The Skinny: Now just days from hitting via Closed Casket Activities, a new track has been shed from Discourse’s debut LP, Sanity Decays, with the premiere of “Time Pries” playing via SoundCloud. The second track from the LP (out January 27th through 12″ vinyl and digital formats) bears some of the most tumultuous but seamless, bellowing riffage on the entire album, raging with technical slick sense of brutality reminiscent of heroes Botch and Turmoil, with a remorseless delivery which still allows the album’s pristine production qualities to shine.

Sanity Decays’ ten vigorous tracks boast Columbia, South Carolina-based hardcore outfit Discourse’s refreshing hybrid of jagged hardcore, citing the likes of purveyors Turmoil, Indecision and Buried Alive, with a vibrant approach that breathes furious punk rock energy with enraged, modern sensibilities. Recorded with Andy Nelson (Weekend Nachos) at Bricktop Recording Studio in Chicago, and the vocals captured at The Jam Room with Jay Matheson in the band’s hometown, Sanity Decays was mixed by Nelson and mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege (Integrity, Nails, Tragedy), and bears cover art by Jesse Schaller (Skeletonwitch, Xibalba, Suburban Scum).
