Akimbo announces 'Live to Crush' their final album

Last spring Seattle noise-rock/metallic hardcore trio Akimbo announced the end of their 14-year career and played their farewell show on August 11th at the Comet Tavern in their hometown. Before their demise the band was working on an album with Jello Biafra's label Alternative Tentacles, and now that LP (titled Live to Crush) will finally see the light of day. 'Live to Crush' arrives digitally April 16, 2013 and on LP April 20.

This final outing features the long-time line up of original members Nat Damm (drums), Jon Weisnewski (bass/vocals) and 2006 addition Aaron Walters (guitar). This is the group's first LP since their 2008 Neurot-released album Jersey Shores.  The release was announced via the band's Facebook with the following message:

"Test pressing for our last album Live To Crush. Sounds HUUUUGE! 500 hand numbered LP's coming out on Alternative Tentacles next month! Download code included."
