LISTEN TO EXPIRE’S NEW SONG ‘FIGHTING THE SLIP’

LISTEN TO EXPIRE’S NEW SONG ‘FIGHTING THE SLIP’
Salad Days

Appears on ‘With Regret’ LP, out September 23rd.

As they prepare for the release of their final album, ‘With Regret’, on September 23rd (Bridge Nine), midwest hardcore veterans Expire have unveiled the record’s first single, ‘Fighting The Slip’. A little heavier and just as fierce as ever, on ‘With Regret’, Expire cruises across sub-two-minute juggernauts purging their feelings on damaged relationships and introspective exorcisms. ‘With Regret’ is the first Expire album recorded outside of their mainstay studio, Howl Street, having traveled up to Chicago’s Bricktop Studios with Andy Nelson. The new environment takes them out of their comfort zone and results in subtle new twists to the band’s sound, which bounces with a caustic, fraught anxiety, more memorable riffs, and focused vocals that retain all their previous bile and despair.

Expire, who formed back in 2009, have released two highly-acclaimed full-lengths (‘Pendulum Swings’, 2012 and ‘Pretty Low’, 2014) and a handful of EP’s (‘Grim Rhythm’ in 2010, ‘Suffer The Cycle’ in 2011 and ‘Sink With Me’ in 2012), and most recently released their ‘Old Songs’ compilation earlier this year. They’ve toured the globe countless times over in their seven-year career, and in support of ‘With Regret’ they’ll tour the world one last time – check out dates below.
