ABOLISH sign to Stillborn Records

South Florida's Metal / Hardcore band ABOLISH sign to Jamey Jasta's Stillborn Records. The band has entered Connecticut's Dexter's Lab Studios with engineer Nick Bellmore (Hatebreed, The World We Knew, Phantoms, Death Threat) to record their first full-length album to be named "Beyond Redemption". The band commented "We are very excited to be working with Stillborn, a label that is so well respected and has released some of the staple records in the hardcore and metal genres. With our new record, we wrote songs with the heavy groove we wanted to hear. We hope everyone enjoys the record as much as much as we do. See you on tour."

Label owner and Hatebreed frontman Jasta added "I'm excited to be working with Abolish. Their sound is as hard as their work ethic!". Check out more about on the Abolish MySpace.
