“No Pride” is the riotous new track to be released from Marching On, the second LP from UK-based hardcore/oi outfit, VIOLENT REACTION, as the album nears its street date at the end of the month, on the exact day the band begins their upcoming US tour. The third track from the band’s first release for the mighty Revelation Records, with its empowering gang chants, vibrant energy and ultra-tight and aggressive attack, is a perfect introduction to the band’s agenda, and a prime example of why this band is unquestionably one of the top-tier acts of their scene.
A must-hear for disciples of Negative Approach, Blitz, The 4-Skins, Straight Ahead and 86 Mentality, Marching On will see release through Revelation Records on March 31st.
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 -- of which multiple pressings have been sold -- 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 US tours with Hounds Of Hate and brother band, The Flex, under their belts.
