“Having tested their mettle on the underground circuit, Florida’s Gouge Away are ready for the big leagues.” – Revolver

“…fuses the battering-ram fury of today’s hardcore underground with the skronky heaviness of ’90s noise-rock. It promises great things.” – Stereogum

Floridian punks Gouge Away will release their Deathwish debut, ‘Burnt Sugar’, this Friday.  In anticipation, they’ve released the album’s third single Hey Mercy in conjunction with Kerrang!’s Underground Sounds of America.

Next week, Gouge Away will embark on an extensive worldwide tour; first, an East Coast run alongside Culture Abuse followed by a UK tour together.  Upon their return to the States, Gouge Away will head back out on the road in November, this time with Drug Church.  The tour will take the bands from the West Coast, through the Midwest, eventually ending back in Gouge Away’s home state.

Mixed and mastered by Jack Shirley (Deafheaven, Oathbreaker) and co-produced by Jeremy Bolm (Touche Amore), ‘Burnt Sugar’  takes cues from bands such as Unwound, The Jesus Lizard, and Fugazi. Gouge Away carry with them a lightning-in-a-bottle urgency that imbues their sound; this is a band that refuses to be ignored.
