Opposition Rising

Opposition Rising

Opposition Rising, formed in December 2010 by four well-seasoned veterans of the Boston Punk and Hardcore scene, featuring members of Toxic Narcotic and Mouth Sewn Shut! The band formed with the intent of mixing their favorite elements from all the sub-genres of Punk into one aggressive and brutal yet catchy sound with a strong DIY ethic and intelligent lyrics! A few months after forming the band they began playing around the Boston area and working on their first record ‘Aftermathematics’. Once the record had been released Opposition Rising tore up and down USA with full coastal tours on both East and West as well as frequent gigs in their home town of Boston.  Towards the end of 2012 Opposition Rising began to work on their follow up release, on 10″ vinyl, otherwise known as ‘Get Off Your Ass, Get Off Your Knees’. They stayed true to the hardcore DIY ethic/sound with the 5 track EP remaining deeply political and anarchic. To coincide with the release of the 10″ vinyl Opposition Rising set off on a 5 week tour of USA, strengthening the connections with the underground scene. The future holds more tours, hopefully a venture across the Atlantic and a hell of a lot more releases. stay tuned.
