NYHC outfit, On The Offense, has released its debut album, Frontline, today via Dead City Records. Fans can download the record through iTunes at: https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/clone/id611337951?i=611338965 and most other major digital retailers. A limited number of hard copy CDs are available for purchase through the Dead City web-store at: http://www.deadcityny.com/DC-SpecialOffersPageOnTheOffenseFrontline.htm.

 

Said vocalist Sean Finley, “I have been in this since 1986, and I have been in a lot of hardcore bands. It took this long to click with the right guys to get it done. Collectively this record spans 20-plus years of growing up in NYHC without rehashing the same old same old, or reducing NYHC to a novelty. There ain’t no games or motives or disguises about it. Listen to the record, and that’s what and who we are…NYHC for life.”

 

Frontline was recorded last year at Kray Studios with longtime friend, Johnny Kray (The Krays). 

Rooted in the late 80’s NYHC scene, On The Offense is built from the Old School merging with the New School and keeping true to the values and beliefs that is the heart and soul of New York Hardcore. The group is inspired by classic hardcore punk groups such as Sick Of It All, Cro-Mags, Token Entry, Bad Brains, Warzone, Sham 69, Kraut, Black Flag, Minor Threat, Suicidal Tendencies and more.

 

Everyone in On The Offense was born, raised, and reside in New York City, and embody what New York Hardcore is all about – fast riffs, catchy beats and intense lyrics. For the band members, it’s more than just music, it is a way of life. It’s not about image, trends, gimmicks, or egos. On The Offense is straight up hardcore punk played by friends who share a passion for the music.
