Off! to play debut UK shows this week

Off! are all set to head to the UK this week. See below for a full list of their forthcoming dates across Europe. The band have also unveiled a live video for ‘Compared To What’, filmed for Incase Room 205, which can be checked out here. Stay tuned for further installments over the next couple of weeks.

The individual roots established by Keith Morris (Black Flag/Circle Jerks), Dimitri Coats (Burning Brides), Steven McDonald (Redd Kross), and Mario Rubalcaba (Earthless/Hot Snakes/Rocket From the Crypt) are uniquely woven throughout the rock music canon. Each has challenged society’s cyclical and complacent ideals in their own respective bands, and three decades on they’ve never strayed from their intentions. Now they come together as a four-piece called OFF! and they’re as confrontational as ever, lunging inside the aesthetic of West Coast hardcore to push life’s most provocative issues to the forefront. The pinch-hitting First Four EPs mark their explosive approach for a total of 16 songs in just under 18 minutes. The band split its recording into only two sessions, with the first nine songs completed in January 2010, while the latter half was hammered out on August 25th of last year.
