Emerging from the vibrant hardcore scene of Washington, DC, Backlash release new EP



Emerging from the vibrant hardcore scene of Washington, DC, Backlash announces the release of their explosive new EP. Formed less than a year ago, Backlash has quickly made a name for themselves, playing numerous shows across the mid-Atlantic region, including a memorable performance at Disturbing the Peace Fest in Baltimore and opening the DC show on the Chisel/Homefront/Conservative Military Image tour.


About the EP: This six-song self-released tape showcases Backlash’s raw energy and uncompromising sound. Drawing heavy influences from iconic NYHC bands such as Dmize, mid-era Agnostic Front, and Killing Time, as well as DCHC legends like Striking Distance, Void, and Swiz, Backlash delivers a relentless auditory assault that pays homage to hardcore’s roots while carving out their own niche in the genre.


Backlash’s sound is a powerful blend of intense riffs, aggressive vocals, and mosh-inducing breakdowns. One of the band’s favorite comparisons is being described as “Swiz with mosh parts,” a testament to their dynamic fusion of melody and brutality. With their rallying cry of "DCHC til we die, hardcore for hardcore," Backlash embodies the unity and spirit of the hardcore community, resonating deeply with punks and skins alike.
