Gorilla Biscuits will take pack their unique style of NYHC off to Australia this week for a string of dates in the land Down Under running into early October. Their first visit in 2006 had Oz going crazy, this trip will surely provoke more of the same wild reactions.

In the fractured late 80’s NYHC scene, Gorilla Biscuits welcomed skinheads, straight edge kids, and punks. The band provided what everyone wanted in those trying times: GOOD MOSH PARTS. Band founder Walter Schreifels lays it out in the pages of Tony Rettman’s NYHC: New York Hardcore 1980–1990:

“Our lyrics were inviting to everyone, and the music had events of pop, but you could still mosh to it. Unintentionally, we found a center in the scene. You could be either camp in hardcore, and be into us. We just wanted people to mosh and have good time.”

Australians—come out, mosh, and have a good time. “No Reason Why” you shouldn’t…
