Formed in late 80s, one of the most original mixed-breed of the NYHC scene, cross-genre hardcore band MAXIMUM PENALTY are booking their European tour for August this year! The band will be doing a string of dates including their appearances at Ieperfest, Brutal Assault, and Endless Summer festivals.
MAXIMUM PENALTY released their comeback album “Life & Times” in 2009 via Reaper Records!
In 1986, at the height of the hardcore movement in New York City, the underground scene gave birth to one of the most original hybrids of hardcore. After over a decade, Maximum Penalty has had seven releases on labels varying from Blackout Records to I Scream/Roadrunner Records, have toured the US and Europe, taken hiatus and have now returned with a vengeance. October 2009 will bring the fruits of a seed first planted in 1986 and since then been cultivated by many different hands.
