Take the Pain out with Hardcore: RESERVING DIRTNAPS Another Disaster EP

Errick Easterday

We’ve always covered music inspired by the shadow side of humanity, but these days there’s a poignancy to releases like the new EP from Memphis metallic hardcore band RESERVING DIRTNAPS. How many disasters can we survive in one lifetime, in one year? I guess it depends on the perspective you take – do you look around you and feel like you’re being victimized, or do you dig deep and find the inner warrior who’s presence makes all of us kin? That’s what RESERVING DIRTNAPS wants us to remember – we all feel pain, we also all have the power to ease our own and each others’ pain. Another Disaster comes out on 7” vinyl and digital platforms this Friday, August 21st – pre-order it via the WAR Records webshop HERE, Bandcamp HERE, and iTunes HERE. Today we’re stoked to be sharing this relentless beast with you in full – like the band says, take the pain out:

As we live through this world sometimes all the things life brings seem too much to bear. Whether it’s depression, anxiety, or trauma it can leave us all a little broken and cagey on the inside. All of the songs you are about to blast from “Another Disaster” were written and recorded before 2020 but the current climate only amplifies the lyrics and music to me even more. As negative and horrifying as this all can be we gotta keep our heads up and do what we can while we still have time. The simple purpose of Reserving Dirtnaps is to take all of the tension and frustration and condense it down to its leanest most savage form. So here are four tracks to take the pain out. MEMPHIS STYLE.
