and I, the drunkards CD

Society's Finest has seen many ups and downs over their 8-year career, but have used the experience to grow and mature, both as people and as a band.

After a hiatus in 2003, during which time vocalist Joshua Ashworth toured as singer of Zao, the band reformed stronger than ever, and signed with Hand of Hope Records.

Their Hand of Hope debut, "Love, Murder, And A Three Letter Word", released in June of 2004, received both critic and fan praise and Society's Finest quickly became one of the best-selling bands on the label. The long awaited full length, titled "And I, The Drunkards", has an intensity and passion that far surpasses their previous material.

The music is propelled by driving double bass and metallic riffs, crafted by Eli Bowser, who has collaborated in the past with Tim Lambesis (As I Lay Dying) on both Society's Finest and other projects. Eli was also a significant force in the production of the album. The music supports Joshua's vocals-ranging from a menacing growl to impressively adept melodic singing. Lyrically, the songs are brutally honest and discuss Joshua's disagreement with the opinion Christians must be perfect all the time. "It's angry, it's dark, it's honest, it's real," says vocalist Joshua Ashworth about the new record, "We wanted to dress ourselves up in the intensity of life, love, and regret....and then show everyone how our nightmare really exists. "And I, the Drunkards" was written in frustration and silence. It needed to be designed and then played out in real life situations. We chose Andreas Magnusson (Planet Red Studios, Scarlet) because of what he did with his own music; we knew we would get that darkness we were looking for."
