deathwish Store.

YAITW (Young and in the Way) are a blackened metal/crust hybrid from the shadows of North Carolina. Over the last four years YAITW have evolved through multiple releases from vicious monster to multi-headed beast. With each offering melding a vicious metal speed and hypnotic atmospherics with a bleak hardcore/punk spirit. 

"When Life Comes To Death" is the newest album from YAITW. It is their eleven song war between the pain of living and the magnetic pull of death. Each song is as dispirited and vitriolic as the next. Embattled opener "Betrayed By Light" emerges from darkness first, setting an ominous tone with haunting buzz-saw guitars, vicious vocals, and crushing d-beat drumming. While YAITW embrace demon speed and emotional dynamics in nihilistic hymns "Be My Blood", "Take My Hand", "We Are Nothing", and more. All leading to closers "Shadow of Murder" and "Embrace Extinction", that together play as an aural eclipse of truly epic proportions.

Track Listing:
01. Betrayed By Light
02. Fuck This Life
03. Be My Blood
04. Self Inflicted
05. Loved and Unwanted
06. We Are Nothing
07. Final Dose
08. Weep In My Dust
09. Take My Hand
10. Shadow Of Murder
11. Embrace Extinction

Wovenhand "Refractory Obdurate"
Format: CD, LP, Digital



Pre-order now in the Deathwish Store.

Brought to you by a partnership of Deathwish and Glitterhouse Records, release dates are as follows:

April 25th: Glitterhouse Release Date (Europe)
April 29th: Deathwish Release Date (World)

Wovenhand is a band led by dedicated life-musician and lyricist, David Eugene Edwards. Over the last two decades, his prolific work in both Wovenhand and the legendary 16 Horsepower has influenced and inspired a generation of musicians throughout the expansive alternative music world.

Wovenhand cannot be described in traditional terms. Their sound is an organic, weavework of neo-folk, post rock, punk, old-time, and alternative sounds. All coming together as a vehicle for David's soulful expression and constant spiritual self exploration. Sometimes sad and sorrowed and at other times uplifting, Wovenhand are always unforgettable in spirit and sound.

"Refractory Obdurate" is the latest album from Wovenhand. Joining David on this album are longtime percussionist Ordy Garrison, along with musicians Chuck French and Neil Keener (Planes Mistaken For Stars, Git Some).

"Refractory Obdurate" is a moving masterwork that shows Wovenhand exploring louder roots hinted at on prior albums. As they maintain their melodious course, "Good Shepherd", "Field of Hedon", and "Hiss", stomp forth with a newly amplified punk rock heart. While "The Refractory", "Salome", and "Obdurate Obscura" each ascend epically into a multi-layered haze. Ten songs in all, "Refractory Obdurate" plays as a beautifully crafted patchwork that transcends genres and expectation; a true artistic achievement, that only Wovenhand could offer.

Track Listing:
01. Corsicana Clip
02. Masonic Youth
03. The Refractory
04. Good Shepherd
05. Salome
06. King David
07. Field of Hedon
08. Obdurate Obscura
09. Hiss
10. El-bow

Cult Leader "Nothing For Us Here"
Format: 12"EP, CDEP, Digital



Cult Leader are the next evolutionary leap forward for three-quarters of Gaza, arguably one of the best metallic bands of the last decade. After the early 2013 dissolution of the aforementioned band, remaining members Michael Mason, Casey Hansen, and Anthony Lucero were joined by bassist Sam Richards to form this brand new beast.

"Nothing For Us Here" is a complex crusher as you would expect. Brilliantly heavy, technical musicianship complimented by Anthony Lucero's newfound brutal vocal delivery (previously he played bass in Gaza). All of it coming together as an unconventional tangle of metal/hardcore/punk wreckage. Proving that even in their primordial state, Cult Leader are capable of standing as contemporaries Converge and Coalesce as new monsters of the aggressive music genre.

Track Listing:
01. God's Lonely Children
02. Flightless Birds
03. Mongrel
04. The Indoctrinator's Deathbed
05. Skin Crawler
06. Driftwood

New Lows "Abhorrent Endings"
Format: 12"EP, Digital



New Lows are one of Boston's heaviest bands, taking inspiration from legends like Ringworm, (early) Bolt Thrower, and others. Their previous release "Harvest of the Carcass" (Deathwish 2011) was highly praised by kids and critics worldwide as one of the heaviest releases of that year. A release that led to New Lows infamously touring the United States with Nails, Ringworm, and label mates Bitter End.

"Abhorrent Endings" is the latest offering from New Lows. A crude five song crusher that shows the band digging into the rubble in search of something darker and heavier than ever before. A purposefully unpolished and brilliantly flawed exercise in aural chaos that will leave you bruised yet wanting more.

Track Listing:
01. Abhorrent Endings
02. There's No Roses In The Rubble
03. Osaka Sun
04. Carving Crosses
05. Shelter Shard

Dangers "Five O'Clock Shadows At The Edge Of The Western World"
Format: 7"EP / Digital



DANGERS has existed since 2005. They have released one demo tape, one self-titled vinyl EP, and two vinyl LPs/CDs, one entitled Anger and the other entitledMessy, Isn't It? The band flails amidst the murkier Southern Californian estuaries between punk, hardcore, and rock and roll, and feel most comfortable clinging to broader genre labels like "loud" or "disgruntled." They have toured extensively both domestically and overseas, and make ample use of the DIY ethic that actively destroys the performative distinction between author and audience. 2014's Five O'Clock Shadows at the Edge of the Western World finds DANGERS stretching into new musical territory that wrestles with the band's geographic, political, and emotional malaise. This new material catches the band in a moment of exhaustion with the conventions of the scene they've germinated within, searching for a more brutal(ly honest) way of communicating the peaks and valleys they have come to inhabit.

Track Listing:
01. The Mourning Routine
02. (Santa Anas)
03. Midnight Traffic
04. Puncture Wound
05. Eureka! Moments
06. Five O’Clock Shadows At The Edge Of The Western World
