ONE WIN CHOICE – European Tour Begins On Saturday
Beginning this Saturday, May 19th, One Win Choice will embark on a month-long trek across Europe in support of its latest full-length, Conveyor, which was released in late 2011 by Jump Start Records. Joining the five piece on tour will be label mates Astpai.
As always, if you’d like to attend a show or speak with the band, drop me a line here.
In other news, One Win Choice was recently featured in Episode 2 of a video series from D.I. Wireless Podcast titled “”Fest or Bust Tour,” which chronicles a road trip to last year’s 10th anniversary of FEST in Gainesville, FL, as well as all the bands and people that make the event so unique. You can watch interviews and live footage of One Win Choice – as well as Restorations, The Great Explainer and The Bouncing Souls – here. Episode 1 can be viewed here.
On a related note, One Win Choice has been confirmed for FEST 11.
Channeling the ethos and intensity of bands such as Strike Anywhere and Refused, and and combining melodic elements not unlike Rise Against or A Wilhelm Scream, Philly’s One Win Choice is a bastion of everything hardcore punk should strive to be. Conveyor burns with an underlying fire and passion, and the term “sonic annihilation” comes to mind more than once during the album’s 33 minute run time. Still, this explosive full-length also frames a group of individuals who have grown immensely as songwriters; these 13 tracks are meticulously crafted, underscored by thought-provoking lyrics and a palpable sincerity.
