NEWS: Jesus Piece head into the unknown…

Set to take to the stage at Outbreak Fest in Manchester over the weekend of 23-25 of May, American Hardcore outfit Jesus Piece have announced their sophomore album “…So Unknown” will drop via Century Media Records on 14th April. Co-produced and mixed by Randy LeBouef (Every Time I Die, Orthodox) and clocking in at a lean and mean 28 minutes the album comes five years are 2018’s critically acclaimed debut “Only Self” surfaced via Southern Lord. To celebrate the news, they’ve also shared the single and music video directed by Eric Richter for ‘Gates of Horn‘.

Drummer Luis Aponte: “This is as close to a Jesus Piece experience as you’re going to get without standing in front of us. The number one thing is the live performance. You can be in the studio and make that record sound insane but if you’re not giving that same energy, that same feeling when you play live, it just doesn’t matter. The making of the record was nothing short of all-consuming. It was an intense and challenging process. The record reflects a lot of confusion, but also, evolution. There was a lot of uncertainty and emotion during the pandemic– we all changed and grew so much. So if there is a single thought or concept to the record, it’s constant metamorphosis. That’s also how we operated as a band on this LP– spending a lot of time songwriting and fleshing things out as a unit, and then upping our game from there. It’s definitely a reflection of us as more mature, playing the best we’ve ever played and feeling like a real band for the first time.”
