Reverse the Curse made an impression on me with 2011’s Hither & Yon, and now they’re ready to unleash their sophomore effort Existent. The album is out August 27th on Paper + Plastick Records, but the band has released the entire effort for streaming on SoundCloud. It sounds like a significant step forward from the base the group had previously established, and is one of those releases that’s hard to categorize into one particular genre. Check out the full release below!

Reverse The Curse is now streaming its sophomore full-length record, Existent, on SoundCloud.

The Hiram, OH-based post-rockers take a huge step forward in their second album for Paper + Plastick Records. ThePunkSite.com agrees with that sentiment, praising Existent in a ringing endorsement of a 4.5/5-star review:

“Words hardly do Existent justice. It’s the type of album that takes many trips to the thesaurus to pinpoint just the right adjectives to spotlight the brilliance within. Even half way through the year and it’s clear – Reverse The Curse has crafted the post-hardcore album of the year (if you can really peg Existent into a discernable genre). If Hither & Yon put Reverse The Curse on the map, then Existent makes them a destination landmark.”

The record can be purchased in the Paper + Plastick Records webstore.

“…The band’s most unexpected tones and turns feel the most accomplished and gripping,” Heisel wrote. “Reverse The Curse are taking a popularized punk sound they’d already honed well and breaking it apart for something new and exciting. If that’s the new trend, they’ve effortlessly spearheaded it.” – Alternative Press music editor Scott Heisel, reviewing Hither & Yon
