California hardcore punk rockers, Dangers, have released ‘Kiss With Spit‘, a new single from their forthcoming LP, ‘The Bend In the Break‘.
‘Kiss With Spit‘ is a heavy, frantic track that offers a taster of what to expect on their latest album which, according to Dangers, is an attempt to locate the band within the rapidly changing landscapes of both loud music and our rotten culture-at-large. “We wanted to take amore critical approach to creating new music”, said singer Alfred Brown IV. “We tried not to change our sound, but to grow it. The question, essentially, was: how far can we bend without breaking out music?”
After releasing two critically acclaimed LPs and two EPs on their own Vitriol Records, this will be their first offering through a major record label.

Over the band’s past ten years, they’ve played live in a variety of unusual places, from Adriatic beach resorts to abandoned Soviet furniture factories, touring extensively across the globe.
‘The Bend in the Break‘ features photographs made by vocalist Alfred Brown IV, many of them from quieter moments spent on tour. The fractured nature of the cover is an interpretation of the album’s title, whereby the world is bent and fractured, but still not entirely ‘broken‘. ‘The Bend in the Break‘ was recorded to tape at The Atomic Garden with producer Jack Shirley, the band’s close friend and sometimes-tour-mate.
‘The Bend in the Break‘ is released October 14 via Topshelf Records.
