Received a bit of heart swelling intel (pardon the posting delay, for please) * _ *

Word on the street is:

Surrender to Release Medicine Babies

(ZerOKilled Music, Fall 2010)


Can I say I've been waiting on a NoSurrender etherdisc for several years now?

It's a sign, I know it, of further joys to come. This is one of those moments where we can thank the mainstream for the underground-angst conjuring regurge they stay spinning. It's making the Indie art natives restless. Gems are and will be born of it.

If you're in Brooklyn you can preview the album tracks @ Cameo on the 24th <3>

The disc is being described as:

“…a groping, grimy jam sticky with parking-lot feedback, Rick James-esque yelps, and fuzzy synths…It's gonna be dope.” RCRD LBL

It's all real. Pinch yourself. This dream's in the manifestation que now, we just have to wait a bit longer. Be strong.

A word from their press team:

'No stranger to the New York underground scene, No Surrender is gearing up to release their intricate sophomore effort Medicine Babies (ZerOKilled Music, Fall 2010). Blending hip-hop, electro, soul, synth-pop, and indie-rock, No Surrender’s spanning sound is genre-bending. Enlisting European production team Radioclit, TV On The Radio’s Tunde Adebimpe, New York fixture DJ Monica Sharp, and former Tricky muse Costanza, their guests are equally as diverse, and equally as interesting.

No Surrender’s members, Seraphim, Steeples, and Gnomad, banded together during the 90s, co-hosting the famous Revenge of The Muse parties at venues such as Brownies, CBGB’s Gallery, and Baby Jupiter, before Guiliani’s New York took its stronghold. Sharing the stage with Mike Ladd, Antipop Consortium, Stiffed (Santigold’s former band), and Apollo Heights, they proved to be a New York staple.

After self-releasing their critically lauded debut, White Power Black Magic, No Surrender was put on hold when Eddie Steeples became a permanent cast member on NBC’s My Name Is Earl, playing Darnell/Crabman. Putting unfinished tracks on the back burner, Seraphim participated in different projects (including guesting on tracks for Evil Nine and Infesticons) until Steeples finished filming. Picking up right where they left off, but adding years of experience and influences, No Surrender took on producer Costanza Francavilla to finish Medicine Babies in the ZerOKilled studio in Brooklyn.'
