Born out of Troy, NY's infamous hardcore scene in 2004, but having attacked the scene seriously since 2015, BRICK BY BRICK have relentlessly cultivated their reputation as a hybrid hardcore and metal force. With influences ranging from Slayer to Agnostic Front by way of Black Sabbath and Sick Of It All. Having added Ray Mazzolla on vocals in addition to longtime members Mike Valente (Guitars), Andy Parsons (Bass), and Jeff Facci (Drums) the band has a fresh new perspective and wicked intent.
The band has leaped from peak to peak, including European tours with bands like Slapshot, Madball and Iron Reagan. The band has had their own Jack Daniels single barrel select bottle and a regional meadery create a mead for the band. They’ve performed at a huge range of festivals including Black n Blue Bowl, Tsunami Fest and New England Metal And Hardcore fest among others. It’s all a reflection of a band who have given their lives to the hardcore scene and who won’t take no for an answer. Instead they keep coming, unleashing crushing records and proving to fans that they are here to crack skulls.
Their new record Dismal Existence drops on February 18, 2022. The band plans to hit European shores twice as well as making a US run. They’re going to pick up the momentum they had before the pandemic and continue their unfiltered hardcore assault wherever they may roam. Prepare yourself for an unforgettable metallic hardcore assault this winter. It’s just a continuation on a devastating legacy and one that proves BRICK BY BRICK remain determined to become one of the worlds premier hardcore acts.
