The Offbeats [USA]

(post updated on january 13 2011)


~2004-PRESENT
Great 4-piece from Grand Rapids, Michigan. They play old school hardcore punk with some ska.
I would say for the fans of Poisoners, Rise-Up and crs family. Had a show with LoC and Citizen Fish.

Members:
Brian - guitar, vocals; Colin - vocals; Chris - bass; Skip - drums

They also released an album called "ATTACK!," quite a long time ago though. Thanks for this, had demos of a bunch of the tunes, but these sound a little better.

I used to talk to their drummer on aim all the time when I was younger, and he was my age (18). Whodathunk they'd go as far as they did. They're amazing, that's why.

Such a great band!! Thanks a lot. I wonder if someone could post the lyrics for Mind Control. Seems to be too hard for me as I'm not native English speaker...
TIA!
