Few bands have stirred up recollections of classic Spirit-filled hardcore like Pennsylvania’s Debtor. With obvious nods to bands like Strongarm and Focused, Debtor goes beyond being simply a throwback… instead, offering a refreshing new take on not only the musical approach, but also the lyrical potency of this legendary style of hardcore. After hearing Debtor’s debut EP Deliverance one time, Blood & Ink Records immediately pursued the band, leading to a digital reissue of this incredible, heartfelt release.

B&I Heading To Cornerstone!
It’s that time of year again, when we trek nearly halfway across the country to hang out in a field with all of our best friends for a week straight at the annual Cornerstone Festival!
Blood & Ink will have a table in the main merch tent again this year and we’re planning to do daily deals on all sorts of shirts, records, and CDs. Each daily deal will be announced via Twitter and posted at our table, so make sure to come by and check it out as quantities might be limited on some of these offers. We will also have limited Cornerstone versions of Figure Four’s “Suffering The Loss” LP (limited to 10 with screenprinted covers) and Venia’s “I’ve Lost All Faith In Myself” 7″ (limited to 20 with diecut covers).
We are also happy to announce that all 9 of the active B&I roster bands will be playing at least twice and we have two dedicated days on Legacy Stage (Wednesday June 29th with our “extended family”) and Solace Stage (Friday July 1st with the “immediate family”). Check out the poster above for a list of who is playing and when.
We look forward to seeing those of you also making the trip, so please come say hello!
