No Warning have reconvened to record and release a new two-song 7", according to an interview with frontman Ben Cook on Exclaim.ca
The Toronto hardcore act has been dormant since 2005, shortly after releasing 2004's Suffer, Survive
on Warner imprint Machine Shop, but Cook told Exclaim! that "an old member found himself in a difficult and very serious situation and we want to help him and his family financially. We are all still very tight with each other so getting together for this was very easy for us.
"The music is brutal as ever," Cook describes the new material. "Jordan [Posner, guitarist] is still, in my opinion, one of the best hardcore song writers of all time."
The 7" was recorded at DNA Studios with Chris Tedesco and Steve Chahley, and will include a new song on the A-side dubbed "Resurrection of the Wolf," and a surprise cover on the B-side. No release date has been set, but it will come via Cook's own Bad Actors
B9 reissued No Warning's debut self-titled EP in 2001, and released their first full-length, Ill Blood
, in 2002, with a highly anticipated, expanded vinyl repress of Ill Blood
this past April.
Cook has kept busy in recent years with progressive hardcore act Fucked Up and various other projects like the Bitters, Young Governor, and Yacht Club. He noted that as far as the No Warning reunion goes, he has "no interest in playing live."
