Bloodclot Up in Arms 1024x1024

BLOODCLOT's upcoming album, Up In Arms will be released on July 14th via Metal Blade Records.

At its purest, there is little that can match the visceral thrill and empowering spirit of hardcore. As front-man of New York City hardcore kings Cro-Mags, this is something John Joseph knows very well, and with Up In Arms, he and his BLOODCLOT compatriots deliver a furious collection that hits hard on every level. From the moment the opening title track explodes to life, it’s clear that everyone involved is having a blast and playing from the heart, and that this is no frills/no bullshit music at its most passionate. “In this band we’re doing what each of us have always done: give it our all,” John Joseph states plainly. “We work hard, and we have a lot to say. Look around the planet – people are fed up with the corrupt ruling class. They destroy the planet and kill millions for profit, and the formula for our response is simple: Anger + applied knowledge = results. Don’t just bitch. Change it.”

The band features John Joseph (Cro-Mags), Joey Castillo (ex-Queens of the Stone Age, BLAST!), Nick Oliveri (ex-Queens of the Stone Age, Dwarves) and Todd Youth (Warzone, Murphy's Law, Danzig).

John Joseph (vocals) comments: "'Up in Arms' is a call to arms for the people of America and across the globe who are sick of the lies, death and destruction of innocent people being caused by the military industrial complex who run governments and propagate unjust wars in order to fill the bank accounts of corrupt businessmen." 

Todd Youth (guitars) adds: "If you take a look at what is going on right now in the world, corrupt politicians, war, famine, destruction of the planet by the animal agriculture industry - things have got to change before it's too late. Musically I wanted to write something that gave me the feeling I had the first time that I heard Discharge, Motorhead or the Bad Brains - a relentless wall of sound that makes you think!!"
