EARLY GRAVES To Release 'Goner' In June

San Francisco's EARLY GRAVES has completed work on its sophomore album, "Goner", for a June 22 release via Ironclad/Metal Blade Records. The follow-up to 2008's "We: The Guillotine" was recorded at Louder Studios (MELVINS, WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM, SAVIOURS) by Tim Green (THE FUCKING CHAMPS, NATION OF ULYSSES) and mastered by John Golden at Golden Mastering. The artwork was created by Nat Damm Design (MONOTONIX, AKIMBO, THE FUCKING WRATH).

"Goner" is described in a press release as "a ragged, pissed off amalgamation of heavy self-medication, year-long blackouts and all the depression of an a thousand-yard stare. . . Combining the best elements of HELLACOPTERS/TURBONEGRO rock n' roll with BLACK FLAG- and BAD BRAINS-inspired hardcore with a crushing balance of both MORBID ANGEL's heaviness and the raw intensity of power violence pioneers DROPDEAD and MASSKONTROLL, EARLY GRAVES have set the bar for complete, unhinged self destruction."

Commented vocalist Makh Daniels: "I guess the record is about alcoholism... and all the bullshit that comes with it. All the 'whys' and 'how-comes' and our stupid fucking excuses for it.

"I can't say that this will be the heaviest record you've ever heard or the best recording or the most musically precise, but I can say that, at least, it's fucking honest."
