ILLUSTRATIONS Launch Pre-Order for Debut Album “In Vain” * Announce Dates at SXSW

Stream “Never Feeling” from ILLUSTRATIONS exclusively @ MetalSucks!

“This electric sander to the skull of a song is gloriously unstable; it moves from circle-pit-inciting speed to head-bobbing groove to elephants marching maliciousness, all in under three minutes. This is good shit.” – Metal Sucks

“The first few riffs in “Heaven” suggest straight-ahead metallic hardcore of the HM-2 collector’s variety. There’s a big, strutting mosh groove; the guitar and bass seethe with mids; the vocalist sounds like he might not have a tongue. But then, about halfway into the tune, one of the guitarists unexpectedly takes off into delay-pedal melody-land. Good cop/bad cop dynamics are endemic to the meeting points between metal and hardcore, but Illustrations play them more subtly than most. Wise choice.” – Invisible Oranges

“In Vain is an onslaught of caustic death metal growls, bonecrushing guitar riffs, and unrelenting percussion; all executed with exemplary punk breeziness.” – The Needle Drop

In support of their upcoming debut album, “In Vain,” out February 25th, San Antonio’s punk infused hardcore band ILLUSTRATIONS have launched pre-order for their upcoming album, available at their newly designed website, Illustrationshc.com.

In addition, the band is announcing a series of upcoming appearances around the release of “In Vain,” including a February 28th record release show in Austin, and upcoming dates at this year’s SXSW marathon (full details below).
