Hermosa Beach, CA’S One Square Mile Sign with Sound Speed Records; Releasing Latest EP ‘Source Of Suffering’ on Vinyl

Produced by Cameron Webb (Pennywise, Alkaline Trio, Motörhead) at Maple Sound Studios

Touring Australia In April

“One Square Mile’s ‘Source of Suffering’ comes with a narrative composed of raw, unfiltered stories, each track delving into the complex nature of human experiences.” – Idioteq

“Furious wild punk rock in the best tradition.”- Black Market Playlists

“One Square Mile is definitely a serious punk band, .. Vocalist Vanessa Kaylor has the energy of a caffeinated teenager, and the intensity of an angry tiger. It is definitely metal-rooted punk rock. Not that weak-ass ’80s hair metal stuff, but more of the Slayer school of rock.”- The Punk Site

Rising Hermosa Beach, CA punks One Square Mile have inked a deal with Southern California-based Sound Speed Records (Chaser, The Dead Krazukies, Flag On Fire).

The label has announced plans to issue their latest EP ‘Source Of Suffering’ on vinyl for the first time. Pre-orders will launch shortly. Stay tuned for more information.

Emerging from the heart of the South Bay’s vibrant and storied punk rock scene, One Square Miles’ latest offering, ‘Source of Suffering’, produced by Cameron Webb, serves as a captivating successor to their 2018 debut LP, ‘The System’. The new EP marks a bold sonic departure, while simultaneously remaining true to the region’s rich punk rock heritage.

One Square Mile was formed in Hermosa Beach, California in 2017. The band’s name originates from the city of Hermosa Beach, which covers about…wait for it: One square mile of land.

While 1SM is influenced by the many iconic punk and hardcore bands who came out of Hermosa Beach and the South Bay, their approach has been to not place any limits on their sound or style and simply write music that speaks to their lives and experiences.

The band has played over 35 shows this year alone, including a recent stint opening for The C_nts and OFF!.

1SM will be touring Australia in April 2024 with Long Beach, CA’s Hamapple. See the dates below.
