Cop Problem release 7-inch via The Compound, play shows (2014)

South Philly punk/hardcore activists, Cop Problem, are becoming an underground powerhouse, through the releasing of prime material, diehard DIY touring, and their willingness to support socio-political and environmental causes and animal rights. On their second 7-inch EP, Buried Beneath White Noise, the band’s four new tracks devastate with the dueling thunder of guitarist Randon Martin and bassist George G, packed with white-knuckled percussive rolls and torrential d-beatings from drummer Joshua Cohen (Die Choking), all topped with a searing torrent of vocals from frontwoman Deb Cohen’s disparaging delivery, raging in the vein of Cloud Rat, Oathbreaker and All Pigs Must Die, and engineered by Will Yip (Paint It Black, Circa Survive, Balance & Composure).
Having seen digital release by Cop Problem in the Fall of 2013, the physical manifestation of this beast is now upon us, as the band joins with THE COMPOUND to release a killer 7-inch version of Buried Beneath White Noise on U.S. turf, with British DIY label, Prejudice Me, handling European territories. The platters are at the plant and will be delivered in just over a week, in a deuce of color schemes. Not only will the planned black wax pressing of 300 copies exist, but an additional pressing of 200 copies of an experimental new color pattern is being put into production for a special pressing only the band and THE COMPOUND will be selling; the pressing melding a translucent dark green with Coke-bottle clear which the pressing plant has never done. Preorders for both the standard black and the “green thing” are available now via EARSPLIT DISTRO.
