THE PRESS RELEASE

Pressure Cracks features Jason Aalon Butler of Fever 333 / Letlive notoriety and ex-members of hardcore metal group Scars of Tomorrow. Started initially as a project amongst longtime Orange County friends Dan Bieranowski (guitar), Kevin Fifield (guitar), Bill Galvin (drums) and Ryan Doria (bass), they connected with Butler knowing he would be perfect for the role. “Jason and I go back many years to his days singing for Letlive,” says Bieranowski. “It’s awesome how something we are doing just for fun comes together naturally when the pieces perfectly fit”. The band draws influences from the era of late 90’s and early 2000’s metal/hardcore and goes straight for the throat with their relentless riffs and technical, yet punishing drumming by Galvin. While not trying to reinvent the wheel, Pressure Cracks has created an energy that will earn a nod of respect from hardcore purists, while pushing forward with ideas and vocals that are uniquely their own.”
