The Skinny: Following well over a year of buildup and preparation, New Jersey’s Lifeless will finally unveil their punishing second full-length, Dream, via Fast Break! Records on March 31st, and the entire album is now boiling over upon the masses in its entirety via SoundCloud.

The long awaited follow up to the 2011 break out full length NLFTW, Lifeless returns from what seems like some hellish, haunted purgatory, inhabited by the demons and ghosts that hide in the often over looked shadows of our daily lives. Pulling back that curtain the band reveals their starkest and most absolute vision to date.

Grinding out a master piece of pain with cold fists and dead eyes, it’s evident that Lifeless has spent the past few years cutting their teeth to razor sharp prowess with those ghosts in the shadows, and as a result have created one of the tightest, darkest, and most interesting hardcore albums in recent memory. Recorded and produced by Len Carmichael, Dream unloads forty minutes of prime aggression suited for fans of Born From Pain, Crowbar, Hatebreed, Merauder, Cold As Life and 100 Demons.

04/18 – West Side Park – Nanticoke, PA * record release show
04/19 – TBA – New Jersey * record release show
