Cointoss Records is proud to announce our newest EP, Angels and Addicts, from PA hardcore legends Edgewise. This blistering release, engineered and produced by Fred Mascherino (Taking Back Sunday), combines an old school hardcore sound with relentless, grinding metal. Edgewise’s first release after a 20 year hiatus, Angels and Addicts is well worth the wait.
The band’s current lineup features longtime Edgewise members Al Spina on vocals, Vince Spina on guitar, and Matt Tincani on bass, along with veterans Jess Goldey (My Turn to Win) on guitar and Kevin Ruggeri (Ten Foot Pole) on drums. After successfully testing their new lineup in Philly hardcore shows featuring the likes of Slapshot and Wisdom in Chains, Edgewise combined forces with seasoned producer Fred Mascherino to generate this four song EP.
In a recent interview with In Effect Hardcore, Edgewise describes Angels and Addicts as a fusion of influences, drawing heavily from the late 80s – early 90s New York hardcore bands of their youth. But with lineup additions Jess Goldey and Kevin Ruggeri come new elements, including brutal, mosh inspiring breakdowns and relentless double bass on the drums. Angels and Addicts brings a unique sound that any hardcore or metal fan should check out.
A limited first pressing of Angels and Addicts will be available from Cointoss Records with 250 on green slime vinyl, 150 on black vinyl, and 100 on pink vinyl. Pre-order yours now! Angels and Addicts will be available on all major digital music services, including Spotify, iTunes and Bandcamp.
