    Formed in 2005, COUGAR DEN has remained one of the US mid west's best-kept secrets in hardcore. Packaged in a stunning 6-panel digipak with stunning artwork by renowned poster artist Aaron Horkey, COUGAR DEN's debut offers up nine tracks of spastic, energetic tracks of technical, dynamic and passionate screamy hardcore. COUGAR DEN are no strangers to touring, having several national and regional tours under their belts, including a stop at 2008's SXSW Festival in Austin, TX, and have built up a legion of fans via networking in the DIY punk scene. In 2006 the band self-released an EP and toured non-stop. The band's self-released EP has sold over 800 copies without any national distribution at all. In addition, the EP received an excellent review on Punknews.org, which called COUGAR DEN a refreshing and innovative break from a hardcore scene rife with chugs and breakdowns. Keepondrifter was recorded in spring 2007 at Howl Street Recordings by Shane Hochstetler (CALL ME LIGHTNING, HAYMARKET RIOT). TRACKLISTING: 01. ASHES NOT DUST 02. BURN THE VATICAN 03.
