Kane Hodder Digital EP Out Now

posted by on August 21 at 15:12 PM

hodderchannels.jpgThe Kane Hodder digital-only EP I mentioned a few issues ago is finally out. The band haven’t officially released anything new since their 2005 full-length, The Pleasure to Remain So Heartless, so it’s about fuckin’ time!

I’ve been a Hodder fan for about as long as I’ve been writing for The Stranger—the band was the subject of my first lengthy music feature, we go way back. But after some shake-ups over the past couple years (member replacement, label replacement, and tour cancellations), Hodder has had a hard time regaining their footing.

It felt like forever for this EP to finally come out, and a few times it felt like it was going to never happen. But it’s finally here, and it’s a hell of an effort—a weirdo hardcore dance party that shifts speeds, moods, and genres quicker than Lindsay Lohan does sexual orientation. Vocalist Andrew Moore still croons and screams in the same breath, the guitar shreds and shimmers in the same riff. It’s everything Hodder is best at being and it sounds like they’re having a hell of a time doing it.

You can get the record for less than $5 at www.hodderrock.com.

Holy shit, I'd completely forgotten about these guys. Didn't even know they were still around. I might have to check this out when I get paid.
