WITH INCREASE “SIGNS OF THE TIME” EP
FOR FANS OF: Defeater, Verse, Killing The Dream
OUT NOW on Blood & Ink Records
With Increase, hailing from Tampa, FL, are among a new breed actively picking up the torch of Spirit-filled hardcore.  On their debut EP, “Signs Of The Time,” they demonstrate their incredible talent for balancing a melodic hardcore intensity with something more raw and, at times, almost desperate.  The result finds the band clearly drawing influences from contemporaries, yet still creating a sound uniquely their own.  If nothing else, their debut’s four songs serve as a small taste of the awesome music sure to come.
POINTS OF INTEREST:
* With Increase toured extensively in Summer 2011 and regularly venture throughout the Southeast.  They will be doing a Winter 2011 East Coast tour alongside fellow Floridians Losin’ It.
* Release includes exclusive digital booklet, featuring lyrics and liner notes.  Photography for the booklet was shot by the band themselves, with design by The New Language (Saints Never Surrender, Ironwill, GlueHC).

If you really listen to 'Youth of the Nation,' we still have these tragedies going on. There’s a lot of searching still going on out there."
