Straight Edge Hardcore Punk band Insist have signed to Baltimore based React! Records. Insist released their first demo in August last year, and have been on many people's radar since due to the EP's fast, positive, youth crew sound. Arguably one of the best and most promising young bands for this sub-genre of Hardcore in the UK, It is seemingly a perfect fit for the Manchester band to sign with React!, with the label being home to bands such as Mindset, Break Away, Get The Most, Clearsight, Angel Du$t & most recently True Identity, who made our Bandcamp round-up list last month.
The Insist lads are understandably blown away, posting this statement via Facebook:
“React! and it's bands have inspired Insist since day one with such a forward thinking approach to hardcore, we're truly grateful to be part of something so awesome”
Insist have already tied up a recording for React!, which will be put out on 7" EP and is slated for a Spring 2016 release. Insist are also part of the package for the European leg of the final Mindset tour in February, along with True Identity. Check below for the tour dates, and listen to last years Insist demo to get an idea of what to expect in the Spring…
