Last month, I told you about Constant Elevation, the new hardcore project from Vinnie Caruana (The Movielife, I Am the Avalanche) and Sammy Siegler (Youth of Today, Side By Side, CIV). At the time, I chatted with both musicians about their debut track, "Fuck Runnin'," a fast-paced slice of melodic hardcore that has a lot in common with their respective discographies.
Today, Constant Elevation are back with "Fletch," another burner from the duo's forthcoming EP for Revelation Records. The song is propelled by an unrelenting rhythmic thrust and an impassioned vocal from Vinnie. The track also features a breakdown section that brings things down to a simmer, before opening up again with a moshy closing section that includes some interesting guitar interplay that cuts through nicely in the mix:
For the Constant Elevation EP recording sessions, Sammy called on Alex Barreto (Chain of Strength, Inside Out), Andrew Kline (Strife, Berthold City) and Joe Garlipp (Despair, Fadeaway), three musicians he also works with in the band World Be Free. "They did a great job, they’re great players, and helped in making the songs come to life," he said last time I chatted with the drummer.
The Constant Elevation EP will be out soon thru Revelation Records and can be pre-ordered today. CoreTex in Berlin will have an exclusive run of 150 copies Opaque Green vinyl and you can jump on that here.
If you're in NYC next month, Constant Elevation will be playing a show on Sept. 7 at Trans-Pecos on the Bushwick/Ridgewood border of Brooklyn/Queens. The bill will also feature Luxe, Worn, and Steel Cage:
