It's 1984. D.R.I. had just gotten back from the ''Rock Against Reagan'' U.S.
tour opening for M.D.C. and The Dead Kennedys. While the tour was well
attended, the pay was terrible (if not next to nothing). D.R.I. retuned home
tired, cold, and broke. Most bands would have thrown in the towel... not
D.R.I. They continued to live in their van; eating once a day at soup
kitchens, practicing non-stop, writing fast intense songs, and playing any
and all shows offered to them!
Once they perfected their new songs, they recorded the Violent
Pacification 7'', which would be D.R.I.'s next release and done in
conjunction with M.D.C.'s label R Radical Records! The new 7'' contained
4 brand new songs, just as fast and furious as their previous release, but at
the same time more complex. The band was getting even better... not only
did these new songs pack a punch large enough to kick a full mouth of teeth
in, but they also contained some faint traces of metal. This would be the first
hint of D.R.I. turning things up even more and of what would come on their
next full length!
Now after being out-of-print for 26 years, Beer City Records is proud to
reissue Violent Pacification in its original 7'' format. Once again, you will
be able to plop down this influential and crucial record onto your turntable
and enjoy the fast-paced, heart-pounding hardcore masterpiece the way it
was first presented (and meant to be heard) 26 years ago! Containing a
total of 4 songs that will have you thrashing all over the room and shouting
''VIOLENT PACIFICATION!'' 'til the wee hours of the morning. This is D.R.I.!
This is American hardcore!
