The Insurgence began in 2004 in the rain soaked city of Seattle, WA. They quickly gained a reputation as one of the hardest working bands in the Northwest. Gaining
such attentioned landed them support slots for such heavy hitters as RANCID, DROPKICK MURPHY'S, CIRCLE JERKS, SUBHUMANS, US BOMBS, ZEKE, AVAIL, MISFITS, & STREET DOGS just to name a few.
It didnt take long for people to take notice and the guys were in the studio with legendary producer Jack Endino (Nirvana, Dwarves, Zeke, Valient Thorr) working on material for an upcoming full length. What was squeezed out of those sessions was also the four songs that appear here on the "Never Surrender" ep. Jumping out at you like nothing you've come accostomed to from the traditional "Seattle Sound", The Insurgence crank it up a notch, or two, or three, well quite frankly I think they crank it up to the proverbial 11.
They also got the attention of booking agent Ron Martinez of Crawlspace Booking through Jibo's old friend and a&r guy for SOS Records Todd Radict (of the band The Radicts). That led to an opening slot in Seattle for THE CASUALTIES. This was the kind of crowd that thrives for the kind of brutality that The Insurgence deliver live. Keep your eyes peeled for tour dates and for one of the best live bands around today.
The release will be available in download form, cd, and multi-colored vinyl. There will also be ranomly inserted cds into the 7" version so you'll get both versions for the price of one, but only while supplies last.
