Greek crust hardcore punks PROCRASTINATE transcend life’s absurdity by constructing a harsh, yet inspiring aesthetic

1 min read

Over the course of last 3 years, Karditsa, Greece based crust hardcore band PROCRASTINATE have released a pair of EPs, and now they’re back with a proper 12” long player, which we’re pleased to premiere below! PROCRASTINATE strike a balance between melodic crust and dark hardcore with a legitimate sensibility that could sit comfortably on the bitter-sweet soundtrack to modern times. A crisis-fueled record straight out of Europe’s “love to hate” country. This is the tale of a modern human’s daily struggle to cope with life’s absurdity and to make all dreams of rebellion reality. Beware the time of change. Listen below.

PROCRASTINATE are plotting a European tour for this November. Contact the band via procrastinate_band[at] and stay tuned for more details on that trek.

The band commented:

Procrastinate was formed in 2013 at Karditsa, Greece. At first, it was a project of two people in need to express themselves through extreme music and put out their ideas and beliefs. Later things got more serious and we became a five-piece and highly active group. We place ourselves among the DIY hardcore punk scene and perform only in autonomous spaces and squats which promote an anti-authoritarian, anti-racist, anti-sexist and self-organized way of life. Our lyrics draw inspiration from everyday life issues, social & political crisis, personal situations and ethics. We’ve been described as metallic hardcore, crust-grind, crust punk, hardcore punk, but we’re not that into genres. It’s going to have to be the listener who decides. We’ve released two EPs, the “Subjugated Herd” CD and the “Ideals to Burn” 7” by ourselves in collaboration with several distros & labels. We always look for playing as many gigs as possible and tour abroad.

Our first full length work, the “Procrastinate” S/T LP, is coming soon on “Sweetohm Recordings” accompanied by artwork born from the hands of Alex CF (Fall of Efrafa, Light Bearer, Carnist, Momentum, Archivist, Morrow, etc).

Recording (guitars & drums), mixing & mastering took place at Infected Studios in Livadia, Greece by George Stournaras.
Vocals were recorded at Huge4 Studios in Karditsa, Greece by Achilleas Kaminiotis.
Bass guitar was recorded at Procrastinate Studios in Karditsa, Greece by Procrastinate.
Produced by Procrastinate & George Stournaras.
The artwork was born from the hands of Alex CF.
Layout also handled by Alex CF.

Our support and solidarity goes to all squats, social centers and autonomous places throughout Greece and beyond. Our gratitude and memories are with all the bands that we’ve shared the stage (or floor) with, all the people that each in their own way pushed us forward, was involved in our gigs and gave us a place to stay, all of you that spent some time to exchange a word with us, who we count as friends.
