Hot Shit Attitude: The Outburst Covers Record is brought to the fans in addition to celebrating Outburt’s upcoming vinyl reissue of their pivotal, 1989 release, Miles To Go. The band and their label (Blackout! Records) have decided to release a companion compilation comprised of great new bands covering Outburst songs. Outburst have an Indiegogo set up for limited, vinyl LP reissues of the band’s renowned release Miles To Go.
As teenage knuckleheads growing up in Astoria, Queens, the members of Outburst never imagined their brand of New York Hardcore would live beyond their live show and a few recordings. Still, here we are 30 years later, and new generations of punk and metal bands from all over the world are still finding inspiration in their music, sense of humor, and (lack of) attitude.
To this day, the band are still coming across covers of their songs from all over according to drummer and primary lyricist, Joe Songco. “I stumbled across a Siberian, female-fronted hardcore band (Big Boss) that had recorded a version of ‘Controlled,’ and it blew my mind that anyone so remote, so many years later, even knew about us.”
