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)
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)
"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)
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 : 
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.

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.

Next Show : Raein (IT), Loser Year (Linz), Love Embassy (Vienna) @ Rhiz

27.04.24 Hardcore For The Losers show :
After 9 years and a sold-out concert in Venster99, the legendary super screamo power RAEIN are back in Vienna. Definitely one of the classics of Italian hardcore/punk . For the all fans of the archetypal screamo sound popularized by Gravity Records in the late '90s and I can't get over it that the Orchid, Saetia and pg99 era is over.
Support by Linz Vienna connection : LOSER YEAR and LOVE EMBASSY

NEW LOCATION : Next Show : Viva Belgrado (ES), Yarostan (FR), ARGON (Vienna) @ DAS Lot

10.04.2024 ACHTUNG ACHTUNG. New Location @ DAS Lot
Hardcore For The Losers show :
We bring skramz at Das Lot big way. I'm happy to have released 2 bands from this lineup and luckily it coincided that Yarostan and Viva Belgrado need the same date for Vienna.
♧ VIVA BELGRADO (Córdoba, Andalusia) "Viva Belgrado are a four-piece screamo/post-hardcore/post-rock band from Córdoba, Spain that began in 2012. Sonically, they play heavily into their post-rock influences, with melodic, delayed guitars slathered in reverb and tons of tremolo picking. In quieter moments, they also incorporate some spoken word. When the songs build up, they hit their screamo peaks, with throat-searing vocals and powerful instrumentals. They slightly eschew their screamo roots for a cleaner sound, with a mix of singing and sing-speaking taken the forefront. There's some clear La Dispute influence here, especially with the vocal flows and post-hardcore instrumental leanings. This band crafts some absolutely beautiful songs, and are a prime example of how emotion can transcend language." by : sophiesfloorboard
◇ YAROSTAN (Marseille, France) "The name Yarostan comes from the epistolary novel Letters of Insurgents, published in 1976 as a collective work of Fredy and Lorraine Perlman. In this beautiful and revolutionary inspiring collection, Yarostan Vochek and Sophia Nachalo are one-time lovers in an unnamed Eastern Bloc country who later find themselves on opposite sides of the Iron Curtain. Sharing anarchist ideals and lives in revolt, they start corresponding in pursuit of an insurgent path to liberation. [The band] Yarostan’s lyrics in French conceptualize on Perlman’s and other XX century to modern day anti-authoritarian philosophical leanings, creating a passionate, diverse and dynamic post-hardcore record with a deeply meaningful message. The five perplexing and long-winded pieces build, release and explode with a dazzling amalgamation of calming melody and chaos, as it works well for the genre.Today, screamo and post-hardcore acts with a heavy or underlying emphasis on post-rock elements are favored by many music publications going in lengths about each individual track on their records and how they relate to snobby genre standards. In the case of an obscure and outspokenly political band like Yarostan, it is rather unlikely to be featured in any bigger media, but this particular style of music is the perfect emotional response applicable to their passionate poetry and influences. " by : diyconspiracy
♡ ARGON (Vienna, Luxembourg) Under the band name ‘Argon’, Dave, Jeremi and Sam have been working on an individualised hardcore, screamo style, mingled with elements of post-rock, ambient and experimental sounds inspired by the beauty of nature and folklore

HC4L054 XDistanteX - Cada Acción Cuenta EP 7" (2024)


The new Hardcore For The Losers release : XdistanteX - Cada Acción Cuenta , is out. All money from the purchase of this release will go directly to the account of one of the most important independent autonomous music venues in Europe - Venster99.

Paypal is here :

(pay as much as you want and the Records will be sent every Monday.)

A few words about the release .

"The music underground is global. DISTANTE shows that it also lives in Argentina. "Cada Acci​ó​n Cuenta" (English : "Every action counts") is the second EP of the band from Buenos Aires. The six songs contained in it are sung in Spanish. Or better: shouted at. Because the singer sends positive messages to the world with unmistakable fury.

The lyrics talk, among other things: about raising a voice for those who don't have one ("Es Por Ellos"), or celebrating subculture as a space for creative development ("Tiempo de Unidad"). One of the most important messages remains in the spirit of the Youth Crew idea: the key to change can always be found within oneself (“La Llave”). Hardcore, here punctuated by punk-style melodic additions, again has a constructive note. The fact that half a dozen songs consistently hit the mark in under two minutes keeps the energy level consistently high - and makes "Cada Acci​ón​n Cuenta" a feast for DIY and Posicore students alike. "

500 records, different colours with lyric sheet.

NEW LOCATION : Next Show : Mutually Assured Destruction (US), Avalanche (Vienna) @ Rhiz

So, it is happening, a new era on the hardcore scene in Vienna. Venster99 closed the door, the so called "Red Vienna" has once again shown itself to be anything but red and that it only understands the language of capitalism.
Fortunately, we did not cancel the concert due to the wholehearted help of the Rhiz.
The entrance fee will be 15 euros, and if you are willing, add any extra it will be paid directly to Venster99, so that we can push through these difficult days and let them see that we are there, existing . And we are massive, and freaking angry. Everyone on Monday 12.02.24 @ Rhiz.
Hardcore For The Losers presents USHC on Triple - B Records ♤ MUTUALLY ASSURED DESTRUCTION ♤
"The self-proclaimed "crossover doom" band — fronted by Ace Stallings, the ex-frontman of the straight-edge unit Break Away — are using hardcore's thrashier side as a foundation and building upon it with groove-metal riffage, Sabbathian chord progressions and Stallings' Southern-fried croon, which recalls singers like Corrosion of Conformity's Pepper Keenan, Life of Agony's Mina Caputo and Crowbar's Kirk Windstein."
+ Viennese finest heavyweight champions.
