“Witness A Rebirth is about carrying on the traditions of Hardcore,” says Strife guitarist Andrew Kline. “This record is about taking everything that we learned and everything that we love about Hardcore and sharing it with the youth. They are the ones that will carry the torch and keep the true spirit alive. I feel like this record store is a perfect place to show that. I grew up in a time when you learned about bands and HC from the liner notes of records and from reading zines. I want to bring back that sense of community, and I want the new kids to see that they can get involved.”
Check out the new STRIFE song TORN APART off of Witness A Rebirth on 6131 Records.
