It’s been a long time in the making but Foundation’s B9 debut album, When The Smoke Clears, will be available worldwide in May 3rd and the cover art is finally ready to be seen. When The Smoke Clears is ten tracks that are reminiscent of 90’s ‘core like Buried Alive, Indecision and Bane and is a must-have for any fan of hardcore, both past and present. Foundation has already made a name for themselves by touring across the US with Terror, hitting Europe with Bracewar, and playing the festival circuit (United Blood, This Is Hardcore, Sound & Fury, and more). The band will be hitting Rain Fest in Seattle along this forthcoming tour routing as well.

Foundation’s drummer Champ Hammett said, “We are really excited to head back out and see some friends from around the country. I know I speak for all of Foundation when I say we cannot wait to play new songs from the "When The Smoke Clears" LP and actually have the record with us on tour also. Hank's other band Dead In The Dirt will be joining us on the whole tour, they are not the style of band we normally would tour with but I really think kids will be super into them. This tour has shaped up to be a banger so we hope to see you all at the shows." Vocalist Tomas Pearson commented, “Being able to play Rain Fest again alongside some of our favorite bands like Madball, Trial, and 7 Seconds, as well as our friends in Cruel Hand, Rotting Out, and Ruckus is something we are all very much looking forward to. We hope to see everyone out at the shows."

Devotion II is NOT the same Devotion that appears on the America's Hardcore Comp. The only 2 songs that are re-recorded are Never Stops Raining and A Thousand Ways but those songs came out on a 7" that has been out of press for 3 years. I'm excited to hear the whole record, it's gonna be great.

Is it impossible for any new bands to NOT re-record old ass songs for filler for their LP ?

Never Stops Raining, A Thousand Ways, and Devotion are my favorite songs by them and I'm so pumped on hearing them like new again.
