END IT - Stream Debut EP "One Way Track", 2020 East Coast Tour Dates With Outsider

Today, Baltimore upstarts END IT shared their new EP, "One Way Track", in full via a premiere with BrooklynVegan. Due out on January 17th through Flatspot Records, END IT's ferocious 4 song release combines hardcore urgency with unruly punk energy. Between their whirlwind riffs, unhinged vocals and infectious grooves it’s no wonder END IT is starting to turn heads. The band has also announced a string of East Coast tour dates with label-mates OUTSIDER. Pre-orders for the EP are available here.

END IT walks the path that their Baltimore forefathers paved. Musically influenced by Gut Instinct, Maximum Penalty, and Absolution, while also paying homage to New York's Neglect, END IT are sonically reminiscent of the golden era of that harder early 90's east coast sound and with lyrics that are unapologetically real and influenced by the likes of Neglect and Next Step Up. The quartet, which features members of Wolvesblood, Piece Keeper, and Malicious Code, is a vital reminder of a better time, a time when it wasn't about trends or industry connections; a time when the music was raw, unpolished aggression that spoke for itself.

In January of 2020, Flatspot Records will release the One Way Track EP, the long-awaited follow up to END IT’s 2017 self-titled demo. One Way Track displays a more mature and focused band, due largely to a change in perspective provided by major life changes that the band members have recently experienced, including fatherhood. However, these recent developments have not tamed the band in any way; in fact, they are more in touch with their surroundings than ever before, and express their mentality with an urgency and aggression that is sorely missing from today’s hardcore scene. “These are basically Baltimore Hooligan Anthems,” says vocalist Akil, and aptly so — the brash punk attitude of their 2017 demo is doubled down upon on One Way Track, and combined with a hardcore intensity that pushes the band’s sound closer to the extreme end of the genre. END IT are disturbing the peace of the commercial hardcore scene by providing an fast, loud, and unapologetic snapshot of the city that raised them.

The grit of END IT’s recorded material is rendered all the more palpable by their live show, which has been staged across the east and west coasts over the past two years, including diverse bills with artists such as Life of Agony, Lil Ugly Mane, Nickelus F, and Turnstile. You can catch the crew on a weekend tour at the end of January alongside Flatspot labelmates Outsider.
