The new EP from No Friends, the hardcore group fronted by Municipal Waste's Tony Foresta is called Traditional Failures. As fantastic as last year's debut on No Idea was, this is even better. It's not even nine minutes long, and it's a breath of fresh air. No thrash, no tough guy, no emo, no screamo -- this is just good, old-fashioned hardcore.
Kiss of Death Records is offering it up as a free download, as they'll be doing with pretty much every release from this point onward. The idea is that if you like the 128 Kbps MP3s offered for free, you'll buy either high-def 320 Kbps versions or a physical copy. Traditional Failures will be offered via a one-sided 12" sometime soon.
Go download it via Kiss of Death's webstore. You'll have to fill out some stuff, but it's worth the annoyance.
