Guitarist Steve Karp told Revolver: “On the surface, putting out a hardcore punk rock LP in 2015 might not seem like a major accomplishment for anyone. But when you look a little deeper, the fact that four 40-something punk rockers (three pushing ‘LATE 40-something’) in two different states, with multiple full time jobs, marriages, families, etc., managed to write, record, mix, illustrate, typeset and layout said LP takes on ‘major life accomplishment’ status to us in the band. Not to mention the fact that those same 40-something punk rockers unleashed 11 tracks of pure, unbridled ferocity, blisteringly passionate music and unfailingly unflinching lyrics backed by tons of original artwork. We didn’t invent the genre, nor did we look to reinvent it, but we did continue to carry the torch of carving out our own unique brand of hardcore punk that we started way back in 1988.”
Recorded by NYHC fixture, Glen Lorieo, Revenge Regret Repeat features 11 furious blasts of hardcore punk rock played in Yuppicide’s own distinctive style. Revenge Regret Repeat marks the first Yuppicide full-length since 1995’s Dead Man Walking on Wreck-Age Records, and the first new Yuppicide music since 2012’s ‘American Oblivion’ EP on Dead City Records.
The three core members of Yuppicide: Joe Keefe (bass), Steve Karp (guitar), and Jesse Jones (vocals) met while attending school in Brooklyn, N.Y. In 1988, Yuppicide came together and quickly recorded a nine-song demo tape and began gigging in venues like CBGB’s and Abc-No-Rio, along with basements, backyards, squats, living rooms – anywhere and everywhere there was a chance to play. The band then went on to release three full length records on Wreck-Age: Fear Love (1991), Shinebox (1993) and Dead Man Walking (1995). In 2012, Yuppicide released its first studio recordings in 14 years titled the ‘American Oblivion’ EP. This critically acclaimed EP and Yuppicide’s aggressive music brought the band once again to the forefront of the hardcore punk scene.
