2013 proved to be a great year for the Animal. We stayed super productive and had an awesome time in the process. We played a ton of local shows and had the opportunity to play in a few other states too. We ended the year on a high note by getting to play with tons of amazing bands at Pittsburgh’s Sincerity Fest and also doing something I had always wanted to do which was playing live on a radio show. We were also fortunate enough to release our debut on a 7”, a bunch of new shirts, and 2 videos this year. At the final moment of 2013 our split 7”s from Europe arrived in the mail just making us more and more excited for the future. You can hear the two tracks from this split here: MEDIA
With such a great year behind us we decided to keep the momentum and energy up so we’ve hit the ground running again with a new release all ready in the works. We’re doing a split EP featuring 2 new tracks “Time Bandits” and “Swimming in Filth”. The release will be with Buffalo, NY’s WRECKAGE (ex- Buried Alive, Despair, It Dies Today). It will be released by Head 2 Wall Records on 7” vinyl and Down For Anything records will be putting it out cassette. We’re excited to work with both labels as they’ve been doing nothing but killer releases this past year so check them out. We’ll be posting more info as it develops.
We’ve updated a ton of stuff in the webstore including 3 different color versions of the new split 7” with Germany’s ADDITIONAL TIME. A new shirt design and a new baseball T both of which came out super nice. We’ve also added a slew of HA and Erie Hardcore vinyl stickers. There’s some bundles on the store too so you can get more for less! Check it all out here: HA Webstore
