trial the early years 2xlp blue pre order 1

Out now as of today, "TRIAL: The Early Years" 2x LP on Refuse Records in Europe, with a limited additional color pressing available from Revelation Records in the USA.

Widely known for their full-length record “Are These Our Lives?” TRIAL was a band who, at the time they were coming up from 1995-1998, were largely ignored and underappreciated. These were not the years of big shows and epic photographs. These were the years of five to thirty people at each show, and long drives motivated by a love of hardcore.

During the mid 1990’s, there were hundreds of bands with a message and it was easy to get lost in the sea of them all, but TRIAL was one of the few who stayed true to what they had to say. On these recordings, their earliest material leading up to the recording of their LP, TRIAL formed the foundation of what was to come.

These early songs are raw and forceful, each making a statement about an issue, cause, or emotion which the band felt was important to share on behalf of all listeners. As was true throughout their time together, TRIAL always had other people in mind, and these songs, infused with both a love of hardcore and a passion for social involvement, were their statement on behalf of those people everywhere.

This double LP features the original demo recording, a rerecorded version of those same songs from a studio recording session from the 90's, the "Through the Darkest Days" ep, the "Foundation" ep....and in a 28 page photo/flyer booklet insert - for the first time ever seen...Greg Bennick's tour journals written during the Through the Darkest Days Tour (1996) and Foundation Tour (1997) which describe day to day almost all of the shows TRIAL played and the experience of being in the band during those formative years. Also included with each copy: a download code for audio of TRIAL's live appearance on the WNYU radio show in the late 90's.
