Hong Kong metallic hardcore band Dagger have released their tracks from their upcoming split 7″ with Singapore sludge act HRVST. The tracks on the split 7″ include brand new songs Poison and Set Fire. Set Fire was released earlier this year in the form of a music video shot in Shenzhen (China).
The band decided to not only include these two tracks but also the songs entitled Live Your Life and a demo of their current intro.
Drummer Ivan stated:
“When we went into record these two songs for the 7″ we already had Live Your Life done for about half a year and so decided to record that as well. When it was time to release these tracks for the 7″ we decided why not just include that song in the download as well. For the new intro that we’ve been playing for a few months now, it just made sense to include that now as well even though it’s only in demo form. We have a bunch of awesome shows coming up in Beijing, Hong Kong and Bangkok so we wanted to get these songs out there.“

As for HRVST’s two tracks that are going to be on this 7″? They’re fucking PUMMELING and more than worth the wait. Until those tracks are made available, enjoy this tasty music video the band released for an old yet epic track entitled Purusha:
The 7″ is being released in conjunction with these great Asian hardcore/punk record labels:
Dangerous Goods [Singapore]
Mutilated Noise [Philippines]
Holding On Records [Thailand]
Real Deal Records [China]
Dagger’s tracks were once again mixed by Taylor Young of The Pit (Nails, Twitching Tongues, Disgrace) and mastered by Will Killingsworth at Dead Air Studios.
Dangerous Goods has hinted that we should all look out for an announcement this Friday September 14. Until then, go blast these jams and spread the word!
