Featuring musicians who have also been in such bands as Landmines, The Effort, and Choke Up, Boston's The Promised End play a style of melodic hardcore that never quite goes out of style.

From a stylistic standpoint, the group brings to mind the classic eras of both Fat Wreck Chords and Epitaph Records in their hook-heavy yet aggressive songwriting. "The sound is a love letter to the band's inspirations, an homage to '80’s thrash, early American hardcore and Youth Crew," says the band.

The Promised End will be releasing their debut album, For the Buried and the Broken, next month. Today, No Echo has the lyric video for LP track "Everything Is War" to whet the appetite:

The Promised End vocalist Paul Picillo said the following about the song:

"Sisters and brothers, they're making others of the people just like you. They want you to think, everything is war. It's a distraction to keep down the poor and displaced." 

For the Buried and the Broken will be released February 2nd (digital/vinyl) via Sound Investment Records (North America) and Gunner Records (Europe). Here's the Spotify pre-save link.
