Tiny Engines (Dikembe, Restorations, Tigers Jaw) is stoked to welcome Orlando, FL’s Direct Effect to the roster. The band recently finished recording their debut full-length, Sunburn, which is tentatively scheduled for a Summer release on the Carolina-based label. The LP will follow up the band’s 2011 debut 7″, Forget The Rest, on Get Outta Town Records. You can order that record in the Tiny Engines store here.

Direct Effect was recently confirmed for FEST 12 in Gainesville, FL. “Permanent Vacation”, the first track from the band’s upcoming album, is now streaming on the band’s Fest page here. Also, check out the Sunburn Demos, all three songs will appear on the Direct Effect’s new album as well. The band also released a tour video for the album closer, “Thoughts Of Honey”, which can be viewed here. And, last but not least, Direct Effect recently recorded some studio live sessions for Off The Avenue, you can check those three videos out here.

As much as one might enjoy and appreciate the brute force and energy of crossover noise rock and hardcore, it is also a genre defined and owned by part time old dudes who might not relate to their audience anymore. Luckily for us Direct Effect are youthful and reckless enough to make you go nuts, and invite the audience to do the same. The band is loud to say the least, existing somewhere between 80’s hardcore and 90’s Nirvana worship. On their debut full-length, the band has measured out close to a half hour of unadulterated, thought out hardcore punk that will make fans of Paint It Black, Pissed Jeans and Fucked Up stand up and head bang. What was only hinted at on the band’s debut 7″ is now fully formed on Sunburn.

The band will be hitting the road starting next week with Ex-Breathers. Check the tour dates below. Facebook events page here. Tour poster here.
