Boston TakeOver Tour 2023 // SLAPSHOT // DEATH BEFORE DISHONOR // AMERICAN WAR MACHINE // RISK
SLAPSHOT is a band shrouded in history, rumors, and urban legend.
Their damn-near twenty year existense has equally divided the hardcore community and united its adherents.
Very few bands have left such a mark that generation after generation of hardcore kids find it incumbent upon themselves to discover SLAPSHOT fresh and new for themselves to give them a foundation for their listening development.
In a scene that so often differentiates sub-genres of old school hardcore between youth crew and tough guy, SLAPSHOT clearly is neither, and decisively both at the same time.
They are straight edge and they are tough.
But they don't share enough with either Youth Of Today or Madball to really serve to further define either sub-genre.
