Hope Con are easily one of my top hardcore faves ever and it was a super highlight of my life in punk to share a bill with them once a long ass time ago. Every slice of their caustic catalogue is essential but Death Knows Your Name really holds a vaunted place in the bleak heart of many a fan. From the performances to the songwriting, tones and energy plus the intense production, it is all there in your face. There is never a time I don’t hear it and get pumped.
Now, a remastered edition arrives with an extra song and revamped packaging via Deathwish Inc. on January 14!
Originally released in 2006, Death Knows Your Name is the landmark third full-length album from the legendary Boston band The Hope Conspiracy. Recorded by Kurt Ballou at God City Studios, the record is a powerful chapter in the band’s recorded legacy. From the haunting first notes of “They Know Not” to the Earth shaking “Stolen Days,” the unrelenting rage of the album is undeniable. From musicianship to presentation, Death Knows Your Name still stands as a high watermark for the genre.
Now, Death Knows Your Name is receiving the deluxe treatment. Featuring the classic eleven-song album along with a bonus track “Eurohell” which— until now— was only previously available on their “Hang Your Cross” EP (now out of press).
The physical packaging for Death Knows Your Name has also been revamped, featuring a special “Black on Black” printing of Aaron Horkey’s incredible artwork for the release.
