New York hardcore veterans SKARHEAD will release their new album, "Dreams Don't Die", in July via I Scream Records. With this CD, SKARHEAD founder Lord Ezec is paying tribute to some of his favorite bands from the unforgettable era between 1986 and 1989.
A SKARHEAD release isn't a SKARHEAD release unless Lord Ezec is surrounded by an impressive list of guests and that's exactly what he did for "Dreams Don't Die".

SKARHEAD's last album, "Drugs, Music & Sex", was released on November 17, 2009 in the U.S. and November 23, 2009 in Europe via I Scream Records. The CD was recorded and mixed by Dean Baltulonis (SICK OF IT ALL, MADBALL, AGNOSTIC FRONT) and produced by Lord Ezec. The album features guest appearances by some of the hardcore elite, including Freddy Cricien (MADBALL), CIV, Jorge Rosado (MERAUDER), Jamey Jasta (HATEBREED), Armand Majidi and Craig Setari (SICK OF IT ALL), Vinnie Stigma (AGNOSTIC FRONT) and more.
Founded in 1995 by Lord Ezec, SKARHEAD released the EP "Drugs, Money, Sex" that same year. In 1999 the follow-up album, "Kings At Crime", took the worldwide hardcore scene by storm and instantaneously became one of the all-time classic hardcore records.
