about

Earth Crisis' chugging riffs and barked declarations served as the mouthpiece of America's vegan straight-edge movement throughout the '90s, detailing the ideas of animal and human liberation, drug-free living, and personal empowerment through hardcore music. The band is proud to announce a new 4 song 7" vinyl and CD release "THE DISCIPLINE" coming May 19, 2015 on Bullet Tooth. The EP will have two newly recorded songs from the band's pioneering debut album "Destroy The Machines", and two unreleased songs die-hard fans may recognize from unreleased demos from the 90s.

Founding member, guitarist and song writer Scott Crouse, commented, "We think the songs on Destroy The Machines are still strong, and relevant, two decades later. We have always wanted to re-record them, and figured the 20 year anniversary of the album was a fitting occasion. Our intention isn't to erase the original versions, just offer another version we feel will offer the power and clarity the songs deserve. We also decided to record two songs we demo'd years ago because they're great and people need to hear them! "Behind The Mask" and "Time Of Strife" are timeless and we think ExC fans will love them."

Track Name: The Discipline
Straight Edge - The Discipline. The key to self liberation is abstinence from the destructive escapism of intoxication. I separate from the poison - a mindlessness I've always abhorred. Usage will only increase the pain, a truth I constantly see ignored. The pollutants that kill the body breed apathy within the mind. The substances that once brought release in the end will always confine. From drug-clouded lungs and veins motivation dissipates. Imprisoned within addiction, abuse increases until death overtakes. Enslaved by concupiscence, promiscuity leads to despair. Victims used and abandoned by liars who professed to care. Self-exiled from their insanity. Striving to attain higher levels of purity. The beauty in life is mine to know. Amidst the ruin I survive. I've got to stay free. Damage everywhere - infections at every turn. Through my refusal to partake I saved myself. Abstinence was the beginning. What's important is what's done with the freedom step by step I overcome. Alone I climb the staircase to edification.
