“WHEN WE GROW, WE GROW TOGETHER…” THE STORY OF THE NEW HARDCORE PUNK LABEL: 11PM RECORDS! by @razorbladesandaspirin 

Label: 11PM Records

How did your band start?

The band materialized in 2016 and we had all been friends for many years at that point. Geoff and Ronnie had been playing in bands together most of their adulthood. A band Ronnie was doing with Ahmad and a different band with Geoff had both coincidentally ended. Ahmad and Geoff had always talked about doing some real ass nasty hardcore since our town didn’t really have much of that going on so the timing was pretty serendipitous. JC inherited some bass gear and the pieces just all kind of came together naturally.

How would you describe your sound?

It’s just raw hardcore. Trying to keep it fresh while staying true to what we love about the genre. We take influences from a few different sounds of the 80s, mostly YDI, old school NYHC and Japanese punk on our most recent material. We do a cool mix up of everything we like and therefore it can be tough to put a specific descriptor on it, speaking for myself. You can probably find a good chunk of our ideas on records like A Place in the Sun and Victim in Pain.
