Hamilton, Canada-based metallic hardcore quintet Counterparts have confirmed a September 7th release of a new EP. Called Private Room, the album will drop via New Damage Records (Canada) and Pure Noise Records (rest of world). The announcement comes with the debut of a video for new single “Monument”.

The album coincides with the upcoming fall 2018 U.S. “Private Room Tour” with Being As An Ocean.

Commenting on the new EP, Brendan Murphy said: “‘Private Room’ is a collection of B-sides from the last two records that we think deserve to see the light of day. The EP is dedicated to our love of private room karaoke and all of our friends/fans that put up with our psycho bullshit on and off stage.”
