Fit For Abuse "The Psycho Ray Sessions"

After the release of the "Mindless Violence" EP, original singer Matt Kelly took a job beating the skins for the Dropkick Murphys, and local legend "Psycho" Ray Damien was recruited as Fit For Abuse's new frontman. The band existed for a year or two with this lineup and recorded eight tracks for an EP that was originally slated for release on the Dropkick Murphys' label, Flat Records, but for one reason or another, the record never made it beyond the studio and just a single track - "Four More Years" - was released on a Suburban Voice freebie 7" compilation. Lo-fi, unmixed versions of these songs have circulated around the internet for many years, but we were finally able to track down the closest existing thing to a master tape to bring you this record, featuring six "new" cuts and two re-recorded demo songs. Unrelenting Massachusetts hardcore at its finest. 7" includes digital download and is limited to 500 copies.
