“We are grateful to not only Pure Noise for putting out this record but to the Long Island hardcore scene for the support over the years – Smithtown and Huntington, 631 represent.” guitarist Andrew “Lumpy” Wojcik shares.

Regarding the Sanction’s upcoming record, members of Knocked Loose, Stick to Your Guns and Stray From The Path shared their thoughts:
“I love this band,” shares Bryan Garris of Knocked Loose, “Their last record was one of my favorites of that year, I can’t wait for this one. After touring with them and now being able to call them friends, I’m even more excited for their future.”

Jesse Barnett of Stick To Your Guns continues, “Sanction is one of those bands that have let me see into their world not just through their sound but through the overall aesthetic of their band. The whole thing reeks of anxiety and depression and I don’t think I know of a band who better drives home the point of how fucked it can be to navigate a world so hell-bent on destruction.”

Tom Williams from Stray From The Path finishes with, “Being from Long Island, the word spread quick about Sanction, and they made an instant impression on me. Their EP Infringement of God’s Plan was exactly what I needed to hear from metal core and after hearing the new singles, it sounds like this band has already elevated their game on Broken In Refraction.”
