Oklahoma's NO X THANKS 7" debut out on xCommitmentx records

It's been more than 1,5 year since the last Commitment's release. It was Clear Path's "Wolf Pack" EP and I know you, like me, may have wondered what the label have been up to over this time and whether it was still on the map as far as releasing new bands goes. Yeah, they're still around and kicking and have shared some good news about an upcoming 7" as well as about several new releases in the works for the coming months.

The first release they will press is the debut 7” of Oklahoma based straight edge band NO THANKS.

Stream here one song titled "Creep" off the No Thanks 7" which is currently available on xCommitmentx rec bandcamp https://commitmentrecords.bandcamp.com/album/no-thanks

POTENCE is our latest "hot new band to check out", please do it...

by marcs77

It could be there is a “new” scene or something of the sort going and growing faster among the today's multifaceted hardcore punk. It's been a while now anyway. Currently there are lot of these bands in Italy and a few good locals from my area as well, and I'd like to think the label «blackened screamo post-hardcore» to fit just fine for describing this genre that blends the raw primal heaviness of black metal, unconventional angular song structures, obscure atmospheres and crusty hardcore punk urgency.
France's POTENCE, our “hot new band to check out”, ideally embodies all of above though for sure there's more served on the plate.
The foursome hails from Besançon-Strasbourg and has an untitled 4-track demo out you can download for a name-your-price-deal off their bandcamp page.
When I first heard their music I really liked the songs that make up the very first recording of these Frenchmen so we've decided to email them a few questions to give the guys the chance to introduce this new band to our readers.

gan: First off, can you please offer a lowdown on POTENCE? Who plays what, where you from, when you started out...
