Formed in 2005 with a single purpose, to bring back old-school New York hardcore. TRUTH IN NEEDLES is creating strong punk rock without forgetting the philosophy that spawned a generation of musicians. TRUTH IN NEEDLES is determined to bring the much-maligned and misused term “hardcore” back to it’s NY punk roots.
Clocking in at just over 15 minutes for 11 blistering tracks, their debut album “Hardcore Liberation Front” is a furious statement of energy and passion. Recorded and produced by hardcore legend Don Fury at his Cyclone Sound, “Hardcore Liberation Front” is full of the quick driving guitars, rhythms and tell-it-as-it-is vocals that gave birth to the entire NYHC scene.
To bring purpose to all the trials they’ve been through together, the band then released their powerful follow up album “Turning Gray Black”. Tracks such as the catchy “Postcard” and the pounding “Against The Grain” have quickly become fan favorites and mainstays in their live set.
Produced by Joey Z (Life of Agony, Carnivore) at Method of Groove Studios in Brooklyn and in true DIY spirit, independently financed, the band turns up the intensity adding new depth to their sound. With “Turning Gray Black” they expand their repetoire with tracks like “All Bets Are Off” while keeping one driving force in mind: brutality. Raw and honest with a heavier sound, their sophmore effort is poised to redefine hardcore in it’s purest form.
Keeping to a steady schedule of live performances, TRUTH IN NEEDLES has played with DRI, AGNOSTIC FRONT, LIFE Of AGONY, MADBALL and STIGMA while writing new songs for their next album. The first single from their upcoming album, “By Your Rules” was released on the “It’s What We Know” split 7” vinyl along with songs from BAD ASSETS, SIDE SWIPED and IRON CITY HOOLIGANS.
The second single, “Ever Lived” was recorded during a blizzard at Raw Recording and released on the “Pissed Off Radio: Volume 4” hardcore compilation.
