Fear Before the March of Flames did something absolutely amazing when they wrote and recorded “The Always Open Mouth”. It would have been very easy for them to rehash the style they had developed with their first 2 albums which had attained them a strong following. Instead, they reinvented their band and sound and did something completely new and refreshing. I don’t hesitate to mention this new album in the same sentence of legendary albums like “The Shape of Punk to Come” by Refused as it is that good. Although it might take some time for old fans to digest this new direction, anyone that spends any amount of time with this album will realize that this is the type of album a band can only dream of making, one that is sure to influence countless new bands and be a new measuring stick for all bands playing hardcore.
We are excited to be co-releasing “The Always Open Mouth” with Grey Flight Records as a very limited double LP. There will only be 1,000 copies ever made and of the 1,000 copies, 500 will have 1 yellow record, 1 red record, and the other 500 will have both records in a red yellow spatter which is called inside outside and both records will be the inverse of each other. To get what I mean, look at the black/white vinyl for the Bear Vs. Shark “Right Now” vinyl. In either case, the 2 versions of this LP will be super limited and will certainly go out of print.
