When they originally formed in mid-2009, the members of Dependency couldn’t predict all that laid on the road ahead of them.  In fact, the band that exists today is fairly far removed from the young group of musicians that came together back then.  While the line-up has stayed mostly consistent, their interests and lives have helped form something entirely their own, shrugging off much of the obvious influences apparent in their debut 2010 EP, Convicted.

What Dependency has become is something of an oddity in today’s musical landscape.  It’s clear they still hold strong to their deeply rooted melodic hardcore roots, worn so boldly on their sleeves in their first few years.  Yet, something entirely new has emerged from within their songwriting, teetering on the brink of punk, hardcore, metal, and rock simultaneously.  The culmination of this evolution is their first proper full length, Love Not Wasted, which is being released by Blood & Ink Records on November 27, 2012.

What DEPENDENCY has become is something of an oddity in today’s musical landscape. It’s clear they still hold strong to their deeply rooted melodic hardcore roots, worn so boldly on their sleeves in their first few years. Yet, something entirely new has emerged from within their songwriting, teetering on the brink of punk, hardcore, metal, and rock simultaneously. The culmination of this evolution is their first proper full length, Love Not Wasted, which is being released by Blood & Ink Records on November 27, 2012.

The release is currently available for preorder in the B&I Webstore with limited time discount pricing and package deal offers.

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!
