2Minute Minor (Hardcore, IL) Announce Album “Snake That Ate Its Own Tail”, Stream Title Track

Chicago hardcore act 2Minute Minor have just announced that they will release a new album this summer. Titled Snake That Ate Its Own Tail, it’s the first new collection of music from the five-piece since the 2017 effort, Blood on Our Front Stoop.

According to the band’s Bandcamp page, during the process of recording the album, there was quite a serious lineup change. Therefore, the first five tracks are with the previous lineup and the end of the record is with the new. The only two consistent members are vocalist Wiley Willis and guitarist Bob Shields.


The band had the following to say about Snake That Ate Its Own Tail:

“We decided to name the Album “Snake That Ate Its Own Tail” because it’s a symbol of the eternal unity of all things, the cycle of birth and death -the infinite circle that continues, a rebirth if you will. We feel that 2Minute Minor has been reborn and find this album title quite ironic; appropriate and suitable for our reincarnation of this circle of 2Minute Minor.”

The full release will be happening on July 1 but you can listen to the record’s title track below.

EP Review: Knocked Loose – ‘Mistakes Like Fractures’

Knocked Loose, the Kentucky based hardcore outfit, come screaming out the gates once more with a new 3 track EP; Mistakes Like Fractures. Heavy, dark, and embodying all the best of beatdown hardcore, these 8 and a half minutes are well worth your time.

The title track, which opens this short 3 song package, is this dark powerhouse of a hardcore track. From the chorus screaming out “Mistakes like fractures,” to an ominous breakdown in “I followed the rabbit, I found my fucking ending,” the track is put together so well. Transitioning from this track into the next, ‘Slings and Arrows,’ their sound attacks from all sides. In the modern era of hardcore, it can seem difficult for a band to find a sound both unique and yet still very much rooted in the genre, but Knocked Loose emanate this angry, loud, and emotional presence that really does stand out.

Ending off this short piece is what I’d consider the shiniest of the 3 diamonds gathered here. ‘All My Friends’ is a fun track to listen to, but doesn’t let go of that darkness, and the breakdown could be one of the best I’ve heard in quite a while. Evoking thoughts of Code Orange with the alarm-like shrill guitar breaking in at times, this track especially is sign of great things to come for one of the premiere modern hardcore bands. Knocked Loose kick some teeth in with this EP, and I can’t wait to see what the next album has in store for us.

Mistakes Like Fractures was released on April 4th, via Pure Noise Records. You can check out the EP below.
