Holy smokes! “Leave Me Out” from UK-based hardcore act Violent Reaction is totally kick ass! Definitely paying tribute to old-school, the track can be streamed at Noisey, and will be on the band’s upcoming album, Marching On, scheduled for release on March 31st.
Marching On marks Violent Reactions second LP and first on Revelation Records. Pre-orders will start come March.
About Violent Reaction:
Originally conceived and executed as a one-man project by Tom Pimlott on the banks of the Mersey River in Liverpool, Violent Reaction is already responsible for several well-received recordings since its 2011 inception. Through an initial demo, a self-titled EP through Quality Control Records and reissued by 6131 Records, the Painkiller Records-released 2013 debut LP, City Streets, and 2014-released Dead-End EP, also through Painkiller, the Oi-influenced, straightedge, hardcore streetpunk vitality of these works now sees the name Violent Reaction a centerpiece of the current UK scene. Pimlott has recently relocated to Leeds and expanded the outfit to a full lineup, which has already hit the ground at full steam, including U.S. tours with Hounds Of Hate and brother band, The Flex, under their belts.
