Such Gold - Deep In A Hole col lp
Such Gold formed in 2009 in Rochester, NY - a region steeped in tradition for quality punk and melodic hardcore bands, and DIY ethic. The band quickly released a demo, followed by a series of EPs and split 7?s on labels like No Sleep and 6131 Records. In 2012 the band released their full-length debut "Misadventures" via Razor and Tie, produced and engineered by the renowned Steve Evetts (Kid Dynamite, Saves the Day, Snapcase). The LP reached #6 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart and brought the band instant acclaim with both the hardcore and pop-punk scenes. As with any budding group there were a few bumps in the road during the band?s formative years, including the departure of a series of founding members. Vocalist Ben Kotin seized the opportunity to fill the void on guitar which sparked a new creative element in the band, and a musical push into new territory. Kotin, guitarist Nate Derby and bassist Jon Markson recruited drummer Matt Covey (formerly of Shai Hulud) to re-develop Such Gold as we know them today.
