Alabama Hardcore Outfit Gideon Surprise Fans With Brutal New EP

Two new songs appear to be the prelude to a new full-length album coming later this year.

Fans of Alabama hardcore outfit Gideon were surprised with a special treat today: the release of a new two-song EP, No Love / No One, out on Equal Vision Records. Both the title track and the accompanying 2 Deep serve as brutal reminders of why the southern band has earned such a loyal and intense following over the last eight years. The two songs pick up where 2017’s Cold left off, and kick up the intensity by yet another notch.

Best of all, this quick release is apparently merely to whet our palates — the band has simultaneously announced via Twitter that they have begun recording a full-length album due out later this year:

Of the EP, the band states:

For us, this EP is about getting more in touch with yourself, and taking the oftentimes difficult steps that it’s gonna take to make that happen. No Love/No One is first and foremost about letting go of people that are sucking the life out of you or killing the parts of you that make up who you are. 2 Deep is about taking the next step. Be honest with yourself, be true to yourself, and work hard to earn your happiness. If you’ve put in the work, you’re already in too deep to give up now. Take what’s yours and nothing less.”

Check out the two new punishing tracks below:

No Love / No One is now available for purchase via all music services.
