PrimalRite

Following a string of celebrated 7-inch releases, Primal Rite are ready to deliver a K.O. punch to the world with their debut album, Dirge of Escapism. Due out January 26 via Revelation Records, the Bay Area outfit have prepped and perfected 10 tracks of blood-curdling thrash.

Surfacing from the ashes of San Francisco bands Scalped, Yadokai and Face The Rail, Primal Rite are the shot in the arm that the hardcore scene has been yearning for. Propelled by vocalist Lucy Xavier's fiery skirmishes on personal politics, mental health, and identity, Primal Rite's thrashing dirges are galvanized by a noble purpose. No punk bravado, no machismo—just wailing guitars, nods to both Japanese and Cleveland hardcore styles, and controlled chaos that will be stirring long after the record's 30-minute runtime.

Primal Rite's debut album is poised to be one of the most crushing debuts of the coming year. With a flurry of 7-inch releases already out on Revelation Records, Grave Mistake Records, and Warthog Speak Records plus a cassette on Pop Wig Records, Primal Rite is ready to top both their contemporaries and themselves.

Dirge of Escapism track listing:

01. Chapter Zero
02. Akumajo (Blood)
03. Antivenom
04. Interference 
05. Demon
06. Sensory Link to Pain
07. Bu Zhi Chun
08. Persona 
09. Ecstatic Agony
10. Immutable Law
