Strike Anywhere Chorus of One

Combining the anthemic stomp of East Coast metallic hardcore and the melody and frantic billions beats an hour pace of '80s youth crew punk, Richmond, VA's Strike Anywhere present themselves as a cross between Sick of it All, Gorilla Biscuits and 7 Seconds. Hailing from the same turf as Avail probably hasn't hurt either. This EP is five parts blistering melodic hardcore and one part Dag Nasty-tinged emo core. Watch for a full-length later this year.
