Resist Records news


Laura Jane Grace will be signing copies of her book “Tranny: Confessions of Punk Rock?’s Most Infamous Anarchist Sellout” at Resist on May 11 from 4.00pm – 5.30pm.

A searing account of her search for identity and true self, Tranny reveals the struggles and victories that Laura Jane Grace, the lead singer of Against Me! experienced in her quest for gender transition.

Illuminated by Laura Jane’s never-before-published journal entries reaching back to childhood, Tranny is an intensely personal and revelatory look inside her struggles with identity and addiction. Grappling with everything from sex, drugs, failed marriages, music, and soul of a punk rock star, this memoir paints a vivid portrait of one of the most revolutionary transgender icons of our time.

Composed between and throughout bouts of physical and mental duress “Desire” is a story told in four parts. Desire thematically revolves around realisation and acceptance and is a glimpse into the often complicated and challenging process of personal growth.

Desire is musically more metallic and heavier than previous Choke releases. Tinges of death and thrash metal combine with the band’s previous powerviolence and punk influences to form an even bleaker and grinding musical landscape than the one found on 2016’s ‘Left With Nothing’ LP.

To achieve the desired audio assault the band enlisted Taylor Young (Nails, Twitching Tongues, Xibalba) to mix, Dan Randall (Left For Dead, Magrudergrind, 86 Mentality) to master and Luke Dolan (The Dead Walk!, Life.Love.Regret, Arms Reach) to provide a guest vocal appearance.

Desire brings to a close almost two years of trying to get better. Getting better by accepting the past, letting go and moving forward.

Resist Records welcomes Bare Bones to its roster. Their debut album “Bad Habits” will be released on May 19.

All swagger and recklessness, Bare Bones bring an intensity to Australian punk/rock that belies the fact that they’ve only got two EP’s under their belt. A suspenseful maelstrom of off-kilter guitars a-la Every Time I Die, this is sweaty and visceral feisty rock music that bears shades of The Bronx at their most relentless. 

“Bad Habits” is a natural progression from Bare Bones’ two EP releases ‘Villians’ and ‘Cut Throat Living’. There’s more melodic dynamics in these songs, but they’re balanced by tones and riffs more crushing than ever.

Resist Records welcomes Year Of The Rat to it’s roster. Their debut album “Hell Bent” will be released on April 21.

After years of slogging away in practice spaces and riff dens in Melbourne, Year of the Rat have finally crawled out from their burrow of shredding pits and come up with their debut album, “Hell Bent”. “Hell Bent” is 10 tracks of “trying not to sound like everyone else, but still liking that shit”, taking cues from Merauder, Disfear, SOD, Suicidal Tendancies and All Out War.

Featuring members of Most Precious Blood, I Exist, Hitlist, Blkout and The Daylight Curse, they’ve been in bands, they know what they like and don’t like and they are stoked to unleash these ratty pits onto the masses. Like pits, riffs and double kick bits? Year of the Rat have got you covered.

After the unleashing of ‘Forced To Regress’ back in 2014, SHACKLES have only doubled down and intensifed on all fronts. Their blastbeat soden, grind tinged hardcore has been forced deeper into the earsockets of every state of Australia, via numerous tours and festival slots in 2014 and 15′, and abroad via tours in both New Zealand and Europe in 2016. The band has refused to slow down or deviate at all from what it does best in channelling sheer aggression.

While constantly playing the band has kept a steady drip feed of smaller releases coming via 2015s ‘West Coast Live Destruction’ live tape, (via a split release of Castigated and Televised Suicide Records,) and last years split 10″ with LA powerviolence crew FISSURE, (Dead Heroes Records).

This year however will see the band returning home to Resist Records and dropping their largest slab of material since ‘Forced To Regress’ in the form of ‘LIFELESS PARADISE’. Harshly stripping away any flab and consolidating the bands sound to its most primal elements ‘LIFELESS PARADISE’ clocks in at a lean 17 minutes of complete unmitigated fury, hatred and despair and further cements SHACKLES as one of countries most distinct powerhouses in extreme music.

On ‘Now That I Have Seen I Am Responsible’, Vices have taken things up a notch, and the results are arresting. Developed over more than a year, the tracks adopt an equally personal and political tone. Written amongst a backdrop of global political and social upheaval and relationship breakdowns closer to home, the band have crafted a raw and righteous release that places them at the forefront of intelligent local hardcore, aimed at delivering comfort and solidarity through hardcore. Thematically, it addresses threats to human rights, religious divisions and mental health struggles.

Produced by Jay Maas (Defeater, Bane, Verse, Counterparts), this LP is the band’s first project working with a professional producer. Vocalist John McAleer says “Jay is a savage when it comes to making music. He keeps it real, he likes the imperfections but also knows when to push for something better, and he understood what we were trying to do and made the whole thing come to life.” That they found the experience productive and rewarding is evident in the punchy power of these recordings.
