THE CASUALTIES are the voice of the disenfranchised, the disillusioned and the dispossessed of this planet. These street fighters are still angry, still political and still keep the heart and spirit of Punk alive. This was already the declared aim of THE CASUALTIES, when vocalist Jorge Herrera founded the band together with second singer Colin in the year 1990. Hailing from New York City, they were inspired by early street punks such as THE EXPLOITED, SEX PISTOLS and CHARGED GBH. THE CASUALTIES successfully revived this style with their hard hitting music as well as their visuals and took it to a new level with an impressive track record of eight studio full-lengths, three EPs and three live albums so far. Now the Americans are unleashing "Resistance", taking up their fight against the injustice of a banking system gone berserk, police brutality against peaceful protest and the corporate onslaught on privacy with sixteen songs. "Resistance" fuels the anger of undiluted raw Punk with crunchy riffs and anthemic chants. Add a dash of precise energy from Thrash and a melodic dose of Rock and you end up with an equally catchy and fierce record. "Resistance" is a fist in the face of oppression! THE CASUALTIES are living proof that Punk is not dead, but back!
