Legendary Reno hardcore band 7 Seconds are the newest addition to the Rise Records roster. The Nevada band, fronted by one-time Youth Of Today drummer Kevin Seconds, is considered to be the originator of the West Coast youth crew sound. The band is set to release at the minimum a 7-inch and a full length.
Official press release:
Rise Records is proud to announce the signing of legendary hardcore band 7 Seconds to its family of artists.
Amazingly enough, the band still has its original 3 members from 1982: Kevin Seconds, Steve Youth and Troy Mowat, plus Bobby Adams, who has been with the band since 1986. Kevin Seconds, the singer and songwriter, had this to say about the new 7″ and forthcoming album, “we have about 20 new songs that we’ll record the best 13 songs from. This new record will be all about the energy and drive we still very much possess as a hardcore band. It’s been 9 long years since we’ve recorded a new album so there’s a great deal of urgency in them, with just the right mixture of both fast and mid-tempo tunes for people to sink their teeth into.”
There is also a plan to re-release the 7 Seconds back catalog through Rise Records, including several unreleased tracks, although nothing has been confirmed as of yet.
