Dine Alone welcomes Cerebral Ballzy
Dine Alone is excited to announce the addition of Brooklyn's Cerebral Ballzy to our Canadian roster! The hardcore punk quintet’s sophomore LP Jaded and Faded is set for release in early 2014 on Dine Alone (Canada) and Cult Records (US), label of The Strokes' Julian Casablancas.
A product of their surroundings, Cerebral Ballzy emerged from the borough with a sound to match it - a sounds dubbed by Strokes’ frontman Julian Casablancas as "truly legit modern hardcore/punk" and "by far" one of his favourite acts. Jaded and Faded was recorded in Texas with producer Dave Sitek (TV On The Radio, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Beady Eye) and tells the story of broken homes and broken bones.

The band has already been dubbed “New York’s next great band” by UK music-bible NME and it shows in their explosive performances which have taken place alongside the likes of Anthrax, Fucked Up and OFF! The chaotic aesthetic of their music projects itself on their touring schedule with Ballzy on a seemingly never-ending tour of America and having been handpicked to headline NME's Radar Tour in the UK this month. Canadian dates will be announced as they become available. Find more details HERE on Exclaim!
