Philadelphia’s End You are set to release their caustic debut album, Aimless Dread on May 21st. The record’s lead single, The Call, can be streamed via Bandcamp. It’s not uncommon for punks approaching the golden years of their later thirties to undertake a solo project. They might want to indulge their sensitive singer-songwriter side, they might have gotten really into DJing house music or they might just be tired of dealing with drummers.

While the inclination towards going it alone isn’t rare, the approach taken by Eric Smith for Aimless Dread, his debut solo release as End You, eschews so many of the cliches that the phrase “solo project” evokes, opting instead for a set of the most intense output Smith has ever released, a vicious yet cerebral set of material calling to mind the dissonant brutality of Deadguy or Breather Resist as much as it does the smartass noise rock of Karp and Born Against.

You an stream The Call and pre-order Aimless Dread via Bandcamp and the limited run cassette can be pre-ordered here
