Making new friends on tour is the best; it’s also a great way to discover new music, coming from local scenes—vibrant and unknown.
This is how I discovered the guys from All Over the Face—high-energy hardcore crossover band from Zürich, Switzerland. They gave us a hand with organizing a show in the legendary Koch Areal squat in their city for the Feedbacker/Calf 2018 tour. It was a great night, we had a good gig and I ended up with new friends, new vinyls and a few compliments on my beard.
All Over The Face are a complete storm live—shredding guitars, 90’s hardcore high-pitched vocals, technical super fast drumming, what’s not to like! Like A Bull In A China Shop is their first album, and I have to say it captures their spirit pretty well.
Seven tracks that leave no time to take a breath. AOTF’s style is cheerfully eclectic and pretty mixed up, but if you like energetic political hardcore with tons of thrash influences, plus some mathcore weirdness thrown in for a good measure—then you’re in for a treat!
Check this out and score a vinyl directly from the band!
