SPB exclusive: Bent Life's "Never Asked for Heaven"

Bent Life - Never Asked for Heaven

Scene Point Blank is pleased to debut the new Never Asked for Heaven from Bent Life, a week before its debut on August 5.

The new album is the group's first full-length and first release on Bridge Nine Records, though they formed back in 2010 and have several EPs under their belt. The record was produced by Nick Jett (Terror) and showcases a blend of clear and precise hardcore that alternates between big riffs and big hooks.

Check out below and catch the band on a short run of tour dates this weekend. Pre-orders are available from Bridge Nine.
