Grand Collapse cannot be pegged down to any one clichéd style. The heavy D-beat under flailed-out endless chords, into bellowing NYHC beatdown styles, will make you want to retrace those steps. Formed 2011 in south Wales. They fuse rapid hardcore withthrash metal, politics and punk. To date they’ve released a self-titled EP (2013) and three albums; Far From the Callous Crowd (2014) & Along the Dew (2017) with the ALL NEW 'Empty Plinths' album just out this month in 2021!
Manchester birthed Incisions in 2015 and they’ve been honing the sound since. This is what being young, working class punk in the North of England sounds like. They’ve combined love, lust, liquor and rage, dragging 80s American hardcore through the streets of Manchester. They have played alongside some of the biggest names in Punk (Poison Idea, D.O.A, Adolescents, Drug Church, D.I to name a few) with some well received festival appearances along the way.
Brain Anguish are a Scottish anarcho punk duo featuring genre veterans Brian Curran (Disaffect/Quarantine/Ruin) on guitar & vocals and Angus Quinn (Sedition/Scatha/T.R.I.B.E) on bass & vocals. Still angry!
