BioHailing from Boston, Massachusetts, DISASTER STRIKES is the first band from the New England region of the United States to ever release an album on Alternative Tentacles. Their politically informed, impassioned music is not easily pigeonholed. Formed in 1999, DISASTER STRIKES have crafted their own unique brand of political punk and hardcore inspired by diverse influences including DEAD KENNEDYS, ECONOCHRIST, SLAPSHOT and CRASS. DISASTER STRIKES has sold thousands of records and has toured the Eastern United States extensively. The band is slated to embark on their first-ever West Coast US tour in March 2007 with punk legends NAKED AGGRESSION and fellow-Boston punks MOUTH SEWN SHUT.
