WAR Records has issued a trailer and preorders for the How Much Is Enough debut EP from MIRACLE DRUG - the Louisville-based outfit uniting a cast of hardcore veterans hailing from the likes of Mouthpiece, Supertouch, By The Grace Of God, C.R., and more - as the record is confirmed for release on July 21st. MIRACLE DRUG has also announced new tour dates, including a performance at this year's massive This Is Hardcore.
With a sound that spans different generations of hardcore, MIRACLE DRUG puts their own spin on a sound crafted in the '80s by bands like Swiz and Dag Nasty, mixing it with a more chaotic and noisy brand of hardcore played by such '90s hardcore bands as Sparkmarker, 108, Refused, and Threadbare. How Much is Enough is MIRACLE DRUG at their best, focused, energetic, and most of all a breath of fresh air in a sometimes-stagnant scene.

Right here. Right now. MIRACLE DRUG prefers to live in the present, existing in the moment, channeling the experiences of the past through the energy and excitement of the future. It should come as no surprise that there is a subtle familiarity in the band's sound, as the lineup is comprised of current and former members of notable hardcore acts Mouthpiece, Supertouch, By The Grace Of God, and C.R. After a well-received release of the band's 2015 demo on New York record label Trip Machine Laboratories, MIRACLE DRUG returned to the studio in the Fall of 2016 to capture its follow-up. Recorded by Will Allard (Xerxes, Whips/Chains) at his studio Dot Complex in Louisville, How Much is Enough is a five-song blast of raw, aggressive, yet melodic-tinged hardcore that should satisfy both fans of the early Revelation Records catalog and late '80s D.C. hardcore.
Additional audio samples, an official video, and more on MIRACLE DRUG's How Much Is Enough EP will be released in the coming days.
