Dress Code – Perception
Since the dawn of time, punk and hardcore have been synonymous yet separate. The former invokes a more theatrical yet haphazard approach, with the latter connoting more deliberate and tough. The term hardcore punk has often come to mean a transitional phase between these to connected genres, but Houston, TX’s Dress Code is not a missing link, they are the curators of this definition. Their use of both punk and hardcore’s defining features allow them to have a show where members fall and moshers mosh, while their music berates our ear drums with relentless speed and baritone vocals. Limited edition of 500 copies.
