Three years in the making, Initial Records is proud to announce BLACK ON BLACK: A Tribute To BLACK FLAG. This highly anticipated tribute to BLACK FLAG features a small, hand-picked group of some of the most important and promising bands in hardcore that Initial felt embodied the spirit, ethic and sound of BLACK FLAG in current times. It was originally intended to only be a 7″ featuring OLD MAN GLOOM, AMERICAN NIGHTMARE, THE HOPE CONSPIRACY and THE NATIONAL ACROBAT. Due to an untimely break-up of THE NATIONAL ACROBAT, the search began for a band to replace them and the project quickly grew into a larger album. It features the first recorded work from COALESCE in over two years and the first recording of THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN with new vocalist, Greg Puciato.
1. AMERICAN NOTHING aka AMERICAN NIGHTMARE – “Depression“
2. ANODYNE – “Life Of Pain“
