Limited vinyl LP pressing. Soul Glo is a self-described "aggressive" band from Philadelphia. "Aggressive" typifies their presence in multiple senses: their first release is an untitled 13-track LP of sonically diverse exploration of all of the best themes of extreme music. Covering ground that journeys from hardcore punk to black metal with welcome experiences of power-violence, screamo, and grindcore, the band applies aggression in a much more direct and urgent sense lyrically, describing "the experience of the Black American," as their priority. "Aggressive" doesn't just apply to their open politics but also the ease with which the message spreads to the ears of anyone who daily walks with the burden of "social other" on their back. It's a replenishment of the body's water in a drought, both revealing and satisfying a need for truth that one doesn't know they possess. In the same places they find inspiration, the members of Soul Glo see desperate need for change. They have little interest in simply providing the world with more color-by-numbers hardcore songs, and instead focus on the politics of identity and experience in an increasingly dystopian America. After digitally releasing their first untitled LP and playing a small number of shows at the onset of 2015, Soul Glo went to work on another few songs released in the form of an EP, also untitled. Once they released this, the band toured the eastern half of the country in August of 2015 with the promise of seeing their two releases on a double-sided 12" on SRA Records.
