Three Years Two Months Eleven Days

Three Years Two Months Eleven Days was an album of early material, often referred to as a retrospective, by the New Jersey, U.S. band, Ensign. Recorded in various sessions between January, 1996 and July, 1998 – including a live recording – and with varying members, it was released by the band's first record label, Indecision Records in April, 2000.

Overview

Ensign had recorded two EPs – a self-titled 7" and the Fall From Grace 7" – and a full-length debut, Direction Of Things To Come, for Orange County, California label Indecision Records before departing for the larger Nitro Records in 1998. Far from seeing this as a cashing-in exercise by Indecision on the band's new, wider audience, it was seen as filling the gaps in the essential history of a band who would go on to tour with metalcore band, Hatebreed in 2002. Most of the material was either unreleased, out-of-print or very rare.

Style-wise, it was very obviously more akin to Direction Of Things To Come than anything they did subsequently on either Nitro Records or Blackout Records. Straightforward, short blasts of hardcore punk in the New York hardcore mould that they had imported to the Californian shores in 1995.
