The CD version comes as a beautifully designed digipack with 16-page insert by Michael Windsor (cover artist for the Da Vinci Code & Darkly Dreaming Dexter novels, who also handled Danza III and select projects for Pig Destroyer and The Red Chord). The album was too much for a single LP to handle and the vinyl version includes a bonus 7″ featuring tracks ‘Canadian Bacon’ and ‘This is Forever’.

After over a decade of creating music, three full lengths, tens of thousands of combined albums sold & hundreds upon hundreds of shows alongside the biggest names in metal and hardcore, The Tony Danza Tapdance Extravaganza have delivered what will serve as an incredible last will and testament in the form of Danza IV: The Alpha- The Omega. The album combines ferocity and technicality with their most direct and heavy material to date.
Marketing Points:

The track “The Alpha- The Omega” features guest vocal appearances by Whitechapel vocalist, Phil Bozeman and Obey The Brave/Despised Icon vocalist, Alex Erian. Extensive tour history alongside many of the hottest names in aggressive music including Suicide Silence, Whitechapel, Emmure, Oceano, Despised Icon, Winds of Plague and Born of Osiris among many others. Guitarist Josh Travis currently travels full time with Equal Vision Recording artist, Glass Cloud (currently on the Scream It Like You Mean It tour with We are the Romans and Attack Attack) keeping his musical career very visible.

Press handled by Curran Reynolds (The Sword, Today is the Day). Recorded by engineer Nicholas Scott (Miss May I)

Black Market Activities proudly presents the one of the most anticipated releases of 2012: No Absolutes in Human Suffering, the third full-length album by Gaza.

Bundle includes:
– Vinyl format of Gaza’s new record, No Absolutes in Human Suffering (Received digitally weeks before official CD street date)
– Gaza- No Absolutes in Human Suffering Album Cover Shirt
– 12″ x 14″ Cotton Twill Backpatch with Discharge Print
– 6″ x 4″ Gaza Vinyl Logo Sticker

From Salt Lake City, Gaza have carved out their own unique place in the underground with a sound so suffocatingly heavy, so honest and raw, it can only be described with extreme words. Decibel Magazine has hailed Gaza as “pure face-f@#$&*# noise-grind”, while Revolver Magazine has named it “sick and twisted sludgy grindcore – like someone threw The Red Chord and Eyehategod into a wood chipper, then used the results to fertilize an Indian burial ground”. As notorious for their message as for their music, Gaza remain staunch realists in the face of fantasy, confronting society’s hypocrisies with scientific precision.

The new masterpiece, No Absolutes in Human Suffering, pulls the listener down to new depths – the sound is smothering and inescapable, every note delivered with pure conviction. Yet above all, it is entrancing and anthemic – through the brutality, glorious melodic passages shine and haunt the mind long after the album ends. Produced by Converge guitarist Kurt Ballou (Torche, Today Is the Day), No Absolutes in Human Suffering is Gaza’s ultimate musical statement to date.

In the years since the last album, 2009’s critically exalted He Is Never Coming Back, Gaza have toured the world with the likes of Converge, The Acacia Strain, Whitechapel, Kvelertak and Trap Them. Gaza tours the US in May-June 2012 with Corrosion of Conformity, Torche, and Black Cobra.

Track listing:
1. Mostly Hair and Bones Now
2. This We Celebrate
3. The Truth Weighs Nothing
4. Not With All the Hope in the World
5. The Vipers
6. No Absolutes in Human Suffering
7. The Crown
8. When They Beg
9. Winter in Her Blood
10. Skull Trophy
11. Routine and Then Death

Preorders for the highly anticipated new album from Today Is The Day are now available! The album, aptly titled “Pain Is A Warning” was produced by Kurt Ballou and will be released via Black Market Activities/Good Fight Entertainment on August 16th. Frontman Steve Austin had this to say about the record:

“[The album contains] some of the most rocking, most epic music ever layed down by Today Is The Day. I am putting all of the hardships and triumphs of the past 3 years into this album. After many changes in personnel, Today Is The Day finally feels like a real band. We’re ready to go at it now harder than ever.”

Check out a new song from the album at their facebook page (a “like” is required but well worth it).
