Portland's Unrestrained has kept quite busy since their July appearance at GCA's 1st Anniversary Bash. They've recently welcomed a new drummer to the fold--making Unrestrained a completely straightedge band, which I'm sure they're psyched on.
The new guy Jon, whose HC history include time with Jersey Hardcore vets Backlash, will play his first show with the band on October 2nd at Satyricon in Portland with Bane, Trash Talk, and Foundation. This show will also serve as singer Justin Sitner's 30th birthday bash (send him some birthday wishes if you get the chance).
The band also recently recorded four new songs! Two tracks will appear on the At Both Ends final issue 2x7" along with two new songs each from Bane, Grade, and Between Earth & Sky. The release date is Oct 3rd at the Undertow/Unbroken/Strain show in Seattle.
The other two songs have been sent off to Europe, and will be released as a split 7" with a great band from Germany called Laura Mars (www.myspace.com/lauramarshq).
"That's it for now," reports Justin. "Ba Ba Booey to you all!"
