Break The Silence Announce Vinyl Release of 2003’s Near Life Experience


Chicago’s Break The Silence (Ft. Dan Precision of 88 Fingers Louie) have announced the first ever vinyl release of their 2003 Hopeless Records debut album, Near Life Experience.

Due out November 26th on Thousand Islands Records, the pressing limited to 300 units includes redesigned artwork by ECH, comes in two different colored variants with download code including bonus track “Comfort In Cold Blood”. Additionally, a thematic skateboard deck has been announced. Pre-orders are live now.



About Break The Silence:

When former 88 Fingers Louie and Rise Against guitarist Dan Precision joined the little-known Chicago-area hardcore project All Else Fails in 2002, it set off a chain reaction that formed a whole new band. Precision came on board just as All Else Fails’ vocalist was leaving, so he and AEF members Brian Phee (guitar), Jay Gronwick (bass), and Mike Ford (drums) decided to start fresh. Renaming themselves Break the Silence, the band tapped area vocalist Dan Wintercorn and settled on a sound mixing California-style punk revivalism with melodic and hardcore elements. Break the Silence signed with Hopeless Records after a 2003 showcase at South by Southwest, and headed out on the Warped Tour the following summer. Near Life Experience appeared in February 2004, and Break the Silence supported the album with road dates throughout the rest of the year. Precision then left the band in the fall of 2005 to concentrate more fully on his production career.

(review) No Breakfast Goodbye/Ink Bomb – Split


Dutch punk rock bands No Breakfast Goodbye and Ink Bomb are in no way strangers to the pages of this webzine. They released this split record and I can safely say that this is one of the releases I was eager to listen and just couldn´t wait to come out. Each band offers three songs on this release. No Breakfast Goodbye play high energy melodic punk/skatepunk with such beautiful melodies and choruses I just enjoyed every second of their side. My personal NBG song is The Losers Club of these three presented on this record. Both bands are great, but somehow I like Ink Bomb a bit better, being a bit more raw and a bit more hardcore punk side of things yet retaining enough melody to be fantastic. My personal favorite from their side of the record is Dorothy Enters Technicolor. Nice split release indeed!
