Southern California hardcore punk band Virulence was originally formed in 1985, heavily influenced by Black Flag, the Melvins, & BL’AST!. After the bands demise in 1990 the members reformed under the familiar moniker: Fu Manchu. The debut and sole release by Virulence ‘If This Isn’t A Dream…’ is an exercise in slow, crushing minimalism and is a very worthy induction into the chapter of early heavy music recordings. For RSD Southern Lord present an exclusive White Vinyl version. Find more info and a participating indie record store near you at recordstoreday.com.
