ITHACA's acclaimed debut full-length The Language of Injury received support from Pitchfork, BBC R1, Metal Hammer, Kerrang!, Revolver, Decibel magazines and more, fast becoming UK heavy music's new band of 2019.
Champions of diversity, equal representation, anti-fascism and anti-sexism, ITHACA are fast providing a vital new voice in hardcore, a voice which will be heard at Boomtown Fair and ArcTanGent festivals this summer, and decimated their sold-out album release show at London's The Old Blue Last.
Order The Language of Injury: smarturl.it/ITHACA
Formed out of a mutual love of metallic hardcore but despair at its lack of ambition, ITHACA draw influence from everything from Southern doom to 90's math rock, as well as the untethered savagery of early Poison The Well and melodious battery of Oathbreaker.
The result is crushing grooves and shrieking guitar squalls that give way to haunting melodic passages and desolate reprieves. The debut album will be the band's most ambitious and emotionally raw material to date, following from their 2015 Trespassers EP (COF Records/Soaked in Torment).
ITHACA have previously toured with Employed to Serve, Venom Prison, Renounced.
