“Magnitude have sneakily become one of the biggest bands in hardcore…Their songs are heavy but also bouncy, catchy and heartfelt.” – Revolver
“The North Carolina band Magnitude has a churning, epic take on hardcore. They make metallic, ’90s-style straight-edge anthems that sound vast and monumental.” – Stereogum
“Magnitude has delivered the anthemic title track, underscoring the band’s reaffirming message and whole-hearted conviction that characterizes their brand.” – Knotfest
“Magnitude were already one of the best straight edge hardcore bands in the world, and Of Days Renewed… backs that up with power and conviction.” – Distorted Sound
North Carolina’s Magnitude have released Of Days Renewed… their sophomore album, out now through Triple B Records. The straight-edge band has crafted eight passionate hardcore songs aimed for the listener to immerse in the lyrical content as much as moving in the pit. You can listen HERE and purchase on vinyl and CD through Triple B Records.
When approaching the writing process for Of Days Renewed…, the band knew they wanted to stick true to their roots while experimenting with heavier riffs. Composing the album was a collaborative effort, with the band self-producing and recording between studios and houses, and handing it over to John Howard at Warhouse Recordings in Gainesville, FL for mixing and mastering. The record has a ‘90s metallic feel to it while still packing a bounce. Crunchy, groove-driven riffs are met with vocals begging to be shouted along to. The words themselves address everything from confronting your fears to staying true to yourself, animal rights and environmentalism, and the mental toll of the Information Age.
As the record concludes with the title track, it’s an anthemic outcry of dreaming for better days and committing to oneself. The entirety of the album stands with the band’s mission of channeling aggressive energy into positivity and one that expands from energy-packed live shows to everyday lives. With the release of Of Days Renewed…, Magnitude stands as a band with purpose set for acceleration.
Magnitude will hit the road starting October 1st with support from UK hardcore band Mourning, starting at the Triple B / DAZE / Streets Of Hate showcase in Brooklyn, NY. Full dates below.
Magnitude is Russell Bussey (vocals), Connor McAuliffe (drums), Matt Kalbaugh (guitar), Anthony Burke (guitar), and Alex Cejas (bass).
