Today’s Throwback jammy comes via one of the greatest New York hardcore outfits to ever bring the rawest, most relentless, most potent form of musical mayhem to your listening ears. Sick Of It All has remained in the cut of the underground hardcore scene for 25yrs and they continue to get better and better each waking day. As the rest of the world continues to spiral out of control S.O.I.A. trudges on through the mine-fields of misery and carnage that plagues our society all the while offering an outlet for youthful rage to a loyal fan base of epic proportions. The fuel that has feed the fire for all these years undoubtedly stems from the ongoing social, racial and economic issues that hang over our society along with the surmounting political inadequacies of a failing governments infrastructure. They have been able to reach the masses around the world by strictly staying true to their roots, speaking the truth and earning respect through integrity and the unwillingness to conform to useless influences and the bullshit that’s force feed to us on the daily.
Coming out the gutteresque chamber of CBGB’s (via Queens, NY) of the late 80′s to annihilating festivals around the globe to this very day, Sick Of It All brings nothing less then the honest truth. This Saturday night, March 26th, Sick Of It All will be playing Webster Hall in their hometown of NYC along with Snapcase, Merauder and Razorblade Handgrenade (Brick City Hardcore.)
