Burning Tree Records / Rotten To The Core Records
Release: 11 August 2015
Oxnard, California-based Stop Breathing release their second LP, V, this August.
Group members are also in The Fucking Wrath, Glass & Ashes, The Missing 23rd, Young Livers and other acts, they have been pounding out their energetic skate-punk/late-‘80s hardcore since 2009.
Cranking things up another few notches with their fifth official release, in their fifth year as a band, V was recorded in two sessions; the first in 2013 right before bassist Mike Carter moved to Portland, and the second nine months later with everything but bass. They sent the songs up to Portland, where Carter would track the bass lines and backing screams, after which it was mastered by Paul Miner at Buzz Bomb Sound Labs (Death By Stereo, H20).
With a dozen new tunes in just over thirty minutes, V surges with the restless angst of early Western US heroes 7 Seconds, Poison Idea, The Descendents, and The Circle Jerks delivered in a fired-up contemporary attack fans of everything from Good Riddance and Kid Dynamite to Bane and Kill Your Idols, The cover art was created by Kane Shimek and Ruben Perez.
As a joint release between Burning Tree Records and Rotten To The Core Records, V will see official vinyl and digital release on August 11th, 2015.
With the departure of Carter to Portland and Jesse to school commitments, the band enlisted Chris Goodrich (Catholic Spit) on bass and long time friend Kile Garcia on second guitar, making their delivery all the more unstoppable. Goodrich will also release a cassette version of V through his label Bad Touch Records.
