Strong Intention ready Razorblade Express, tour (2012)

Maryland’s Strong Intention are getting ready to release their Razorblade Express EP via Patac Records on June 1.   Since the mid-‘90s Strong Intention have been punishing the underground with their own blend of New York-influenced hardcore breakdowns and blistering grindcore. Their unique sound has allowed them the longevity to play out and tour with such undisputed acts as Cripple Bastards, Disfear, Phobia, Extreme Noise Terror, Rotten Sound, D.R.I., Lock-Up and Misery Index, among others over their extensive career.
The six-track EP features bass work by Cattle Decapitation’s Derek Engemann as well as a guest appearance by Eyehategod frontman Mike IX Williams on the title track and “3rd Space Gorilla Generator.” The first pressing is limited to just 500 copies.
In conjunction with the release, Strong Intention will tour with Phobia. The East Coast Filth Tour 2012 will commence June 3 in Detroit. Check tour dates below. The band will be joined by Misery Index/Pig Destroyer drummer Adam Jarvis for the short stretch of dates:
