Rise Against is a punk rock band from Chicago, Illinois. Formed in 1999, and originally performing under the name Transistor Revolt, they released a self-produced demo entitled Transistor Revolt in 2000, a year before signing with Fat Wreck Chords to release their first two albums, The Unraveling in 2001, and Revolutions Per Minute in 2003. They later switched to Dreamworks Records and recorded their album Siren Song of the Counter Culture.
THE BLACKOUT ARGUMENT has the talent, the work ethics and most of all of the unbreakable passion to do their own thing in a music-scene that increasingly focuses on stereotyping bands playing stereotypical sounds. In September 2007 the Munich-based quintet will release its tensely anticipated debut album “Decisions” on LIFEFORCE RECORDS, building upon the most intense, outspoken and emotional music.
Smash The Statues started in 2003, playing hardcorepunk in the vein of Good Riddance, Strike Anywhere, I Spy and Propagandhi. September 2003 they released their demo, containing four raw hardcorepunk songs. This demo was well recieved in magazines and e-zines. With this demo, many shows were played and at the end of 2004, new tracks for a full length were written. These songs were recorded in Die Tonmeisterei in Oldenburg, Germany.

We're a six piece hailing from Maidstone, Kent. A group of mates hooking up to make some tunes to show the world! We're out to party, so come party with us, we won't disappoint!
1. They were "too much" for Jenny Jones' pro wrestling episode. Damn it, they've even kicked out their own members on occasion. They're Steve Albini and David Yow's favorite band. Maybe they're alien freakazoids too, but they're definitely on a mission. With an atomic mix of violently raw rawkers that Estrus Records would kill to have and the fastest songs this side of 1978, the Traitors are just that, traitors to the world of "punk" they were weened on, so much so that they don't even call it punk. "What kind of music do they play?" LOUD AND FAST.
