Press statement

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania-based metallic hardcore group Jesus Piece present their raging debut album, Only Self, confirmed for release on the 24th of August through Southern Lord.

Jesus Piece have left craters in their path over recent years, quickly developing a reputation as one of the heaviest, most uncompromising acts both on record and on the stage. With the brutal grooves of Y2K-era metallic hardcore at the core, the band also incorporates elements of noise, ominous tones, and haunting atmospheres into their dynamic songwriting. With crushing, modern, metallic production, Jesus Piece exist alongside the scene’s darkest and heaviest acts like Harm’s Way, Vein, Trail Of Lies, labelmates Xibalba, and more. Their music thematically addresses issues of personal struggle and loss, racism, police brutality, and other social and political injustice, and the band continue to work tirelessly to play to everyone they can.
 
Only Self was recorded in Chicago at Bricktop Recording Studio with Andy Nelson (Weekend Nachos, Like Rats, Lord Mantis) mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege (Integrity, Nails, Full Of Hell), and completed with artwork by Dom Pabon.

Jesus Piece have played live extensively in recent years, touring alongside Darkest Hour, Comeback Kid, Burn, Knocked Loose, Terror, Vein, Year Of The Knife, and many more. Jesus Piece have announced a European summer tour, again traveling alongside Year Of The Knife from the 15th of June through to the 1st of July. The band will also make their return to This Is Hardcore in July, performing with the likes of One King Down, Ten Yard Fight, E.Town Concrete, Sick Of It All, Arkagnel, Eighteen Visions, All Out War, Merauder, Harvest, and many more.
