“A War Against You” is the sound of IGNITE taking a stand and delivering a record without borders or boundaries. The much-anticipated follow-up to the Southern California band’s 2006 watershed moment, “Our Darkest Days”, “A War Against You” affirms that IGNITE is still rooted in the energy and melodicism of hardcore’s salad days, while proving themselves not merely a great punk or hardcore band, but a great band in their own right.
Formed in 1993 in the suburbs of Orange County during the height of Seattle Grunge and the Epitaph Records punk revival, IGNITE have made a career defying convention with against the grain music and thought provoking, politically charged lyricism. From prior efforts including “Call On My Brothers” (1995), “Past Our Means” (1996) and “A Place Called Home” (2000), the band’s records have distinguished themselves with complex arrangements, triumphant hooks and IGNITE’s calling card: frontman Zoli Teglas’ unmistakable, soaring vocals.
Comb the Desert
The Hardcore and Punk scene is still alive and well in Northern New Jersey thanks to Comb The Desert, a Hardcore/Punk group formed in 2015 as an ode to the old school underground scene in Jersey.
"We come from a long turbulent but proud lineage of that vintage scene rock. we honor our past. we wanted to channel it, mold it, have our way with it. As we get older, shit happens and life goes on. But then sometimes the music comes full circle. Well, we brought that shit back."
The Loud and the Proud.
That sound we love.
- Comb the Desert
It's hard to put a finger on the genre, but it's definitely music that makes you move. Played LOUD. With vocals that remind you of Howlin' Wolf and Muddy Waters. Listen with earplugs, or don't. It's your world.
Rest Assured? was formed in 1994 in Eric's parents basement , and since has recorded and self-released three albums, two EPs, and numerous odds and ends. What sets RA? apart, other than longevity, is their frantic live show, which has more of a house party atmosphere. They will play anywhere from a broom closet to an open field. Old-school New Jersey hardcore at its finest.
