G.L.O.S.S., “Give Violence a Chance”

Sam Lefebvre

not normal tapes

When peace is just another word for death / It’s our time to give violence a chance

So goes the opening of “Give Violence a Chance”, a new song by Olympia hardcore outfit G.L.O.S.S. (Girls Living Outside Society’s Shit), whose demo tape Impose slotted at No. 2 on our Best Albums of 2015 list. The song, which leads Illinois punk and hardcore label Not Normal‘s upcoming Not Normal Presents… Hardcore compilation, lands urgently and emphatically, the aforementioned proclamation but another part of an argument articulated by vocalist Sadie Switchblade explicitly about and for trans women, whose disproportionate deaths amount to what’s been called an “epidemic of violence” in the United States (which isn’t to mention the prejudice typified recently by the obstacles to civilization in Whirr). In other words, “Give Violence a Chance” is the latest from the most necessary band in hardcore.

You can stream “Give Violence a Chance” and the entire Not Normal Presents… Hardcore compilation below.
