Chad of the power violence/hardcore band DNF was kind enough to talk about the band’s newly released 7″ “Hurt” as well as what they have coming up for the rest of the year. Read past the break for the interview, enjoy!
I couldn’t be more excited to spread the word that Trash Talk will be releasing a new 7″ titled “Awake” on True Panther. Trash Talk are among one of the heaviest hardcore/punk acts in the game right now and their new video for “Awake” couldn’t be a better example. There will only be 1,416 copies released so it’s probably in your best interest to pick this up immediately from True Panther. Now enjoy the video for “Awake” or die!
Check out the artwork for “Awake” below the break! Also go skate!
Words can’t describe how much I love this band and how much I look forward to the release of their new full length. Envy comes from Japan and is definitely one of the most important band in hardcore history. Their new full length “Recitation” will be available on October 12th. Until then enjoy their video for “Worn Heels And The Hands We Hold”.
