Official press release:

Southern Lord announces the signing of Jesus Piece, confirming the release of the band's debut LP in 2018.

Jesus Piece is a Philadelphia hardcore band that simply plays what they want to hear, and they work tirelessly to play to everyone they can. Their anthems lyrically range from personal struggle and loss, to racism, police brutality, and many other social and political injustices.

Jesus Piece formed in 2015 and self-released their first demo/EP in the same year, followed by a self-released EP in the Summer of 2016. Most recently, Bridge Nine Records released a split 7" between Jesus Piece and Malice At The Palace earlier this year. The band has paved their own way into the national scene by booking multiple headlining coast-to-coast tours among many bouts of regional touring and performances at notable festivals including This Is Hardcore, Nature World Fest, Sound And Fury, FYA Fest, and others. 2018 will see the band record their debut LP for release through Southern Lord.

Issues Jesus Piece on the new signing, "Southern Lord is a label we've looked up to for releasing some of our favorite metal and hardcore records, so it's an honor to be a part of it, and we're super excited to put out our first record with them."

Southern Lord owner Greg Anderson states, "Jesus Piece evokes intense, discordant, angular aggression in the same way certain '90s bands were kicking asses with. Think Deadguy, Kiss it Goodbye, Bloodlet, Disembodied. They fuse this chaos with a brutal modern execution. Southern Lord is extremely excited to be working with Jesus Piece and can't wait to unleash their debut album upon the unsuspecting hordes."
