Few bands embody the notion of hard work like Tampa, Florida’s STRENGTHEN WHAT REMAINS. Since first hitting the road in 2008, not only have they continually pushed themselves to improve musically and lyrically, but they’ve also used their passion as fuel through the best and worst of times.  Anyone would be hard pressed to find a more heartfelt and genuine band in hardcore today.

Throughout their nonstop tour schedule over the past year (including two European runs), STRENGTHEN WHAT REMAINS crafted six new songs of potent, metallic-hardcore that once and for all prove their genuine steadfastness. Drawing influence from the likes of 100 Demons, All Out War, Figure Four, and Zao, this newest taste of STRENGTHEN WHAT REMAINS’s musical direction will impress fans both new and old. Recorded by Corey Williams (Unified Right, Vices) and mixed by Dean Baltulonis (Madball, Sheer Terror, Trapped Under Ice), Justice Creeps Slow is a brutal new direction for Florida’s heavy hitters, STRENGTHEN WHAT REMAINS. 

STRENGTHEN WHAT REMAINSJustice Creeps Slow 7-in/EP will be available everywhere June 9, 2015 via Blood & Ink Records.
