In the past year or two, British hardcore enigmas The Hell have captured our hearts and minds with their completely over-the-top spirit — an ignorant tough-guy hardcore outfit with a Colbert Report tongue in cheek spin. I mean, that’s always been my assumption; taking a look through their hilarious Facebook page and the fact that they have anywhere between four to twelve anonymous members should be enough to know that The Hell is all in good fun at the expense to good taste.
The latest in The Hell shenanigans comes in the form of an an announcement that the group had signed to Prosthetic Records. A video accompanying the press release depicts the band kidnapping label head E.J. Johantgen and holding him hostage in an effort to get a record deal. Check out the brief video below.
Shit just got real.
The Hell’s Prosthetic debut will be out this July. In the meantime, get caught up with The Hell below.
