Formed in January of 2017, Hong Kong metallic hardcore band Dagger have released their debut EP today! The EP contains 6 tracks of crushing 90’s-era hardcore all mixed in there with social-political lyrical content. The tracks themselves were mixed by Taylor Young at The Pit studio in California. Taylor also moonlights as drummer in Nails, guitarist in Twitching Tongues, vocalist in Disgrace, and so much more…he’s a beast. When asked his thoughts about this project, he had this to say:
“I had a great time working on the debut release from Dagger! It’s really interesting to hear international bands, and I’ve never worked with a band from China before. It sounds like they are genuine hardcore music fans and just want to play the music they like, and it doesn’t get cooler than that! RIP King Ly Chee, long live Dagger!”

Go blast this shit! We’re stoked to be backing this band hard! Also, make sure to show up to our Unite Asia Showcase to support this band as they celebrate the release of their debut EP! Info here: https://uniteasia.org/uniteasia-org-announce-first-ever-unite-asia-showcase-held-hong-kong-july-1/
