The latest live actions from SUBURBAN SCUM begin today as the band hits the highways alongside Bent Life and Misery supporting the co-headlining Rotting Out and Expire tour, raging through the Western half of the country from March 3rd through the 22nd.SUBURBAN SCUM will also perform on the second day of the New England Metal & Hardcore Fest on Saturday, April 18th with Testament, Exodus, Nuclear Assault, Nails, Indecision, Incendiary and others followed by the first day of the Black N’ Blue Bowl in NYC on May 16th with The Regulators, Candiria, Madball, Earth Crisis, Turnstile and more.
Since 2010 SUBURBAN SCUM has been busy touring abroad in addition to releasing multiple recordings, including their Infernal War EP with Ride The Fury Records, the 2012-released Hanging By A Thread EP on 6131 Records, a split 7” with Incendiary via Closed Casket Activities and most recently a split 12” with Xibalba also on Closed Casket released last year. Their clear-cut delivery is elementally hardcore to the bone; completely enraged and outspoken, with enough metal to make its presence known and not overthrow the core of the songs, their lyrics streetwise but realistic. Having made their presence known on tour with the likes of Expire, Rotting Out, Backtrack, Harm’s Way, Bitter End, Downpresser and many others, and their energetic performances at major festivals including This Is Hardcore, Sound & Fury, United Blood, Rain Fest and more have been well-documented with Youtube visual evidence and mass reports of bodily harm during performances.
