As teenage knuckleheads growing up in Astoria, Queens, the members of Outburst never imagined their brand of New York Hardcore would live beyond their live show and a few recordings. Still, here we are thirty years later and new generations of punk and metal bands from all over the world are still finding inspiration in their music, sense of humor, and (lack of) attitude.
To celebrate the upcoming vinyl re-issue of their pivotal 1989 release, Miles To Go, the band and their label (Blackout! Records) decided to have some fun and release a companion compilation comprised of great new bands covering Outburst songs. The compilation will be called Hot Shit Attitude, a phrase taken from the lyrics to their song “No Choice”, and includes covers from a wide array of bands such as Power Trip and Higher Power – both of whom were already covering Outburst in their live sets.
“Hot Shit Attitude: The Outburst Covers Record” will be available on DSP’s 1/27/2020.
