Interview with Josh Sinder from THE INSURGENCE; New album Elimi-Nation out now on Innerstrength Records @theinsurgence
PUNK FUCKING ROCK! That’s what I’m talking about! Washington’s The Insurgence offer what every beaten down, worn out, angry-as-hell punker needs in their life: Blasting tempos, gruff vocals, and enough high-octane crunch to set any venue on fire. If the world was all roses, we’d have no need for such things, but it sort of makes me happy knowing that we’re an imperfect species on an imperfect planet, and constructive ways of release like The Insurgence are out there.
New York City is one of the Mecca’s for hardcore punk. The fast pace and volatility of such a dense environment continues to provide a rich stomping ground for innumerable punk and hardcore acts. I mean, what better place to rebel than the greatest city in the world? That being said, it is of no surprise that The Casualties would eventually come together to create one of the hardest working punk acts still around today.
