Jesus Piece 

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania-based metallic hardcore outfit JESUS PIECE presents their violent debut LP, Only Self, now confirmed for release August 24th, through Southern Lord Recordings.

JESUS PIECE has left craters in their path over recent years, quickly developing a reputation as one of the heaviest, most uncompromising acts both on record and on the stage. With the brutalizing grooves of Y2K-era metallic hardcore greats like Disembodied, Turmoil, and Buried Alive at the core, the band incorporates elements of noise, ominous tones, and haunting atmospheres into their dynamic songwriting. With crushing, modern, metallic production, JESUS PIECE resides alongside the scene's darkest and heaviest acts like Harm's Way, Vein, Trail Of Lies, labelmates Xibalba, and more.

With eleven new tracks packed into a debilitating thirty-two-minute attack, Only Self was recorded in Chicago at Bricktop Recording Studio with Andy Nelson (Weekend Nachos, Like Rats, Lord Mantis) mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege (Integrity, Nails, Full Of Hell), and completed with artwork by Dom Pabon.

JESUS PIECE delivers one of the most anxiously-awaited albums of the hardcore/metal underground this year with Only Self, a record which will also prove itself as one of the year's most vicious releases. JESUS PIECE is quickly developing a reputation as one of the heaviest, most uncompromising acts both on record and on the stage.

Southern Lord will release Only Self on CD, LP, and digital formats on Friday, August 24th
 
JESUS PIECE vocalist Aaron Heard simply offers, "'Punish' is aggression."
 
With the "Neuroprison" release, JESUS PIECE vocalist Aaron Heard discloses, "To be locked in a Neuroprison is to spend most of the day lost in your head while the world keeps turning around you".
 
"Curse Of The Serpent' is an ode to the grudges that everyone holds. It's a song about long lasting pain sitting in the back of your mind. The kind that just doesn't know how to fuck off. We chose this song first because it's a great introduction to the energy of this record but doesn't define the overall sound. This is a great bridge of growth between old and new."
