The D.C. trio bring the same amount of intensity of their previous band but with an added death metal precision, creating one of the hardest-hitting albums I've heard in a while. In the same vein as P.L.F. and Human Obliteration.''

Next Show : BIB (US) , Monokay (Vienna), Forlorn (Vienna) @ Chelsea


11.07.2024 Hardcore For The Losers show:
BIB (Omaha, Nebraska)
Like the inhabitants of most mid-sized midwestern cities, the people of Omaha are often characterised as being hardworking, fresh and wholesome. Good folk. But there’s nothing wholesome about Bib, a hardcore band who many Omaha locals feel should remain in the basement of that sketchy punk house down the street.
This is noisey, blown out hardcore that some have compared to Hoax and Pissed Jeans. It ain't pretty and it ain't nice.
After the sold-out show at Venster99 last year, they are coming with fresh new LP Biblical released by Quality Control.
MONOKAY (Vienna)
Mosh the Drug, dive the Church hardcore from Vienna. A new force from Vienna. Windmill guaranteed.
FORLORN (Vienna)
Metal and hardcore as an experiment of a dangerous laboratory that wants to destroy the last forces of goodness on earth. Badass people from Vienna.
All ages show
No Presale but Stagedives

Next Show : Judy And The Jerks (US), Shitty Life (IT), Spiritual Law (Linz) @ Rhiz


Hardcore For The Losers with some spicy summer HC vibes.
Save the date, June19, 2024 @ Rhiz
JUDY AND THE JERKS (Mississipi, US - Thrilling Living Records, Refuse Records)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=izPCr6h8viQ
Furious bratty hardcore for true punks.
Fun, energetic punk fucking rock that brings to mind BLATZ and MR. CLIT AND THE PINK CIGARETTES @maxrnr
They write catchy songs that have the skinny sonics of both new wave and 80s hardcore
This band has been given the tagline of “food fight music,” but they have always been more than that one-line description of chaos. Judy and the Jerks are a reminder that punk does not need to be tough or built on upping someone else @post_trash_
SHITTY LIFE (Parma, Italy - 11 PM Records)
https://shittylife.bandcamp.com
"Full of energy, histrionic high-pitched guitars, and consonant screaming vocals very much singing along with the band’s overall rhythm. Reverb and tone changes are on-point, with a good non-stop drumming. Tune your chitarrino for this one." @maxrnr
SPRITUAL LAW (Linz - STTW Records)
https://spirituallaw.bandcamp.com
Midtempo mosh, d-beat and definitely hardcore for the punxxx. Delivering rage from Germany/Austria.

Next Show : Obstruktion (SWE), Tired. (Graz) @ Loop


05.06.2024 Hardcore For The Losers show : 
OBSTRUKTION (Gothenburg, SWEDEN)
Gothenburg, the capital of Swedish hardcore, brings results again. Old friends, who visited us in Vienna with bands such as Anchor, Waste, Gust, Disavow and The Hammer. This time they bring along metallic hardcore reminiscent of bands like Harms Way, Earth Crisis and Obituary. Their 12` LP was released by Berlin's Isolation Records.
It's their first time in Vienna, so it's time to mosh.

TIRED. (Graz, AUSTRIA)
Worn down by the pressures of modern society and navigating the complexities of human values, TIRED. was forged in 2023. Comprising musicians with roots ranging from black metal to stoner rock, our debut album, "The Cost Of Holding On," is out now via Grazil Records.

Next Show : Sukob (CRO), Koridor (CRO), Rolltreppe (Vienna) @ Einbaumöbel

15.05.2024 Hardcore For The Losers show : SUKOB (Hardcore > Punk > Zagreb)
Musically we could place them somewhere along the spectrum of early sharp & punishing Pig Champion's rapid fire riffage and fist-pumping Scandinavian hardcore with hints of Celtic Frost-ish midtempo drives.
KORIDOR (Post Punk > Zagreb)
Hypnotic and repetitive feedback driven post-punk influenced by the 80s ex-Yu punk scene.
ROLLTREPPE ~ RELEASE SHOW ~ (Post Punk > Vienna)
Decidedly a punk band, with a raw, shambolic energy in step with any number of German-language, femme-centered DIY classics from a time well before now—GLUEAMS, HANS-A-PLAST, A-GEN 53 etc.
