Fronted by punk legend, Mark Civitarese (The Unseen), Ashers aims to create a new sense of aggression on Kill Your Master, combining elements of hardcore, rock, punk, and metal to create a unique sound that will be a rallying cry for all fans of aggressive music.  It is their first release since their debut EP, “Cold Dark Place” (Welfare Records), in 2008.
“I’m pumped on this album,” states Civitarese.  “We recorded it at The Outpost, the same place where many great bands recorded: Blood for Blood, Dropkick Murphys, Slapshot – along with mine and Billy’s other bands – The Unseen and Crash and Burn.  The album sounds killer, but is not overproduced – we wanted it to be very raw.”
Ashers will play 13 shows in 11 days before heading off to Europe for a headlining run.  The band will then return home for a US tour this fall.
