Gulf Cru Media is keeping the hardcore scene alive along the Gulf Coast, and on Jan. 14 will fill The Attic at The Blind Mule with thrashing breakdowns, raging serenades and roars from three furious bands.

Azalea City metalcore band Falling for Insanity will host two out-of-town guests. Falling for Insanity’s set will feature the band’s latest single “Tree Fiddy” which, in true metalcore fashion, swells with diverse rhythms and morphing vocals.

Crafter will serve Mobile a dose of New England-style hardcore punk. The crowd can expect an onslaught of underground rock filled with vehement vocals and ominous riffs with a live show that will deliver a powerful volley of passionate, musical aggression.

Pulling influence from bands Every Time I Die and Norma Jean, Voices in Vain serves as a retort to Vermont’s typically jam-heavy music scene. This band takes a cue from such bands as Dr. Acula and avoids metalcore’s knack for mixing clean and grungy vocals, instead choosing to maintain a hellacious overtone throughout.
