Pure Noise Records To Release Debut Full-Length From THE STORY SO FAR

• Track listing revealed for Under Soil And Dirt
• 12″/ CD / Digital out June 21, 2011 – Pre-Order info soon

Pure Noise Records is stoked to announce that on June 21st it will release Under Soil And Dirt, the debut full-length from THE STORY SO FAR (Walnut Creek, CA).

Recorded by Sam Pura at The Panda Studios (Furious Styles, Sabertooth Zombie, Heavy Heavy Low Low), Under Soil And Dirt is the follow up to the quintet’s last two highly acclaimed EPs, including the recent split 7″ with Maker on Pure Noise. The full-length will be available via CD, digital and of course on 12″ vinyl, which will be limited to a pressing of 1000 on three colorways (200 cream w/ red+blue splatter / 300 translucent teal / 500 black). Each copy will come with a full album download. The complete track list can be seen below. Stay tuned for pre-order info soon.

Under Soil And Dirt is an undeniably catchy affair, bursting with fist-pumping choruses, dynamic guitars and a propulsive rhythm section. Still, The Story So Far toes the line between hardcore and rock n’ roll, all while making a clear statement about its underground punk roots. As heavy as it is accessible, this amazing full-length will undoubtedly be seen as a definitive release for TSSF and points toward a bright future for the California outfit.
