This Routine Is Hell is a four piece band from Utrecht, The Netherlands who formed in 2009. This Routine Is Hell play a great style of hardcore/punk influenced by bands such as Modern Life Is War, Give Up The Ghost, and Ruiner. Howl is the band's latest twelve song LP released via Bitter Melody Records, Cobra records, Shield Recordings, and Ruins records. Howl was recorded by Kurt Ballou at Godcity Studios. Overall, these twelve songs make for an intense and ambitious listen.

Bram and Boy from TRIH also play in The Kids' Crusade and Fever. We have released a split demo tape with both of those bands demos and timed that release with this one. You can bundle it with your TRIH LP and save a little bit. Fever is in the same family as TRIH but a little faster and more aggressive. The Kids' Crusade has a strong 90s influence, for fans of Jawbreaker and Archers of Loaf.

THESE ARE UP AND SHIPPING NOW. WE HAVE THE TAPES AND VINYL IN STOCK. I HAVE A BUNDLE WITH THE TAPE AND VINYL TOO. PLEASE CHECK OUT OUR DISTRO TOO.

This Routine is Hell (Utrecht, NL) - Call it restlessness, call it fear, call it being out of step or call it being stubborn; This Routine is Hell has been the medium which these, what some would call “defects” have been ruthlessly transformed into an uncompromising “NO”. Existing somewhere between today’s obsolete definitions of hardcore and punk, it’s hard to tell exactly what they are; but more importantly to them is why they are there.
In their words, “Where self-doubt has laid us to rest, creativity must awaken us. Where sadness only saddens more, the power of will and love must empower us. It's this path to transformation which has guided the four of us to cross borders and oceans onto uncommon ground.

The new album "Howl" is the next step into that same unfamiliar territory. We were on the verge of giving up when finally deciding to either go for it completely or simply put it all to rest. A big leap across the Atlantic was taken and we recorded our second full length at Godcity Studios with Kurt Ballou in Salem, MA in the summer of 2012.

Howl is exactly about that. It’s written with the basic idea that we simply refuse to let ourselves be governed by our fears and our doubts. But perhaps it's even more strongly against 'their' view on what it means to grow up (set in stone) and 'their' inability to actively shape their lives which has its virulent and devastating effects on all of us. It's about disassembling the society with the little tools we have, and rebuilding them with the ones we create.

Some people write biographies. This is rather a statement.”
After extensive touring throughout Europe and America, they are taking the world by storm. The first pressing of Howl sold out quickly. We have just pressed a 2nd press of Howl and shot a brand new music video for “I Wake to See the World Go Wild”. This is their 4th music video off of Howl. This video is to help promote the second press of Howl on blue, blue with green splatter, and black vinyl. This is co-released by the European labels – Cobra, Ruins, Shield and in the US by Bitter Melody Records.

Second press IS available in the States from Bitter Melody here:
