South Carolina-based emo/indie outfit is finally gearing up their debut S/T full length record, which will be available January 13. Stress Fractures is the brainchild of Martin Hacker-Mullen, who is also the owner and operator at Acrobat Unstable Records and plays in the band Clearbody as well. The upcoming self titled full length record will be the band's first full length effort, featuring 10 emo/indie anthems, fitting right in with this 5th wave of revival emo/punk bands that have been surfacing over the last few years. Fans of bands like Palette Knife, Ben Quad, Carly Cosgrove, Flight Patterns, Jail Socks, and the like, should all find something to love about this record.

The record was recorded over the course of the pandemic in Tallahassee, FL with Lon Beshari, along with Caden Clinton from Pool Kids playing drums. About the album, Hacker-Mullen says "This LP is a collection of songs written over the course of ~5 years about the times I felt lost or confused during my early adulthood, and there was a point in time where I never thought it would exist. I had reached a point where I needed to decide how seriously I wanted to take this and I chose to make a post that I would be slowing down on this project, but that I had an album written that I would like to one day record and release when I found the right people to make it with. Not too long after that, my friends Caden Clinton and Lon Beshiri reached out to me and asked if I'd like to come to Tallahassee and make the album with them as a for-fun project, which I absolutely couldn't turn down. They were able to help me create the versions of these songs that I have always wanted people to hear, and I'm grateful that I was able to have Jake Checkoway mix and master another release for this project."
