Scraping Genius Off The Wheel



Back in late April, we were thrilled to provide the exclusive pre-release album stream of When The Smoke Clears, the latest album from Atlanta’s straight-edge up-and-comers Foundation. This exceptional and oh-so-metallic record has garnered a great deal of attention from the hardcore community and seems to have already served to raise their profile in an otherwise crowded scene. (Album cut “Devotion II” might have single-handedly accomplished this task.)

As such, Foundation are doing the logical thing and hitting the road for shows throughout North America, culminating in their appearance opening for Underdog at the first night of this year’s highly anticipated This Is Hardcore festival in Philly. Tour dates are below, though I have it on good authority that there are more to be announced. Oh no, I’ve said too much!
