"NEVER A LOST CAUSE"
BRIDGEWAY ENTERTAINMENT / RED CORD RECORDS
UNDER CITIES is a crushing Hardcore band hailing from Reno, Nevada. Theses guys
started back in 2011 under the original name DRESSED IN WHITE and soon changed
their name to UNDER CITIES were they really exploded in the Hardcore scene. "NEVER
A LOST CAUSE" is the bands first full length that came out back in January 2014. These
guys are definitely a full on Hardcore band, but they have that same aggression and energy
that a lot of Death Metal bands have so i could see a lot of Metal fans really getting into
these guys as well. The music is done in an old school Hardcore way, but with some
modern twists on their sound. I can hear a lot of that killer D.I.Y. style and sound from
back in the early '80's seeping into their sound. It reminds me of a lot of the Hardcore that
was coming out of New York, New Jersey, Philadelphia & Washington D.C. back then.
There is a dirty, gritty and raw street sound to their music. They have a lot of cool
breakdowns and scream along chants in their songs, which I love a lot. The crunchy guitars
is where I feel they get some of their Metal type influences from. Any old school
Hardcore fan would love these guys and should have these guys in their collection. If you
were to take parts of SICK OF IT ALL, SHEER TERROR, BLACK FLAG,
CRO-MAGS, AGNOSTIC FRONT & some BRICK BY BRICK and mix them together
you would get a great idea of what UNDER CITIES is bringing to the table. I loved these
guys and can't wait to hear more from them in the future. These guys would fit in really
well on the three day THIS IS HARDCORE FEST that happens in Philadelphia every
year. Check these guys out!
