XWeaponX and World Of Pleasure have just teamed up in what has already become an early contender for split hardcore release of 2023. Entitled "Weapon Of Pleasure," the straight-edge skull-smasher kicks off with two tracks from XWeaponX, a Louisville, KY-based group consisting of vocalist Dave Baugher, guitarist Bo Lueders (Harm's Way), bassist Bryan Garris (Knocked Loose), drummer Trey Garris (Two Witnesses), and guitarist/vocalist Issac Hale (Knocked Loose, Inclination, Two Witnesses). Calgary, Canada's World Of Pleasure's lineup features guitarists Colter (Mortality Rate, Serration) and Jose (Serration), bassist Steph Jerkova (Punitive Damage, Regional Justice Center), and Jess Nyx (also of the excellent Mortality Rate) on vocals.
