Purrple Root Beer vinyl out of 70... Due to the unique nature of this pressing, every record will be a slightly different color.
Contrasted by today’s predominantly mosh-centric, heavy hardcore scene, San Diego’s Bent Blue offers a distinctive approach to modern hardcore. The four-piece is fast, but not formulaic. Familiar, but unpredictable. Melodic without lacking in rage.
While often drawing comparisons to bands like Lifetime, Fugazi, and Dag Nasty, you will most-frequently hear the terms “DC style” and “Revolution Summer” being used to describe their dissonant, emotive sound. With one foot in the past and the other firmly planted in the present, Bent Blue fit right in with their contemporaries Fiddlehead, Sunstroke, Anxious, and Praise.
Further strengthening these sentiments is the band’s latest release on Southern California’s WAR Records — an expanded vinyl release of their 2020 demo, Between Your and You’re, remastered and featuring two newly recorded tracks, one of which features a cover of Washington DC’s own Gray Matter. With an additional 12” record set to release in 2022, Bent Blue prove that they are a band to watch, and are definitely just heating up.
