Japanese hardcore punks Vivisick have announced the release of their sophomore full-length record and follow-up to their 2008 debut, Respect and Hate. The album will be titled Nuked Identity and will be released on September 11 via Tankcrimes on CD and digital formats. The CD comes packaged in a full color box jacket and includes a twelve-page full color tabloid size newsprint insert and screen printed envelope. A vinyl version mastered by Dan Randall will be available in 2016 coinciding with the band’s West Coast tour with Capitalist Casualties. Vocalist Sunao commented on the new record:
“The god named ‘economy’ was exposed. Absolute existence has begun to fluctuate. People have fallen into identity crisis. What am I? Where is the answer? It is coming time to seek it. I feel each of us will have to find it. In that meaning, this title ‘Nuked Identity’ includes our wish. We will find our new identity and build them again.”
