BACKSLIDER / THE AFTERNOON GENTLEMEN European Tour 2012


BACKSLIDER {USA}
The spirit of power violence is back! Golden ages of Slap a Ham and bands like Spazz or No Comment are being revived by number of killer US bands - one of these bands is BACKSLIDER ! This 2-piece power violence unit from Philadelphia plays pv assault in the veins of Lack of Interest, only much faster and more intense. They toured US a few times, released great records (i.e. split 7“ w/Chainsaw to the face) and they have a new 10“ to be released by Six Weeks Records. Play fast!!!

THE AFTERNOON GENTLEMEN {UK}
One of the best bands on the current fastcore scene ! These dudes are coming from Leeds and play mixture of fastcore, grindcore and power violence with classic sludge interludes...They have a couple of interesting records released on RSR or Give Praise record labels and there's a new split EP with Chiens and Cyborg (Weekend Nachos members project). On tour in Europe for several times, toured US with Weekend Nachos. Short, fast and loud!
