You may be excited about what 2020, holds, but Fastix certainly aren’t and it shows on this latest release, No Future 2020, out January 10 on Disuse Records.
Fastix were formed in Harrogate, England in early 2019. Influenced primarily by 80s hardcore groups like Gorilla Biscuits, Minor Threat, and Inside Out, as well as Rage Against the Machine, they self-released their debut, self-titled EP on April 24, 2019. The EP was recorded in November 2019 at Cavities Studios in Harrogate and is being released through Leeds DIY label Disuse Records.
“We tried on this EP to really capture the landscape we believe the U.K.’s in right now, having been written just prior to the last general election. In the past few years there’s been an increase in knife crime and austerity, and climate change is a massive issue. The album’s written to be angry but hopeful that a difference real can be made if we all try hard enough.”
