Brazil's legendary thrashers are back with the brand new full length containing 19 tracks and it does not let down in the ferocity and anger that Discarga is known for.

Well established in the international hardcore community with their ten years of existence of existence, three European tours and solid previous releases on labels like 625, Laja or Peculio and contains current and ex-members of POINT OF NO RETURN, RATOS DE PORAO and O INIMIGO.

BIRDS OF A FEATHER "The Past The Present - what we said what we believed counts even more today" T-SHIRT.
We are more than happy to announce a full length release of Birds Of A Feather on Refuse Records. If you still didn't hear about this band from Holland, or if you didn't hear at least about any of their previous bands or activities, you probably don't know too much about European Straight Edge and Hardcore at all. Here's a chance to improve that knowledge. The die-hards from Birds Of A Feather used to be active in the past in bands like MAINSTRIKE, MANLIFTINGBANNER, BETRAY, CRIVITS, NO DENIAL, X-MEN and zines like "Value Of Strength"; with BOAF they have three 7"s on their backs on labels like Crucial Response, Commitment and Give Praise records. This full-length release reflects years of dedication, commitment, and straight-edge values for more than 15 (not to say 25!) years. BOAF aim is to address the current hardcore scene, where sometimes the true spirit and meaning of the original first wave of straight edge had disappeared.
They still have the same drive to get out their message, as in the eighties and nineties. To show that straight edge is not "a passing phase". To show that hardcore is not a passing phase. To prove that their ideals still matter, and still work. And still need work. Right then and right now. So watch out for 80-ies style, youth crew sing-along hardcore, bringing an ever urgent message for a positive lifestyle and a better society. A release containing 13 songs recorded in legendary Bunt Studio's by Menno Bakker (Holland) and mastered in West West Side Music by Alan Douches (NY, Usa).
LP version of the album should be out around November and it will come with a book about 25 years of European Straight Edge, so expect a mind-blowing release!
We also did exclusive BIRDS OF A FEATHER t-shirts: "The Past The Present - What was said what we believed counts even more today". Write us for more details.
