You can listen to new album Rules here or by watch it below!
On their first album in 7 years, First Blood has come out swinging with a savage 3rd full-length record, Rules. Produced by recording mastermind Will Putney at Graphic Nature Studios (formerly known as The Machine Shop) in Belleville, NJ, Rules features 12 tracks of the band’s hardest, yet most inward-looking material to date.
Elaborating on the album title, vocalist Carl Schwartz says, ‘Rules are everywhere. Explicit rules. Unwritten rules. Unspoken rules.
‘The rule of law. Some rules we accept. Others we hate or choose to ignore.
‘Frequently, those who set the rules are found guilty of breaking those rules.
‘Many have become victims of the rules they live by, either by conquest or consent. I hope that, after listening to this album and reading the lyrics, we can revisit and remind ourselves of the very essence of the underground music scene: Living our own lives by our own rules.’
