US hardcore band No Innocent Victim sign with Facedown Records.

AMERICA's Facedown Records have signed No Innocent Victim, described as "hardcore legends" by HM magazine. The band will be recording an album for release this summer. The label describes the group's "disappointment with the lack of integrity in today's hardcore scene," as fuelling the reunion. Longtime guitarist Corey Edlemann has rejoined the band, alongside Tim Mason, making NIV a five-piece for the first time. Former xDisciplex Ad member Neil Hartman has also been added to play bass. Rounding out the group is Facedown Records' head Jason Dunn on drums and original frontman Jason Moody on vocals. CR
