ANCHORESS To Release 'Set Sail' Next Month

Defiled Under: Music has announced the signing of Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada's ANCHORESS. The label will release the band's debut album, "Set Sail", on May 14.

To kick off the album launch, ANCHORESS has premiered the video of their cover of ANDREW W.K.'s "Party Hard". Although the track won't be on the upcoming release, the cover will be available on the band's Bandcamp page. The clip was shot at The Rickshaw in Vancouver and features 3 INCHES OF BLOOD and a cameo by the man himself, Andrew W.K.

ANCHORESS is a four-piece hardcore punk band hailing from Vancouver whose razor-sharp wit is matched only by their frenzied yet deliberate sonic attack.

"Set Sail" features 11 killer tracks and was recorded by Jesse Karr at The Hive Creative Labs and Rain City Recorders, and mastered by Stu McKillop at Rain City Recorders.

Having graced the cover of BeatRoute magazine with their friends the Soska twins, appeared in multiple George Straight features and received regular airplay on Canadian radio, ANCHORESS are readying to take the States by storm with the release of "Set Sail".

The band has shared the stage with the likes of GALLOWS, DEVILDRIVER, TRASH TALK, CANCER BATS, GUTTERMOUTH and BAPTISTS and will tour the States this spring in support of "Set Sail". They kick off in Seattle on May 10 and will stick around the West Coast, hitting Portland, Hollywood, San Diego, Las Vegas and more before wrapping up in Boise on May 26.
