Here at UTG we cover a lot of types of music, a majority of which is already either somewhat popular or in the public eye. I personally love finding bands that nobody knows, because frankly I feel ahead of the curve once they strike it big. Now I’m from DC, and one of the greatest pleasures of living in such an interesting (and sometimes weird) city is that I get to see and meet tons of bands that have such a variety of tastes. I’d like to introduce you to one of your new favorite hardcore bands from the District of Colombia: Thick Skin.
Playing some of the fastest hardcore you’ve heard in a while, they are really young, but that isn’t an excuse for a lack of quality. After a quick lineup change the band have polished their sound into an onslaught of lyrics, blasts, and in-your-face guitars. Want something heavy? Got it. Insightful lyrics? Yep. Thick Skin have something for everyone, and it makes me really happy and proud to share their newest release with you. The members of the band are some of the most genuine people I’ve ever met, so it makes me even happier to support this group.
You can click through the break to stream the release, but make sure you check them out on Facebook here to get updates as to when they are playing shows as well as info on their future releases.
