Self Defense Family: Heaven Is Earth

Highly regarded New York post hardcore punksters, Self Defense Family, since their previous album, Try Me, have kept themselves busy with singles, EPs and split releases, now the time has come for a new full length, Heaven Is Earth, which is coming out on June 30th via Deathwish Inc.

Like they've done so far, SDF continue to deviate from the current breed of punk bands. Heaven Is Earth is mostly slow paced and the melancholic overtones are more strongly present than ever and though the album has been produced by four different producers in four different studios, it sounds like a whole and does not disappoint. For a band that after all these years the post hardcore term still seems quite unfair to categorize its genre-bending, effective and artistic qualities, Heaven Is Earth is a grand achievement on their growing catalog.

The album is streaming in its entirety ahead of its June 30th release via Stereogum.
