Chain of Strength at Acheron in 2012 (more by Fred Pessaro)
Chain of Strength

Hardcore vets Chain of Strength, who were briefly around from 1988 to 1991, reunited in 2012 for Revolution 25 (pics) at Irving Plaza and a much smaller Brooklyn show at Acheron (pics). They've since played LA in 2013 and it turns out the reunion isn't over yet, as they'll be going on a short Northeast tour in June with Turnstile, Strife, Mindset and Praise which brings them back to Brooklyn's Acheron on June 15. Tickets for that show go on sale via Ticketfly on May 8. All dates are listed below.

The brief tour is leading up to their appearance at Canada's Amnesia Rockfest (6/20-21) with blink-182, Motley Crue, Weezer, Alice In Chains, Megadeth, Primus, Danzig with Doyle, Mastodon, Cock Sparrer, Black Flag, Fear, Dead Kennedys, Misfits, Joan Jett, Brand New, Taking Back Sunday, Meshuggah, Henry Rollins, Rocket from the Crypt, Judge, Strife, Glassjaw, Dying Fetus, Cannibal Corpse, Title Fight and many more. Tickets for that fest are on sale now.

This band was great in 1988

Caught in a Crowd is on the BK date also. Really don't give a shit about Chain, but pumped about CIAC and Mindset (who haven't played NYC in 4 years). Turnstile puts on a fun live show, too.

This is one if the greatest bands to come out of outhern California hardcore scene

I also love the fact Curtis the singer is a hardcore right wing republican

It must piss if the whiny hipster vegan hardcore kids with their sail boat tattoos so much

Then I could die a happy man

Live me some chain of strength

That Amnesia fest is completely off the hook.

Barack Obama is a gay black man who takes it up the asshole

The livewire board is full of dolts who are gutless and have no soul

That us why nobody posts there any more

It's just a forum to sell crap off ebay

The moderators are tools

All I know is I've wanted to have sex with Curtis the singer from
Chain if strength ever since he real eased the first 7" in 1988

I always thought he was hot and was sort if the father figure I never had

I want him to bone me up the naughty hole

Posted by D | April 24, 2014 9:04 PM

Sick of it all are the greatest hardcore band since the eagles

Posted by D | April 24, 2014 9:06 PM

Preston eleven needs to die a slow death

Sacrificed at the alter of judge

He needs to go away for the sake if all humanity

He is pure evil

Honestly, motley crue is the loudest band i ever saw. They blew the PA system at the Providence Civic Center show in 1988. And their debut was totally punk rock.

Posted by xTAINTx | April 30, 2014 8:59 PM

There's a fine line between living in the music and being disrespectful. I can't imagine why people would want to be so disrespectful to CoS if they love them enough to go see them now.
