NEW ALBUM THE SIN OF HUMAN FRAILTY OUT OCTOBER 27 VIA CLOSED CASKET ACTIVITIES
TOURING THIS FALL WITH FULL OF HELL
END — guitarist Will Putney, vocalist Brendan Murphy, guitarist Gregory Thomas, bassist Jay Pepito, and drummer Matt Guglielmo — will release their second album The Sin of Human Frailty on October 27 via Closed Casket Activities. Pre-order it here.
Today, the band has shared the video for the title track. Watch it here.
“As one of the first songs written for this record, ‘The Sin of Human Frailty’ acts as natural progression from the last LP,” the band states. “It’s very grounded in the elements that compose END’s identity. The new album takes a much more varied path than previous releases, but it felt right to maintain core songs like this to keep us connected to the influences we were born from.”
END initially materialized during 2017. The group’s From the Unforgiving Arms of God EP spawned the fan favorite “Necessary Death,” and lead to a signing with label Closed Casket Activities.
Highlighted by “Covet Not” and “Absence,” the band bulldozed the senses with their 2020 full-length debut, Splinters From an Ever-Changing Face. Brooklyn Vegan hailed “Pariah” as “an absolutely filthy dose of modern metalcore,” and Kerrang! went as far as to describe their debut LP as “catharsis fed through a distortion pedal and shaped into a dense, destructive wrecking ball.” Perhaps, Invisible Oranges put it best” “These gentlemen have come together to summon a fury seldom heard on any album from the realms of hardcore, grind, and black metal…”
In 2023, the members congregated once again to write and recorded what would become this sophomore release. “Part of the goal was to do things our way,” states Putney. “We didn’t want to lean on our influences too heavily, whether it’s in terms of production, guitar tone, arrangement, or other elements. We were like, ‘Let’s just make a record that sounds like END.’ I feel like there’s more of an identity to the band than there has ever been on this record.” The final result is a unique blend of HM2 driven Grind and Metallic Hardcore cross over with moments of Industrial chaos over ten tracks. Featuring guest vocal appearances by J.R. Hayes (Pig Destroyer), Debbie Gough (Heriot), and Dylan Walker (Full of Hell), this Graphic Nature Audio recording clocks in over 30 minutes of unhinged aggression and grind. Produced and engineered by Will Putney and featuring the art of Alex Eckman-Lawn, this release pushes the complexity of END both sonically and visually. Vinyl comes packaged in a ten panel die-cut jacket, pressed on deluxe colored vinyl and with a digital download code.
END will embark on a U.S. tour with Full of Hell in the fall. All dates are below.
