Blackened hardcore trio LEECHED to release ‘To Dull The Blades Of Your Abuse’ on Jan. 31st via Prosthetic Records; watch horrific new video now!
Manchester blackened hardcore trio LEECHED announce the details of their second full-length ‘To Dull The Blades Of Your Abuse’, alongside a bleak and ripping video for first single « Earth And Ash ». The album will be released via Prosthetic Records on January 31st, 2020.
The band comments: « This video was created to show what will one day become a reality. All the games we play will cease to matter. And all the money we own will cease to hold value. This world doesn’t care about you or your benevolent good nature. It doesn’t care about your past achievements. In the grim darkness of the future there is only despair and depravity. »

On their sophomore album, LEECHED prepare to broach uncomfortable topics in a way that is as unflinching as it is emotive. Since the release of ‘You Took The Sun When You Left’, LEECHED have honed their craft and embraced a far denser production ethos. By pushing the boundaries of their own comfort zones during the writing and recording, they have created an album that fizzes with discordance and teeters precariously on the precipice of the abyss.
LEECHED ‘To Dull The Blades Of Your Abuse’
Out January 31st on Prosthetic Records
The industrial overtones — inspired in part by the bleakness of their hometown, Manchester — of their debut remain; cold, desolate, inhospitable. The trio have created a seemingly impenetrable exterior of expansive bleakness. Yet underneath the surface there is a white-hot mass of barely controlled aggression, writhing under the scrutiny of their collective creativity.
LEECHED have capitalised on the response to their debut release, playing shows both home and abroad, sharing stages with the likes of Full of Hell, Employed To Serve and Harms Way – delivering their sonic violence purposefully and powerfully.
The band also announced live shows around the album release with Tuskar and Geist:
29 January – The Black Heart, London, UK
30 January – Alberts, Nottingham, UK
31 January – Crofter’s Rights, Bristol, UK
01 February – Deaf Institute, Manchester, UK
02 February – Bannermans, Edinburgh, UK
