Does anyone know of any current straight edge bands or groups?
Welcome to the community!
Tagging @Hailstrom in case he can make any recommendations.
I know a few yeah. If you haven’t heard them already try Harms Way, xbishopx, Trapped Under Ice, Knocked Loose and True Love. All really good. I’m more a fan of the older 80s and 90s bands myself tho
Thx I’ll try them out.
Its a subgenre of hardcore punk whose bands and fans typically follow an abstinent lifestyle. It started with Minor Threat in the 80s and other bands like Youth of Today, Gorilla Biscuits and Chain of Strength followed.
I would say so yeah.
I was, but just because I liked the music. I certainly didn’t follow the lifestyle
@Templar13 is into this stuff. I miss his posts he always had the best band t-shirts!
Berthold City (fronted by Andrew Kline of Strife)
…and tons more.
Old schoolers Strife put out a new album a few years ago that was hard AF.
GB is rad.
GB is on tour with H20, Agnostic Front, and Wisdom In Chains.
I WIIIIISH it was coming to my town.
Holy shit that’s rad. I’m gonna check it out.
Toby from H20 was talking about it on his podcast. I think all the dates are overseas, but I could be wrong.
Sweet! I jut checked, there’s one show March 27 in S.F., but I’m seeing Tiger Army in Santa Barbara that night.
i remember going to a straight edge punk show in oakland about 15 years ago and thought it was soooo weird that all these young people (my age) were not ‘getting fucked up’ with alcohol and weed.
