Today Milwaukee’s annihilating metal/hardcore squad ENABLER releases the first single from their pending Shift Of Redemption EP, due out on April 9th via Think Fast! Records. The second of four tracks on Shift Of Redemption, “Live Low” portrays the explosiveness this act conveys in every respect, their body-ravaging hatred and a dispirited outlook on life delivered through swift and brutal hooks that infectious as Ebola.
Stated ENABLER’s founding guitarist/vocalist Jeff Lohrber on the creation of the song:
I’m sure I could find some way to doctor this up and make this song seem like more than it is, but I see no reason to fool anyone. I was pretty pissed off and I intended on writing ‘the ultimate f*** you song.’ This song is probably my favorite Enabler song to play live. I can apply the lyrics in this song to many people in my life and I’m sure you can too. F*** you forever.

Next week, ENABLER’s first European tour with Rotten Sound and Martyrdöd begins, with sixteen cities across the continent on the itinerary, beginning with a sendoff show in Dayton, Ohio on February 18th.
Following their Southern Lord released All Hail The Void LP, ENABLER’s upcoming Shift of Redemption EP features four brand new tracks from the Brew City killers, and showcases the band expanding their infectious sonic violence into new territory. The tracks were recorded by Shane Hotchstetler at Howl Street Recordings, mixed by Chris Common (Pelican, These Arms Are Snakes), and mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege (From Ashes Rise, Sleep, High on Fire), with artwork provided by Raf W. Think Fast! Will release the EP via digital download and 7”; the first pressing limited to 1,000 copies, with 350 copies pressed on gold wax and 650 on clear. Preorders/merch bundles are now available; vinyl preorders contain digital download coupons. Check it out HERE.
