Seattle-based Endorphins Lost announces an impending split 7” with OSK set for release in February, which will be supported by a Western US tour in March.
Endorphins Lost released their debut LP, Choose Your Way, through Six Weeks Records in November 2016, unabashedly introducing the masses to their blistering style of metallic, grinding, crust/powerviolence. The band will now stomp a fresh dose of salt into the wounds inflicted by their debut with four scathing new tracks, sharing a slab of 7” vinyl with their allies in Canadian grind/hardcore outfit OSK who add three tracks to the flipside. The Endorphins Lost tracks were recorded in March 2017 by Mike at Soundhouse Studios in Seattle, Washington, with additional vocals recorded by Dylan Ludwig at Raven Sound Studio in Prescott, Arizona, and mixed and mastered by Greg Wilkinson at Earhammer Studio in Oakland, California. The OSK tracks were recorded, mixed, and mastered by Jesse Gander at Hive Studios in Vancouver, British Columbia in the spring of 2013.

The split will see release on February 1st through a coalition of underground labels, Rotten To The Core Records, Delusions Of Terror Records, Agromosh Records, You All Die Records, and New Age Pyrate Punks Records. Watch for additional audio samples, preorder links, and more info to be issued in the coming days.

The tour poster art was drawn by Michelle Hughes.
