It’s around this time of year, between the haze of EOY lists that we start to look towards new music on the horizon for 2013. Already this week we’ve had new snippets of music from Cult of Luna and Kongh. South Carolina’s Burnt Books are another hot prospect for 2013 as they ready the release of their debut full-length through At A Loss Recordings. Their Facebook page lists their genre as avantgardecore, so clearly they’re a bit tongue in cheek when it comes to genre classifications but boiling them down to their essence, Burnt Books are a hardcore band that have tinkered with the template with some noise rock and judicial doses of melody. It’s nothing new by any means but still promising. Decibel are streaming the track ‘Selfish Friend’ now. Check it out HERE.
