Trash Talk Announce US Tour * Dates w/ Every Time I Die and more!

Trash Talk
Announce US Tour w/ Alpha & Omega * Dates w/ Every Time I Die, Ruiner, and More!

Sounds like hardcore refrigerator magnet poetry, right? That shit goes down like rancid butter as screamed by Trash Talk’s two vocalists, who themselves ride atop a brakeless garbage truck compacting grimy old-school hardcore, breakneck grindcore assaults and some dangerous sludge breakdowns. -

You'll find a lifetime's worth of intensity, noise, and pent up anger on Trash Talk's self-titled new album... Easily the bleakest, most confrontational set of Trash Talk jams yet. - Revolver Magazine

When Trash Talk ask you to claw your way up to the front and scream along to the lyrics, it's hard to say no. - Decibel Magazine

2008 has been a triumphant year for Trash Talk: A debut full-length on their own Trash Talk Collective (produced by the mighty Steve Albini), US tours w/ Cold World and Iron Age, performances at Sound and Fury and F Yeah Fest, w/ a set at Fun Fun Fun Fest to follow (performing w/ Bad Brains, Young Widows, Bouncing Souls, Flipper, Dead Milkmen, Integrity, DOA, Cro-Mags and more), not to mention the band's current European tour w/ hard-core super heroes Paint it Black.

Now, as we head towards the last part of what just seemed like a brand new year, the good dudes in Trash Talk grace us w/ their presence to make sure we have our dose of unparalleled rage and conviction before all is said and done.

Trash Talk are, to many, the best thing happening in the punk and hardcore community today. Their mix of equal parts skate-thrash, speed metal, crust and 80's hardcore, combined w/ their completely pissed-off lyrics and highest-energy live show, make for one of the greatest bands to both see live and listen to, as in today's crumbling America, it's easy to relate to their animosity and bleak outlook. That said, much like punching a pillow (or more precisely, a wall), Trash Talk is also the cure to any fits of rage.

* Trash Talk tour the US w/ Alpha & Omega, and meet up w/ friends Every Time I Die, Bracewar, Ruiner, New Lows and more. Full tourdates below:
