Resist Records welcomes Rage to its roster. Their debut EP “Feel The Burn” will be released on September 8.

Originally conceived as a means to fill in free time as other bands slowed down, Rage was formed in mid-2016 and immediately got to work. Shows started to be booked after only a couple of rehearsals and a well received demo tape followed shortly after. Since then, Rage has been hard at work piecing together new music whilst playing shows with a wide range of Australian and International bands both locally and interstate.

With the release of “Feel The Burn”, Rage aim to deliver 5 cuts of slamming hardcore punk, influenced by American hardcore greats, British punks and Australia’s hardest bands. Initial production of the record was handled by Blake Ohlback (Choke, Homesick) and the record was then mixed by Chris Corry (No Tolerance, The Rival Mob) before being mastered by Dan Randall (86 Mentality, The Flex).

Resist Records welcomes Reactions to its roster. Their new album “March Of Dissolution” will be released on June 30.

“March Of Dissolution” is a scathing review of the world in its current state. Corporate greed, racism, morality and mental illness are all tackled on Reaction’s Resist debut, set to a backdrop of pounding drums, powerful riffs and Lachy Pitcher’s impassioned vocal delivery. 

“March Of Dissolution” was engineered by Lachy Pitcher, mixed and mastered by Shane Edwards at Karma Studios.

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.
