Song Premiere: "Breakaway" by Permanent Collection

Permanent Collection is the moniker that Jason Hendardy has made music under since 2010. Most would probably classify the music as post-punk, alternative rock, an exciting amalgam of noise, or way too loud if you were a sound guy at a show between 2010 and 2013.

Hendardy will be releasing his latest album, the highly anticipated Nothing Good Is Normal, on June 19th. All digital sales of the LP are going to the Anti Police Terror Project

Permanent Collection started off as an outlet for a few solo home recordings of Hendardy’s, which built into an EP, Delirium, in 2011. This was followed by a number of solo shows and tours.

In 2012 Permanent Collection grew into a full band with the release of their debut album, Newly Wed Nearly Dead, and they toured across the US. For two years the line-up stayed the same, with Hendardy on guitar and vocals, Megan Dabkowski on bass, Brendan Nerfa on guitar, and Mike Stillman on drums.

In late 2013 a follow-up EP, No Void, was recorded and released as a three-piece. After several more shows and tours, 2014 found Permanent Collection in a period of dormancy. Hendardy turned to writing music for other bands and releasing material under different names, in addition to working in video and sound design.

Last year Hendardy began to focus his efforts on writing another solo record and the fruits of his labors will be available in just over a week.

Big Takeover is stoked to host the premiere of the darkly exhilarating “Breakaway,” a relentlessly propulsive and vividly reverberating track from Nothing Good Is Normal.

Pummeling drums never let up, creating a break-neck pace that is mirrored in the dark and driving bass line. Sharp and scintillating shards of guitar distortion explode like fireworks, while Hendardy’s echoed and extended vocals run with a restless, but cool passion

Crank the amps to the max on this super-blaster!
