Hello all.

Although we're gearing up for the release of the Misguided CD reissue, we had another one sneak in there beforehand. This one's not a reissue, but a scorching over-before-you-know-it 7" by Battletorn out of New York City. List in at www.myspace.com/battletorn for some samples include some 7" material. We're accepting pre-orders for this now www.matwrecords.com/catalog.html ; be quick and get some limited white wax. Release date on this one is April 14, but all we've got to do is fold the inserts:

MW0701 Battletorn- Burn Fast 7" (APRIL 14th release date)
Battletorn erupted onto the NYC music scene with a bash 'n crash hardcore sound and a take-no-prisoners attitude. Although they started as a guitar/ drums/ vocals 3 piece, and recently slimmed down to a two piece attack, they make the most of their minimalist line-up with a full on wall of noise sound. They've got a classic, ragged hardcore sound, Battletorn will bring their one-two punch of a live show anywhere-- hardcore shows, metal shows, rock shows, and even hipster-indie shows, leaving many an audience member with dropped jaws at the near riotous response they often get. This 7" follows up a recent LP on Troubleman Records.
