Philadelphia hardcore stars Paint It Black play at the First Unitarian Church tonight for their record release show. The band features members of past influential punk groups; frontman Dan Yemin played guitar in New Jersey-based band Lifetime, as well as Kid Dynamite, another local favorite. The band’s last recorded album, New Lexicon, was released in 2008, and since then they have been relatively quiet, save for a 7″ single release in 2009 entitled Surrender.

This band’s influence on the hardcore and punk scene is immense, so it can be expected the show Sunday will be sweaty and crazy. Although the show is sold out, information on the show and the other bands playing (Joyce Manor, Loma Prieta, Congenital Death and Bad Side) can be found here.
