Today we are featuring the latest release from Southern California straight edge band Urgency. The Raw Purpose EP was released in January of this year on Commitment Records, and is the second release from the band following their 2014 demo. Listen to the record below.
From Commitment Records:
Lower Central Valley straight edge band Urgency started out in 2014 and released a five song demo in December 2014, that showcased their aggressive and fast youthcrew sound. In the Summer, the five members, Cruz A. (vocals), Dane M. (bass), Jae B. and Dak F. (guitars) and Ismail R. (drums), went into the Atomic Garden studios to record five new songs with Jack Shirley, for their debut 7″ on Commitment. The band came out with even more aggressive and harder sounding songs, songs that mixed the hooks of Side By Side, the breaks of Breakdown and the fury of Infest – the EP is called ‘Raw Puprose’ for a reason. With lyrics dripping with anger and questioning fake friendships and promoting the edge, Urgency do their name justice.
Raw Purpose was recorded and engineered by Jack Shirley at The Atomic Garden in Palo Alto, California. Cover art is by Chad Lawson. The vinyl release is being handled by Commitment Records, limited to 320 copies, with 120 copies on Black vinyl and 200 on Transparent Blue.
