Punknews Streams New Suicide Note Album "Empty Rooms!"

huge thanks to Aubin Paul and the entire Punknews staff!

Stream it here!

Suicide Note sound an awful lot like a Cave In/Pissed Jeans lovechild raised on Black Flag and Fugazi records along with tequila body shots from the Amphetamine Reptile discography. One listen to “Black Snow” reminded me why I maintain such a throbbing veiny chubby for this kind of music. Considering apt backcatalog comparisons to acts like Converge, it seems form fitting that Kurt Ballou handled the mix on Empty Rooms, now available as a LP+CD combo and a limited edition (only 250 copies) screenprinted digipak format from Suicide Note drummer Jason Gagovski’s Hawthorne Street Records. -

A rollicking, pissed-off disc brimming with dark atmospheres and all manner of weird angles. Tempo and mood changes shred the metallic-hardcore rule-book, while Gagovski's crashing drums and Jason Golday's layers of detailed guitar work reveal the band's gift for artistry. – Alternative Press

Jesus Lizard-meets-Fugazi on this striking post-hardcore punk record. - BrooklynVegan
