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.
* 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).

Marching Onward

After being together for a quarter of a century, they've been called Illuminati, fundamentalists, and even fascists. Now, with their first new album in seven years, 'Marching Out of Babylon,' they're honed in more than ever, a steadfast and evolved version of themselves. Andrew Voigt digs a little deeper into the Swedish band's roots, uncovers the narratives on the new release, and finds out how a little playground spat brought the band together.
