Strike First is happy to welcome a new band to the family. Ark of the Covenant play hard hitting, undiluted hardcore, and will be releasing their debut EP with Strike First this spring.
Connecticut seems to be a breeding ground for enduring hardcore bands, and Strike First’s newest band Ark of the Covenant has come out swinging with that infamous CT brand of intensity and drive. Musically the band’s influences span the heavy genres, but the NY and Boston hardcore scenes have the greatest impact on the band’s writing as evidenced by Ark’s signature breakdown barrage and two-step beats.
Ark of the Covenant’s debut EP Separation was recorded at Silver Bullet Studio (Shai Hulud, Wrench in the Works) and will be released on Strike First Records May 10, 2011. Pre order your copy now! http://facedown.merchnow.com/products/preorders
