Kingpin was a Massachusetts-based band active from 1990 to 1993 that took cues from NYHC, Melodic Hardcore like Verbal Assault, and Metal riffs to create an early incarnation of the "New School" style popularized by many bands throughout the duration of the era. In addition to a 7" titled Holding Tomorrow released on Suburban Voice records, the band also recorded 4 songs that were never released prior to the bands breakup, and have been floating around on the internet ripped from cassette tapes. Now, these songs have finally been remastered and packaged for a proper press on vinyl via Atomic Action records. The songs can be streamed here through the label's bandcamp, and the 7" can be ordered through their webstore.
