Seattle hardcore thrash punks The Insurgence will be heading out on a mini-tour in November in support of new full-length album "Elimi-Nation," out now on Innerstrength records. The tour starts November 3rd and has stops in Washington, Mexico, Arizona, and California.
Hardcore punk act and Digital Warfare Records artist Slow Children from Riverside, CA will be supporting the shows. You can also check out a new video for "We Can't Be Stopped" below. Here's what the band has to say about the song and upcoming tour:
"The American Oligarchy: A system in which power resides only within a small ultra-wealthy political class. As the wealth of a nation becomes increasingly concentrated in the hands of a few, laws are re-written allowing that wealth to be converted into political influence. Record amounts of money flowing into the political system drown out the voices of all but a few. The rules are being re-written, and they are not in your favor. Eighty percent of the country is left to fight over less than half of the wealth. Is the oligarchy really working that much harder than you? They may have their shackles around our politicians, but the only thing that shackles the rest of us is complacency. We have been forgotten, thrown away and they are betting you will do nothing. We have the numbers. Together, we can't be stopped! Do not miss this tour!" More...
Innerstrength Records has announces the signing of The Insurgence. The band's new album, "Elimi-Nation," was recorded at Soundhouse by Jack Endino and is scheduled for release on September 29th on CD, colored vinyl, and digitally. A video for the song "We Can't Be Stopped" was recently filmed and will be released soon.
Formed in 2006, The Insurgence is a punk band with metal and hardcore influences. Influenced by "world issues" and not just governmental politics, they "take being pissed off about unjust bullshit in the world and turn it into a musical outlet where they can possibly educate and motivate others," according to a press release. The band goes on to say, "Not sounding like you're being preached to, it's more coming from the gut, sincere, raw and pissed off. It's about 'the big guy stepping on the little guy,' which you quickly discover listening to their songs about such topics as corporate greed, the American oligarchy, religious exploitation and the military industrial complex. Such truths might not be easy to stomach, but they are a glaring reality, and The Insurgence do not avoid anything controversial or uncomfortable, just to avoid offending people." More...
