If you’re looking for gritty, high-energy rock fused with post-hardcore, punk, and just a touch of thrash, look no further than Portland, OR rockers, The Without. Releasing their debut EP on March 14th, Factions is a testament to the band’s immense talent. Rarely do artists come out of the gate with such a strong, well-defined sound, and in this, The Without provide something refreshing.
Speaking about the writing and recording process, Michael Draper says, “It was a rewarding process, really putting our stuff under the microscope and discussing at length, what we believed worked and didn’t work about each song. It forced us to communicate with each other patiently and clearly, and it’s really strengthened our writing process for this next batch of songs. We recorded with our good friend Stephan Hawkes. He’s worked with great bands on awesome records (Atilla, Chelsea Grin, I Declare War) He really pushed us. The studio experience itself was very fast. We recorded the whole EP in five days!”
