Dynasty has announced the release of their new album Beyond Measure. Twelve tracks of furious L.A. hardcore featuring Wu Tang Clan member Inspectah Deck, Martin Stewart of Terror, Tommy Green of Sleeping Giant, Roger Miret of Agnostic Front and Jesse Burnett of Stick To Your Guns. Dynasty has raised the bar on Beyond Measure. The album was recorded with Andrew Glover at Sound Temple Studio with band members working overtime to accomplish the end result they envisioned. Says guitarist Nick Sturz:

The recording process tested just how willing I was to put my time and energy to record a great album. I remember for about a week straight, leaving Paramount after work in peak traffic hours, picking up Ivan, driving to Andrew’s house in Rancho, tracking till midnight, and going back to Long Beach. It gave me much more of a respect for the dudes who do this for a living, and after hearing the finished product, it was all worth every bit of the stress. Dynasty has taken the sound to another level, and I’m so excited to see what the people’s reaction will be.

A Disparate Vintage

On Tigerwine's latest, 'Nothing is for You,' vocalist and lyricist Trobee departs from the band's last effort as a concept record to write about an array subjects. Notably, Trobee tackles his evolution from rigid belief system to an acceptance and understanding of other ideas: "Through touring and becoming close with those very people I was taught to be afraid of, I realized how untrue it all is."
