The Rival Mob was born in a bitter wasteland known as Massachusetts in the year of 2007 AD, where 5 men were brought together by a common goal: to play hardcore punk in a manner most hard, cold, and real. Having had a bit of experience here and there playing in bands such as MIND ERASER, FREE SPIRIT, MENTAL, RIGHTEOUS JAMS, THE WRONG SIDE, XFILESX, THE PROWL, BOTTOM LINE, NEW LOWS, LOVELY LADS and R'N'R , it wasn't long until Boston's infamous practice space and recording spa the Pain Cave was ringing with riffs. Inspired by late 80s hardcore a la Breakdown, Rest In Pieces, Youth Of Today, and Crippled Youth, the boys recorded their first demo (an '87 Breakdown worshipping slab of meat) and started playing shows and making a name for themselves within the wonderful hardcore punk community. Not long afterwards they were approached by Boston hardcore hero and entrepreneur Greg Willmott and a deal was inked for a release on the notorious Lockin' Out label. In late 2008 the "Raw Life" EP dropped like an atom bomb and the word was out: The Mob ruled all. Gigs and tee shirts began to flow like wine as the Mob continuously attacked the Northeast, Canada, and beyond. Unwavering in their style, the "Hardcore for Hardcore" EP was released in 2010 on Six Feet Under records to smashing success.Aged like a fine wine and seasoned like a fine meal, The Rival Mob return yet again for their first full-length LP on Revelation Records entitled "Mob Justice." "Mob Justice" will take the raw meat and potatoes Rival Mob formula and pump it full of caveman steroids. Not for either the faint of heart or the faint of pit - so don't say you weren't warned.
Sense Field will be playing a free warm up show on Wednesday, June 6 at the Slidebar in Fullerton, CA. Capacity is limited so be sure to arrive early to obtain your wristband.
Pre-orders for both Youth Of Today's "Break Down The Walls" and "We're Not In This Alone" LPs are up now.

While going through the archives getting ready for the 25th anniversary shows we've been uncovering some gems. We'll be re-issuing some long-out-of-print records and putting out some shirts that haven't been made in years. To start things off, Chain Of Strength have asked that we print up some "What Holds Us Apart" shirts using updated original artwork and also make some hand-screened posters. Both will be available for order on May 8th. The first ten orders for the shirt will get a free copy of the poster.
