THE LONG WAY HOME
- Out in Europe February 6th, 2012 on Lifeforce Records -
We are very happy to announce that Lifeforce Records is going to release the new album "The Long Way Home" by Australia's CONFESSION in Europe on February 6th, 2012.
CONFESSION, from the burgeoning depths of Melbourne's hardcore scene is a new and exciting enterprise bringing the mosh back to hardcore, and an encounter with the savage new five piece may just warrant forgiveness on a whole new level. For it's not without lashings of wraith that this vicious band have exploded onto the Australian music scene with their debut release 2008's "Can't Live Can't Breathe".
Collectively this practised crew of misfits boast experience in an array of some of Australia's finest hardcore bands including widely-adored yet now defunct I KILLED THE PROM QUEEN, thriving Melbourne act CARPATHIAN, US giants BURY YOUR DEAD, PRO TEAM, and Byron Bay band 50 LIONS. Add to this, notorious lead singer Michael Crafter's brief but tumultuous storming of the Big Brother 2008 House, and you'll find CONFESSIONS's combined crowd-pulling power is second to none.
Having participated in some of the most successful, most revered and even most controversial hardcore bands of the past five years, Confession's combined history is evident in their distinctly more mature sound.

Following the success of their debut full length "Cancer" (2009) and sold-out Australian tours throughout 2010 as well as European tours with RAISED FIST and FOR THE FALLEN DREAMS, CONFESSION prepares to push forward.
Recorded with iconic Swedish metal producer Fredrik Nordstrom (Bring Me The Horizon, I Killed The Prom Queen, In Flames, Nightrage), at his Gothenburg Studio, "The Long Way Home" presents an assured and strengthened outfit. "We knew he was going to make this record sound amazing and he did exactly that," says Crafter, of the talented producer.
Musically the album unveils a "faster and more intense" sound, than Blunt Magazine's Australian Album of the Year for 2009, "Cancer" which also debuted at #1 on the AIR Independent Charts. Though in keeping true to their roots, fusing both heavy and melodic elements together "is what we have always been about," claims Crafter. And keeping "a good balance is what we have achieved."
Having taken a giant leap towards forging themselves as a force within the international hardcore community, CONFESSION is back on home soil and eagerly awaiting the release of "The Long Way Home".
