Earth Crisis

Despite what you may think of latter Earth Crisis (personally not a fan), their first EP Firestorm is a classic of its time. The iconic title track, opening with its unforgettable "chug-chug" open string rhythm, set the tone for so many bands to come, reshaping much of the hardcore landscape in its time.

Now, 20 years later, Earth Crisis are celebrating the anniversary of said EP on a set of dates that include a stop at Santos Party House on July 14 with Shai Hulud (now with Chad Gilbert back in the fold), Thy Will Be Done, White Widows Pact (fka White Widows) and The Last Stand. Tickets are still available.

All tour dates are listed, along with a new White Widows video for "El Marrano" and Earth Crisis favorite "Firestorm," below.

Breakdown at Public Assembly - 12/22/12
Breakdown

NYHC vets Breakdown, whose 1987 demo was one of the most important NYHC releases, reunited with the lineup that recorded that demo for a show at Public Assembly this past Saturday (12/22), which BrooklynVegan proudly presented. The show was with Long Island hardcore greats Incendiary, and pictures of both bands are in this post, along with pictures of openers The Last Stand (none of Get Involved or Shell Shock though).

Breakdown's '87 demo was just released on vinyl for the first time ever, courtesy of 540 Records. Before the show, we sat down with guitarist Carl Porcaro and if you missed that interview, you can check it out HERE.

Carl with Kings Destroy at Saint Vitus, July 2011 (more by Fred Pessaro // BBG)
Kings Destroy
It goes without saying that Breakdown's 1987 demo will go down as one of the most important releases in hardcore. The band's toxic brew of negative hardcore and metal influenced legions of fans and bands, eventually spawning hardcore as we know it today. If you haven't heard it, make sure and pick up a copy when the demo is released on vinyl for the first time ever via 540 Records.

The 1987 lineup splintered in the years that followed, with member Carl Porcaro going on to form what would eventually become Killing Time. Having played Chaos in Tejas and This is Hardcore earlier this year, it isn't till now, 25 years after the fact, that the demo lineup is resurfacing to play their first NYC show on Saturday at Public Assembly (12/22). Look for supporting slots from Long Island hardcore favorites Incendiary, as well as The Last Stand, Get Involved and Shell Shock. Tickets are still available.

With this monumental reunion on the horizon, we cornered Breakdown guitarist Carl Porcaro about the reunion as well as about Killing Time and Kings Destroy. The results of that conversation are below.

Youth of Today @ Acheron
Youth of Today

Formerly of New Haven, Connecticut, [Revelation Records] is now based in Huntington Beach, California. It was founded in 1987 by owner Jordan Cooper, along with Ray Cappo of Youth of Today, with the sole intent of producing the Warzone Lower East Side Crew 7". Within the year, they put out two more releases and a limited 4th pressing of Youth of Today's Can't Close My Eyes 7", which had been originally released on Positive Force Records, just for the two of them to trade for vintage G.I.Joes and other action figures. In the first three years, the label put out 23 releases and pressed approximately 50,000 records, and it has continued to release an average of 7-8 albums a year.

Cappo left the business in 1988, to focus on his band Shelter and to start his own label Equal Vision Records (which he later sold to Youth Of Today roadie, former Revelation employee and friend, Steve Reddy), though his albums were still released by Revelation after that, and he also operated Supersoul Records.

The label put out several definitive hardcore and metalcore records in the late 1990s and early 2000s, with notable releases coming from Damnation A.D., Will Haven, Shai Hulud, Curl Up and Die, and Himsa. However, by the mid-2000s, Revelation Records had seemingly fallen by the wayside, with very few releases between 2004 and 2006.

Revelation released a few records since then, most recently the Mouthpiece retrospective Can't Kill What's Inside: The Complete Discography. The label will celebrate its 25th anniversary with a trio of shows at Glasshouse in Pomona, CA in June, featuring Youth Of Today, Gorilla Biscuits, Underdog, No For An Answer and Statue, with "more Rev alumni to be announced." Despite the fact that Revelation was formed on the East Coast and a good number of the participating bands are too, so far it doesnt look like the celebration will be bi-coastal. We'll let you know if that changes though. Meanwhile, tickets go on sale March 1st for Gorilla Biscuits with Youth of Today on 6/8 and 6/9 (No For An Answer is also on 6/9), and Gorilla Biscuits with Underdog & Statue on 6/10.

In related news, Breakdown, who was on the Revelation compilation New York City Hardcore: The Way It Is (with Youth of Today, Bold, Gorilla Biscuits, Warzone and others) will play Chaos in Tejas with their 87 demo lineup (their first show like that in 25 years). Also no NYC shows for them at the moment.

Meanwhile, The Last Stand open up for Madball, Maximum Penalty, Dead End Path, and Suburban Scum TONIGHT (1/20) at Gramercy Theater. Tickets are still available.

The Last Stand supported Youth of Today and Mouthpiece when the pair played a surprise show at Acheron in 2011. A set of belated pictures from Acheron are in this post, along with the Pomona show flyers. More below...

Yot

After the boat cruise on Saturday, my original plan was to hit Santos for Youth of Today but that was before I heard about the surprise show at the infinitely smaller Acheron later that night (10/22). Featuring appearances from The Last Stand (mem Inhuman) and Mouthpiece, the show sold out around 12 midnight with 150 lucky people crammed into the venue. I caught some of The Last Stand's NYHC before slipping out to catch a drink and returning in time for Youth of Today. As tight as ever, the "youth" crew played many highlights from their catalog including the entire Disengage 7", "Break Down The Walls", "Flame Still Burns", "Positive Outlook", "Take A Stand", and even a cover of "Minor Threat". Though the band was tight and well-executed, I noticed that Ray Cappo's screaming voice was gone, a fact that wasn't apparent at the Mohawk show during Chaos in Tejas. How was it at Santos? Regardless, the crowd was beyond pumped and so was I.

Pictures are on the way. Meanwhile check out the videos below...
