Benchpress Comments On Bands With Differing Ideologies Touring Together

Hardcore outfit Benchpress will soon be embarking on a tour with Wolf Down (dates available below), which brings up a question of bands with differing ideologies performing together. Benchpress comments:

"We've had a bunch of people ask us why Benchpress, a band full of ignorant, protein loving jabronies, is touring with the vegan, straight-edge band, WolfXDown.

"The second that we start to qualify what bands we're willing to tour with, based on the views they hold and the lifestyle they live, is the second that we lose focus and fall into a segregative mindset. Segregation and discrimination falls directly against every single thing that hardcore stands for.

"Maybe we can learn a thing or two from WXD? Maybe they can learn a thing or two from us? Who knows? Maybe we won't. And even if we don't, we're still going to mosh hard as fuck for 17 days because that band rips.

"Hardcore is about the fucking music. Don't get it fucking twisted."
