Los Angeles, California-based hardcore punk band ENTRY will release their debut full-length, Detriment, through Southern Lord Recordings on July 17th. The lead single "Your Best Interest" is now playing exclusively at New Noise Magazine.
The follow-up to their sold-out No Relief 7" released on Dune Altar, ENTRY's Detriment LP is succinct and ferocious. Detriment is a diverse album which provides a breath of fresh air to the genre. The album showcases ENTRY's appreciation for different aspects of punk and hardcore, and their imaginative songwriting that is condensed into nine concise musical statements of intent.
As a collective, the members of ENTRY passionately believe in the power of punk and the uniting nature of music, and with Detriment,they reflect themselves and their community with integrity and authenticity. This caught the ears of Southern Lord label owner Greg Anderson, who remarks, "The unhinged intensity of ENTRY's live performance at the last Power Of The Riff fest blew me away. They embody many of the characteristics of powerful underground music that I have been obsessed with since my youth!"
ENTRY'svocalist Sara Gregory writes with the premiere of "Your Best Interest," Detriment's lead single, "This is the first song on the record. It's about how people are treated unfairly by the legal system and are unable to receive effective assistance because they lack resources."

Inspired by the likes of Discharge, Minor Threat, Converge, Tragedy, The Cramps, and The Exploited, ENTRY started as a project between Sara Gregory - whose musical origins come from punk bands in Pennsylvania - and Clayton Stevens, who also plays guitar in Touché Amoré on Epitaph Records. Bass player Sean Sakamoto plays in the indie pop band Sheer and is a recording engineer in Los Angeles, while drummer Chris Dwyer is also a recording engineer in LA. The punk community at large is as inspiring as it has ever been to them.
ENTRY has played the Olympia Hardcore Festival, and Ceremony's Homesick Festival in Los Angeles, and has opened Career Suicide, Krimewatch, Sunn O))), Dangers, Despise You, Sect, and Show Me The Body, and many others.
