Wow. I did not see this one coming at all. Legendary hardcore punk outfit, 7 Seconds, have just signed to Rise Records and announced plans to release a brand new 7-inch and full length album with the label later this year.
The band will head into the studio this Summer in Sacramento to begin the recording process. Amazingly enough, the band still has its original 3 members from 1982: Kevin Seconds, Steve Youth and Troy Mowat, plus Bobby Adams, who has been with the band since 1986. Kevin Seconds, the singer and songwriter, had this to say about the new 7” and forthcoming album,
“We have about 20 new songs that we’ll record the best 13 songs from. This new record will be all about the energy and drive we still very much possess as a hardcore band. It’s been 9 long years since we’ve recorded a new album so there’s a great deal of urgency in them, with just the right mixture of both fast and mid-tempo tunes for people to sink their teeth into.“
The next few years will will see a lot of action for 7 Seconds and Rise Records; lots of new music, tours and talks of re-releasing back catalog for a special edition vinyl box-set. More rumors include the possible recording of their first 20 songs written in 1979 in which only 3 were recorded using a hand held tape recorder.
7 Seconds released their last album, “Take It Back, Take It On, Take It Over!,” in 2005 on SideOneDummy.
