Legendary SoCal artists (HED) P.E. have revealed details for their upcoming “Sandmine” EP”, set for release on July 23rd, 2021 via Suburban Noize Records. (HED) P.E. will commemorate the new release by hitting the road starting July 23rd in Las Vegas, NV for a month-long headlining tour. The tour will also mark the first time the band performed tracks off their critically acclaimed twelfth-studio, “Class of 2020”, which was released last year.
“After the success of ‘Class of 2020’, we wanted to give the fans more of what they wanted! The pandemic, the election, the reaction, the pending birth of my daughter…all these experiences fueled the inspiration for Sandmine. The title itself names a brutal place where only the strong survive and few are able to escape,” comments frontman Jared Gomes. “On ‘Class of 2020’ we went back to our roots with the back-to-basics approach; but on this one we mixed all those elements together with our signature G-Punk sound and a pissed off ‘Sandmine’ was born. I cannot wait for the world to hear this one.”
Recorded at Gomes home studio in Idaho, the seeds of “Sandmine” were triggered by producer/songwriter Remy Dovianus who co-wrote and co-produced the EP. Dovianus has been a lifelong (HED) P.E. fan and recorded the guitar and bass in The Netherlands with a goal of harnessing the signature sound of the band’s biggest albums. Drummer Jeremiah “Trauma” Stratton laid down his drums with an emphasis complimenting the deep metallic grooves.
Frontman Jared Gomes is at the top of his game and ever defiant on “Sandmine”, recording vocals that draw inspiration from the raw aggression of Suicidal Tendencies and Rage Against The Machine, mixed with the unfiltered hardcore tones of Hatebreed. “Sandmine” encapsulates the old thrashiness and ferocity of early (Hed) P.E albums, weaving together a complex mixture of poignant punk-rock, brutal riffs, and bludgeoning drums that packs a walloping punch.
