The Uprising is a Berlin based punk rock band founded in 2012. The band released their self titled début tape on Mustard Mustache in 2013 and recently they released a 7” called ‘Down We Go’ as well as a compilation CD featuring both releases on Bad Dog Records.

The Uprising consists of ex-members of bands like Frontkick, Distressed, Nervous Chillin’, Versus You and Far From Finished. So, with these bands in mind, you have a pretty good idea of what you can expect: energetic ’77 studs and spikes inspired punk with catchy melodies, a dose of Rancid and some socio critical lyrics. In a way, and that’s my personal view folks, ‘The Uprising’ manage to create a connection between the punk of the 70’s and today’s punk rock resulting in a modern version of the early punk.

This band sounds very promising and I think they have a bright future ahead. 8/10
