Hoods Sign Worldwide Deal With I Scream Records
March 11, 2009
I Scream Records is very proud to welcome Hoods to the family.

Hoods, founded in Sacramento, CA, in 1995 by Mikey Hood has grown into a Hardcore institution. Their music is a call to arms for all of those who have grown tired watching Hardcore be exploited and bastardized. Mikey Hood has used his years of experience to craft one of the most brutal and honest West Coast Hardcore bands ever.

Hoods have released several albums on a number of independents and now the long-awaited new album, 'Pit Beast', is set for release in May 2009.

“14 years and we’re still here. Still playing Hardcore, still having fun and bringing the mosh. I had no idea when I started Hoods if we would even last a year. With so many ups and many more downs we definitely made our mark. Not only for West Coast Hardcore but all over the world. I live, eat and breathe this music," stated Mikey Hood.

Laurens says: "We are excited to join forces with Hoods in the year I Scream Records is celebrating its 15th anniversary. They're one of the hardest working bands out there and a great addition to our roster"

Hoods are on tour in North America in April 2009 and will invade Europe in May 2009. Make sure to check 'em out at a venue near you.

HOODS are a Hardcore institution. The band formed in Sacramento,CA over 10 years ago and have spent that time building a legacy that will outlast the fakes and pretenders that have infiltrated HC. The band has released several albums and EPs with several labels, but in 2005 chose Eulogy to be their home. Hoods are constantly on the road having shared the stage with all of the major HC bands that have come and gone over the past years. The new Hoods lineup has already crossed the U.S. playing the new material. The King is Dead is a call to arms for all of those who have grown tired watching Hardcore be exploited and bastardized. Hoods have used their ten years of experience to craft one of the most brutal and honest releases of 2005. Without question this is the band's best material to date and is sure to ring true with fans of Terror, Hatebreed, and Madball.
