BLOODCLOT - featuring true hardcore pioneers John Joseph (Cro-Mags), Todd Youth (Warzone, Murphy's Law), Joey Castillo (ex-Queens Of The Stone Age, Blast!), Nick Oliveri (ex-Queens Of The Stone Age, Dwarves) - today confirms near-three-week US tour with Negative Approach, in support of their upcoming album, Up In Arms.

Due out July 14th via Metal Blade Records, Up In Arms lives up to the rallying cry of the album's title - the bursts of high energy hardcore act as the perfect accompaniment to John Joseph setting his sights on injustice and the seemingly endless flaws of the contemporary world. For a first preview of the record, the title track can be heard below.

At its purest, there is little that can match the visceral thrill and empowering spirit of hardcore. As front-man of New York City hardcore kings Cro-Mags, this is something John Joseph knows very well, and with Up In Arms, he and his BLOODCLOT compatriots deliver a furious collection that hits hard on every level. From the moment the opening title track explodes to life, it's clear that everyone involved is having a blast and playing from the heart, and that this is no frills/no bullshit music at its most passionate. "In this band we're doing what each of us have always done: give it our all," John Joseph states plainly. "We work hard, and we have a lot to say. Look around the planet - people are fed up with the corrupt ruling class. They destroy the planet and kill millions for profit, and the formula for our response is simple: Anger + applied knowledge = results. Don't just bitch. Change it."

BLOODCLOT Lineup:
John Joseph (Cro-Mags) - vocals
Todd Youth (Warzone, Murphy's Law) - guitars
Nick Oliveri (ex-Queens Of The Stone Age, Dwarves) - bass
Joey Castillo (ex-Queens Of The Stone Age, Blast!) - drums
