Philadelphia hardcore collective Jesus Piece are on tour this month with Comeback Kid, their first European dates since the release of the acclaimed album Only Self (released through Southern Lord in August 2018) – dates and details below.
Only Self was one of last year’s most lauded hardcore albums and showed up on year-end lists across the board, boundaries be damned. Jesus Piece are quickly developing a reputation as one of the heaviest, most uncompromising acts both on record and on the stage. With the brutalising grooves of Disembodied, Turmoil, Harm’s Way, and labelmates Xibalba, the band incorporates elements of noise, ominous tones, and haunting atmospheres into their dynamic songwriting. With crushing, modern production, the eleven new tracks on their Only Self debut LP place Jesus Piece among the scene’s darkest and heaviest acts.
