After a raucous summer tour, the pride of NYC hardcore’s scene, H2O, is back with a spankin’ new EP, “All We Want.” Set for release on October 29, 2002, this low-priced CD is sure to keep the band’s rabid fanbase satisfied until the release of their fifth full-length, tentatively scheduled for spring ‘03. “All We Want” is packaged in a special digipak and contains three new studio recordings, two live tracks and a video.
True to the band’s DIY ethic, and harkening back to their earliest indie days, the EP’s recording session started August 25 and finished mixing a short two weeks later. Produced and mixed by SCRAP60 (Ill Nino, Primer 55, Anthrax), the three new studio tracks were recorded at Bear Tracks studio in Suffern, NY and mixed at Red Clay studios in Monsey, NY and are entitled “All We Want,” “Static” and “Wrong.” The CD also contains a bonus video of their recent anthem “Role Model.”
Also featured on “All We Want” are live versions of fan favorites “Role Model” and “Memory Lane” (from their MCA debut Go!). Both tracks were recorded at an incredibly oversold show at CBGBs this summer. Guitarist Todd Morse remembers the show, where 600 people packed a space that is legally allowed to hold 350, as the most overheated and dehydrated he has ever been in, not only during the band’s over 1000 shows, but in his entire life.
