The Breaks - 5 Way Split
by beach buddies records
ria (TR), Piet Onthel (MY), Scenes We Have Missed (TR), Bastos (RO) and Children of Boredom (DE) unite their forces in this brand new “5 – way split”! Contributing with their most recent materials, all of the songs cruise around the dynamic spectrum of the emotive hardcore sound. The split will be co-released by Longrail Records, Missed Out Records, Mevzu Records, Beach Buddies Records, Dischi Decenti, Les Disques Rabat-joie, Khya Records and Huge Major Label. Digital release date and pre-orders is on 16th November, tapes coming soon!
The Breaks opens with ria - ‘Elimizden Alamazlar’, the Turkish screamo anthem of the year containing additional vocals by Tan from Scenes We Have Missed. Piet Onthel follows with a three song journey - accompanying the listener from a quiet state of emotions to the point where they start to express their explosive aspect. SWHM comes after with ‘The Bearers Pt II’. Written as a sequel to ‘The Bearers’ from their debut album, the passed two years between two songs signify a process of maturation while sustaining the original emotive hardcore sound. Bastos’ ‘Willows’ grows from the earth afterwards, resembling the tree that it takes its name from with its 9 minutes duration, changeful nature and wandering vocals. The last song of the split by Children of Boredom, clearing the atmosphere with a less violent emo/indie sound without losing the unsettling effect of the whole split.
