Treason: Catching up with and plans for 2019 with Rich Thurston

Treason recently returned from their first west coast shows. Here’s a quick little Q and A to bring us all up to speed.

What’s been going on? How was the trip to CA for NA30?
Rich: We’ve been busy writing and recording 4 new songs for our upcoming EP. Playing a few regional shows. California was great. It was nice seeing all the bands from the label hanging and meeting each other for the first time.
You just got new drummer, what’s up with that dude?
Rich: Yeah our original drummer started going back to school and he was in another band before Treason. Just made sense to get someone else. Dylan has fit in nicely. We haven’t missed a beat.
Hows the writing/recording going for the new EP?
Rich: Well like I stated early we have been writing and recording since California. We have almost all of it recorded. Should all be done in the next couple weeks. Pretty excited about it.
What’s the plan for 2019? Tours? Europe/US?
Rich: We have some shows set up December through March. Mostly weekends and one offs. We just cant go on a proper “tour” given our jobs and advanced age haha.
Are their any influences you have in your writing process that people might not expect?
Rich: I listen to a lot of different kinds of music all the time and I think that comes through in the music. Our newer songs have more of a thrashy tone to them. Apparently I have been listening to a lot of Obituary and Deicide haha.
Anything you’d like to add?

Rich:  I love hardcore.

New Age Records Signs Exclusive Distribution Deal with RevDistribution.

New Age Records is thrilled to announce an exclusive distribution deal with RevDistribution. RevDistribution is the home of Revelation Records as well as a roster of distributed labels such as Bridge Nine, Deathwish, Inc., Equal Vision, and dozens more. 

“New Age has been working with Rev for the better part of 20 years on distribution, and the next step in our relationship was to go exclusive,” said New Age Records owner Mike Hartsfield. “We are so focused on promoting and releasing the newer bands on the label; we need Rev’s reach, expertise and follow through to make the biggest impact possible.” 

“Hartsfield and New Age Records are back in full-force,” stated Rev’s David Satanni. “We couldn’t be happier to have them as an official part of our distribution family, and look forward to helping them take things even further than they did in their 90s heyday.”

The first releases coming out under this new deal are the Cutting Through “A Will to Change 12”, Safe and Sound “Ashes Lie and Wait” 7” and Treason “No One is Safe 12”, all hitting stores this week.
