After working for two and a half years. Indiana death core band, Perpetrators, have finally released their debut album, Fade To Ashes, comprised of blood, sweat, tears, and straight passion. I caught up with member’s Devon Scott and Izaac Daugherty to ask a few questions about their debut album and to snap some promos for the release.
The Pure Noise Records Tour brought some of the best bands hardcore has to offer right now, from young rising bands like Sanction and Year Of The Knife, to veterans Stick To Your Guns and Counterparts.

Love them or hate them, there is no denying that Knocked Loose have made quite an impact on the music scene ever since their 2014 EP Pop Culture. Only continuing to grow with Laugh Tracks in 2016, this debut led the band to become even more talked about in both a positive and negative aspect causing a major division between people who either loved this style of hardcore with its extremely unique take on vocals, its bare-bone riffs or even the lyricism overall, to those who can’t stand it. The underlying question here is: did the band cater to the nay-sayers and change their sound up for their sophomore album? Within the first 10 seconds of Belleview that’s answered with a resounding “hell no”.
I Prevail, Issues, and Justin Stone brought the heat to Old National Center in Indianapolis, IN on August 8th. The packed tour featured I Prevail still riding high off the success of their sophomore album Trauma, Issues are continuing to support their newest single “Tapping Out”, and the music scene was introduced to the talented Justin Stone. Our photographer Mya Tolliver caught all the action.
