Bands and new music for fans of Hardcore

Spirit

by ROT

We write songs that talk about issues people need to wake up to, and sometimes it takes music to deliver that message and actually open people’s minds. Turn off the fucking TV, and know that now more than ever is the time to make a change that will help the world unite.

Smells Like Quarantine Spirit EP

by Cause of Accident

Cause of Accident is both everywhere and nowhere. These 4 tracks were written and recorded from scratch at home during UK lockdown... and thus 80% paid for by the Tories (which is obviously deeply satisfying, given that we're slagging them off in half these songs).
