EARTH CRISIS Sign Worldwide Deal With Century Media Records;
Prepare To Enter The Studio Next Month
One of the most anticipated and talked about reunions was without a doubt the reformation of EARTH CRISIS, who embarked on a massive North American headlining trek this past spring to rave reviews. The pioneers of the hardcore, straightedge movement have now officially made the decision to carry on with the band fulltime and are proud to announce a new worldwide deal with Century Media Records.

EARTH CRISIS have crafted their most angst ridden and unrelenting offering of their already stellar career and this effort is going to serve as a much needed wake up call to the masses. The group will self produce the album and are set to begin tracking next month. The acclaimed Tue Madsen (Dark Tranquillity, The Haunted) will handle mixing and mastering duties. Feel free to visit www.myspace.com/earthcrisis to sample some older tracks.

Scott Crouse (guitar) further comments: "We are very excited to begin tracking our new record and even more excited that it will be released by Century Media. We have been working hard over the last year preparing new material and are scheduled to enter the studio in October. We will be producing this one ourselves and are extremely excited to have Tue Madsen mixing! The new songs are brutal and Century Media is the perfect label to handle them."
EARTH CRISIS' chugging riffs and barked declarations served as the mouthpiece of America's militant vegan, straight-edge movement throughout the '90s, detailing the ideas of animal and human liberation, drug-free living, and personal empowerment through hardcore song. This movement spawned activists who took the law into their own hands, burning down fur farms and freeing animals directly. Their vicious debut EP, Firestorm, was a landmark release for the hardcore scene that combined staccato, solo-free metal with barking, political, and militant vocals. The lyrics centered around the dangers of drug abuse and bringing "violence against violence" to drug dealers and those who would abuse animals: "a firestorm to purify."

Major media outlets such as CNN, CBS and MTV soon started covering EARTH CRISIS and vegan, straight-edge in general. In 1996, the band released their second full-length album, Gomorrah's Season Ends, a polished and decidedly more metallic affair that produced even more anthems that became singalong worthy staples of their live performances. This exposed the band to a whole new mainstream audience.

In 2009, EARTH CRISIS prepares to unleash a firestorm of epic proportions proving that their message is more viable than ever.

There was a band I absolutely loved called Haste that I think used to be on Century Media... They released an album called 'The Mercury Lift' and then fell off the planet. So much potential...

i cant handle this haha

firestorm is the album that more or less changed my life when i was 13

the more albums they released, the worse they got

i cant handle another album like slither...i just cant

i will always love earth crisis for helping me get into animal rights and straight edge, but unless they make another subculture anthem like firestorm, i will walk away from listening to it disappointed
