We are very excited to announce the addition of two great bands to the Blood & Ink family: Comrades and With Increase!
Comrades hail from the same city we call home, Richmond, VA, and offer up great (mostly) instrumental jams while also delivering an unparalleled genuineness on and off the stage. B&I is releasing Collection: 2010-2011 as a digital anthology with selections from their previously self-released material over the past two years. The band is also currently writing for a full length to be released on B&I in early 2012.
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.
