MAD AT THE WORLD RECORDS TO RE-ISSUE EARLY SAND IN THE FACE RECORDINGS

 

Mad At The World Records has announced an upcoming reissue of one of New Jersey’s earliest hardcore bands…Sand In The Face. This LP compiles the very earliest recordings of Montville, New Jersey’s Sand in the Face. The demos, largely recorded at Boonton, NJ’s Mix-O-Lydian Studios, features the band’s pre-LP line-up, containing a young, pre-Chrome Crank Peter “Aaron” Wegele on bass, who also contributes extensive liner notes for the record. Note that Mix-O-Lydian is the studio that gave us the Misfits’ “Walk Among Us” not much earlier. Sand In The Face were one of the first wave of New Jersey’s hardcore bands, and contemporaries with the likes of Adrenalin OD and Bedlam. Mike Judge, the singer of late-'80s New York hardcore band Judge, attended the same high school as members of Sand In The Face and credits them with inspiring him to start his own band.  Musically, it’s disaffected suburban teenage thrash of the best variety.If you’re familiar with the likes of Buy Our Records or Mutha Records, you know the pedigree. Limited to a one-time pressing of 600 copies. Click the image above to pre-order.
