Defeater Abandoned Fourth album from one of our fave bands, Defeater. They play excellent forward thinking and modern hardcore. Just take a listen to Spared In Hell, it's everything you'd want in a hardcore song; short, powerful and simple yet clever enough to make it stand out . Now having found a home on Epitaph, we're excited for this album. Epitaph CD | LP
Defeater Letters Home Defeater return with their third album. We're big fans here. They're one of the best, most forward thinking modern hardcore bands around. They've played a couple of brilliant shows in Kingston and 2011's Empty Days & Sleepless Nights was one of our favourite albums so it goes without saying that this album is also a fave of ours!

Defeater Empty Days and Sleepless Nights Sometimes labels and distros supply us different LP colour variants than what was expected. If you're not after one particular variant, order "any variant LP" to speed up your order. Defeater's second full-length album, Empty Days & Sleepless Nights carries on the narrative songwriting style the band has developed about a family set in post-WWII America. Empty Days & Sleepless Nights traces back to the family setting from Travels, but focuses on the older of the two sons, with the events unfolding through the older sibling's eyes. ED&SL features fourteen tracks: ten of the heaviest and most musically intricate songs Defeater has written to date and four acoustic songs that sound a lot like Rocky Votolato and Ryan Adams.
