ON will play Friday 18th of September.

ON is a hardcore band from Seattle, featuring members of Champion, Go It Alone and other well-known hardcore punk outfits. With their positive attitude these guys have something to say about Western society these days but without blaming everyone except themselves.

As they say in their song ‘Falling Apart’: “We have been living outside our means. Our ability to reason traded for greed. I know I’m at fault for playing the game. We’ve got to wake up and change.” These are very relevant, really self-conscious lyrics.  And best of all: The lyrics are backed by very energetic hardcore, just the way it should be. These guys have something to say, and they bring their message across  with appropriate anger, without losing melody out of sight.
