Fast and pissed off youth crew from UK with a strong SxE message. They definitely provide good soundtrack for some circle pit action. Here's a short interview with the band.

When did the band get together and how?
The band as it is now originally started in 2007 with Me Mike, Smit and Gio. We were members of bands around in manchester at that time and we wanted to do something different to what was around at the time. We have gone through a few line up changes since then but we have never changed our message and we are all still straight edge and will continue to be.

Who are your Influences'
Are influences are bands like Carry On, Project X, Floorpunch and Chain of strength.

How do you think the scene is doing in England and Worldwide?
In England it pretty much depends on where you play. There are places that are better than others. Theres not really that many bands in the Uk that play our style of Hardcore so we're in a minority in that respect but when you go to shows everyone has fun and appreciates all the bands (usually) so its ok I guess.
As for worldwide, I know the scene is pretty big in Europe. We played a couple of shows in Europe recently and we all loved it. Austria was really good. We would love to play more shows overseas and and we're always open to offers.

Have you any shows planned in Middle/Eastern Europe?
Nothing booked as of yet but I think we are planning to do a few shows next year so hopefully that will work out ok.

Where do you most like to play live?
Theres no specific place that we most like to play but generally we prefer smaller venues. This is because there always seems to be more energy and the bands seem to get a better reaction.

Who would be your favorite band to share a stage with?
Im sure we all have different opinions of that and we'd disagree but in the past we have played with some great bands like Down to Nothing, No Turning Back and Internal Affairs. They were probably the best.

What Are you working on In The Studio At The Moment?
We have just finished re recording songs for our new record which should be out before Christmas. We recorded them with Gav our guitarist and he did all the recording and mixing. We have two new songs on our page so check them out if you're interested.

What Are Your Main Lyrical Influences when you are writing songs/records?
You would be better asking Smit, Im not sure what his main lyrical influence is but I guess he just writes about the hardcore scene and life in general.

Do you have any specific rituals for the studio or just go in and play?
Dunno just play I guess.

What do you think the high point has been for the band so far?
Im not sure really there has been many highs. Personally i think there is a new high point everytime we get a good reaction at a show.
