Menshevik Announce Debut Ep 'Ceasefire ' Out Jan 27th 2014 Plus Live Dates

Old school UK hardcore with a left wing political edge featuring members of Vanilla Pod, Capdown & Whizzwood  release debut EP.
 
Hailing from Norfolk come UK hardcore quartet Menshevik. The band formed in the summer of 2012 when guitarist Steve Pitcher (Vanilla Pod), bassist Dan Hawcroft (Whizzwood), Tim MacDonald (Capdown)and vocalist Rob Dempsey, bound by a love of old school hardcore, joined forces to take punk rock back to its rawest state. Their mutual love of youth crew heavy hitters like Gorilla Biscuits, the vitriolic snarl of Poison Idea and the call to arms of the UK's very own Imbalance proving instrumental in their attitude towards this new outfit and the songs they were creating.
 
After a year of honing their material (including a support tour with Dog Eat Dog), this August the band headed into Hundred Reasons guitarist, Larry Hibbet's - Artspace Studio in London to record their debut EP with Hell Is For Heroes - Will McGonagle at the production helm and Capdown's - Keith Minter covering mastering duties. The debut EP is due to drop on Dry Heave Records as a 7" and digital download on Jan 27th2014 and will mark the start of an exciting year for the band as they head out on the road in support of their debut supporting none other than metalcore bruisers Killswitch Engage on their Irish dates as well as a clutch of UK shows, with many more to follow.
 
Menshevik's debut EP "Ceasefire" is five tracks of punchy hardcore that is fresh, vital, politically charged and played with the power and urgency that you would expect from this pedigree line-up.
