“Can’t Relate was a hardcore band, formed in the summer of 2007. They didn’t have merch, social media or a demo recorded before their first show; in fact, they were probably the only hardcore band in Australia at the time. Between October 2007 and November 2008, they spent more time playing shows and practicing then they did editing their Myspace layout and promoting the band on the internet. The band was an outlet for everything wrong with hardcore and society at the time, and still is today” – taken from uglyandproudrecords.bigcartel.com
The tracks were released by the band in 2008, and seem to include all the ingredients for the typical hardcore recipe. However, Can’t Relate writes these songs damn good. They breath energy, anger, and freedom. The bands reaches musical superiority over many other bands, who focus on assets besides their music. If you like Floorpunch, Chain of Strength or Carry On, you will definitely dig this too.
The 2008 demo was released on 7″today, on February 1st, 2013 via a collaboration between Positive and Focused Records and Ugly and Proud Records. They are printed on three colors of wax, including: black, white, and yellow. The artwork is a collaboration as well, between graffiti-artist Jym from Germany and Spanish cartoonist Javi.
