Terminal Bliss (Pg. 99/Iron Reagan) Sign With Relapse, Debut New Tracks


Terminal Bliss have signed with Relapse Records and released two new tracks online via Bandcamp. The band feature Pg. 99 vocalist Chris Taylor and guitarist Mike Taylor among their ranks, along with Ryan Parrish (Iron Reagan, ex-Darkest Hour) and bassist Adam Juersko (City Of Caterpillar).

Chris Taylor commented of the band’s origins, “We’ve all orbited each other’s bands forever. It’s been going on 20 years since I met Ryan—we used to live together. So we’ve been in and out of each other’s circles forever.” He also explained the band’s moniker, “It’s very literal, and very emblematic of us as a culture and a country. Bliss, joy, indulgence at all costs—even if it’s gonna kill us.” The group also issued the following statement in regards to their new label home:

“For us being signed to Relapse is an absolute honor. We’ve all devoured Relapse bands all the way back into the mid 90’s with releases like Neurosis, Benumb, Human Remains, Disrupt, Enemy Soil, Pig Destroyer and on and on.

Being very aware of their continuous contribution to extremely heavy and intense music for 3 decades opens the creative floodgates for us to explore some completely “out there” unhinged punk mayhem. We’re thrilled to move forward with Relapse as purveyors of our noise.”
