Philadelphia-based speed metal grinders DRONES FOR QUEENS have announced their upcoming 7inch "Practically Weapons", will be released March 10, 2015 via Riff Lifter Media. The 4-song EP will be pressed on white vinyl and limited to 300 copies. Pre-orders are available here.
"Practically Weapons" was recorded in Aug 2014 by Steve Roche (Stinking Lizaveta, Rat Healer, Nightfall, Witch Hunt, Serpent Throne) at Permanent Hearing Damage in Philadelphia. The EP was then mastered by Dan Randall at Mammoth Sound Mastering.
Featuring ex-members of Woe, Woods of Ypres, and current members of The Green Evening Requiem, Population Zero, and Dirt Worshipper, DRONES FOR QUEENS previously released a split 7” out with Occult 45, as well as a cassette EP ("Health") in 2012. Their music has been described as "hard hitting D-Beat with complex riffage" (New Noise Magazine), "blistering double-kick drumming, and a strong melodic sensibility"(Exclaim), "hard hitting, hook laden music that takes no prisoners" (The Monolith), and as a "solid mix of metal and punk with traditional elements combined with some emerging nuances" (Blow The Scene).
Drones For Queens is comprised of guitarist/vocalist Shane Madden, drummer Evan Madden, and bassist Bob Stokes. The band will announce US tour dates later this year.
