Bushcraft, the debut LP from Vancouver’s most explosive band, BAPTISTS, is out now worldwide via Southern Lord. While the band’s initial 7” immediately turned heads scene-wide, Bushcraft is ripping them right off. Recorded with Kurt Ballou at his Godcity Studio, the album showcases the band’s creed of destruction through a blistering hybrid of punk-fueled hardcore propelled by white-knuckled snare-blasts, d-beat thunder, dissonant riff urgency and an overall relentless by-the-throat approach.
Amidst a landslide of commendations from countless mags and webzines, today Canadian national music outlet Exclaim! Magazine is streaming all of BAPTISTS’ seething Bushcraft for all to experience. Check it out HERE.
In addition to their hometown record release show February 28th, BAPTISTS are locking new gigs on their way to storm through SXSW 2013. Stay tuned for an arsenal of new dates to be announced in the coming days.
