“Silk Cuts” Track Listing:
Let Your Guard Down
Paint It Gold
Composed of guitarist Todd Weinstock (Glassjaw), guitarist Brian Deneeve (From Autumn To Ashes), drummer Tucker Rule (Thursday), lead vocalist Derrick Karg-Zamudio and bassist Marcus Russell Price, Get Involved!’s post-hardcore pedigree is the strikingly original music they’ve managed to craft over the past year and a half.
While Get Involved!’s roots lie in aggressive music, the band were conscious to avoid relying on the formulaic trappings of punk/hardcore in favor of creating a progressive brand of music that transcends the genre while still implementing the stylistic hallmarks that have endeared them to fans over the years. From the catchy catharsis of “Serenity Now” to the syncopated sing-along “Paint It Gold,” these four songs showcase how much each player has progressed since their previous acts and listeners who aren’t familiar with Karg-Zamudio will literally be blown away by the acrobatic power of his distinctive pipes as it rises above the pummeling instrumentation.
From the Snapcase-inspired post-hardcore drive of “Let Your Guard Down” to the alternately captivating and crushing nature of “Apathy,” this EP showcases the various sides of Get Involved! and is precursor to what these seasoned musicians are like onstage.
Get Involved! has released a teaser video for “Silk Cuts”. “Our bud Joey put this together on VHS. It gives fans a first taste of what this is all about.” says guitarist Todd Weinstock. The video can be viewed here: http://bit.ly/1jMqgag
The band will be performing a free show at The Old Blue Last, an infamous venue owned by VICE in Shoreditch, East London on March 26th with Zoax and Love Zombies. For more information on the show, please visit: http://www.theoldbluelast.com/
“The live show is where we give three million percent because with this type of music you can’t help but throw yourself into it or not do it at all,” Rule explains. “It feels like we’ve all been playing together much longer than we have,” Weinstock summarizes, adding that the band will be touring and working on a full-length in 2014. “It already sounds like we’ve been through a war together and we’re just getting started.”
