Earth Crisis, Snapcase, & Strife Planning To Release New “California Takeover” Live Album

Earth Crisis, Snapcase, and Strife are planning to release a new live album featuring tracks from their February 23, 2020 “California Takeover” show in Los Angeles. The effort is expected to be released in October around their upcoming East Coast shows.

Strife’s Andrew Kline told No Echo the following about the upcoming release:

“When we announced the West Coast shows, our old friend Aaron Bruno (Awolnation) approached us about recording the show for a new California Takeover record. His old band, Insurgence, actually played night 2 of the original California Takeover at the Showcase Theatre.

I reached out to all of the bands and every agreed to make it happen. The record was produced by Aaron Bruno and Eric Stenman and engineered and mixed by Eric Stenman. My good friend, Arthur Rizk (Sumerlands, Cold World), mastered the record. I tapped Linas Garsys to do the art and the record will feature a 24X36 poster as well.”

He also added:

“The new record features 4 songs from each band, and like the original features some in between song banter. The set list is totally different, and features songs from across all three band’s discographies. The Return of the California Takeover is set to be released at the end of October on WAR Records. I couldn’t be more excited to be releasing a record like this on my label!”
