THE CASUALTIES are about to kick off a string of dates on the Iberian peninsula. The original New York street punks are scheduled to wreck seven venues in Spain and lay waste to two more in Portugal. Don’t miss their high energy call for resistance!
Punk is dead? THE CASUALTIES never cared about such bullshit. Once again the New York stalwarts give voice to the street with a three fists full of smashing anthems. In an age of austerity, corporate takeover of this planet, and rising anger ‘Chaos Sound’ bristles with counter-culture rage translated into energetic riffing, barking vocals and a heavy dose of rock. Fierce but always melodic, THE CASUALTIES remain a far cry from teenage poster-boy industry created sell-outs that have become associated with their style. Instead the New Yorkers openly draw inspiration from the early Punk legends such as THE EXPLOITED, SEX PISTOLS and CHARGED GBH. THE CASUALTIES are the real thing. Since vocalist Jorge Herrera founded the band together with second singer Colin in 1990, their declared aim has always been to keep the heart and spirit of Punk alive. Supporting the disenfranchised, the disillusioned, and the dispossessed against the ruling one percent through artistic means, THE CASUALTIES have never relented as their massive track record of nine studio full-lengths, three EPs and three live albums proves. Now ‘Chaos Sound’ continues where ‘Resistance’ (2012) left off with another smasher in the face of oppression. Older and maybe a bit wiser, THE CASUALTIES even dare to pay a cunning double tribute with a cover version of MOTÖRHEAD’s homage to the sadly deceased Ramones. Punk is not dead. THE CASUALTIES deliver the crushing proof of that statement with ‘Chaos Sound’. Listen and rise up!
