Richmond, Va.’s Cloak/Dagger recently signed to Jade Tree Records. They’ve got a new album coming out on the label and it’s available on Jade Tree’s site.
They formed just last year and have already been touring all over the East Coast with other newer hardcore bands such as Fucked Up, Career Suicide, and Government Warning. Their influences include Black Flag and Hot Snakes. An odd combination – yes, but give it a listen!
The fun, punky guitar riffs and the vocals remind me of Hot Snakes, but it’s a lot angrier and faster. It reminds me of The Bronx, only way louder and better.
This is their first full-length album.
