MAQUINA MUERTA
Outstanding raw punk. Mexican inept punks met the ORDEN MUNDIAL singer when he was travelling in Mexico and recorded a killer Realities of War filtered by Swedish first wave of Kang bands 7", now they are over here to play just a few shows. Out of control, dirty and basic hardcore punk which couldn´t be made anywhere else but in Mexico. This will probably be your only chance to see them play over here, so don't miss out.

DREGS
Aggressive, blunt but catchy hardcore from new London band. Members of Woolf and Semi.

VIOLENT REACTION
The UK's finest, back in London for the first time in a little bit. Originally conceived and executed as a one-man project by Tom Pimlott on the banks of the Mersey River in Liverpool, England, Violent Reaction recorded a demo in 2011, an EP in 2012 and an LP for Painkiller Records in 2013 which made the year-end top 10 lists of multiple Rev staffers. Recently Tom relocated to Leeds and assembled a full band are the world's premier band that brings straight edge hardcore played with plenty of punk enthusiasm with Oi! and street punk influences mixed in. 2014 finds the band touring stateside with their brother band The Flex as well as recording a debut LP for Revelation Records, the first ever for a non-North American band for the label.
