I first saw this band in Amsterdam a while back, without having heard them on record and loved them from the jump.
Last night, Take Offense released their video for “Pain Talks” from their 2013 release United States of Mind (out on Reaper Records). If you like Suicidal Tendencies, you will dig TO’s thrashy, San Diego style hardcore. AH reminds me so much of Mike Muir, it’s insane. Also, please can we talk about Greg’s sunglasses? (Them sh*ts better be Locs…).
Take Offense will be back on our shores in April as part of a month long Euro stint. They’re scheduled to play the Purple Turtle in London on April 15th. See you in the T.O Zone.
