World War IX - ABC No Rio (New York City) August 30, 2014

World War IX ABC No Rio
5 September 2014

Hot on the tail of their Southeastern US tour, World War IX returned to New York with a vengeance. Now a quintet with the addition of second guitarist, Early Gates, they attacked ABC No Rio with a Damaged-era Black Flag onslaught of aggressive punk rock. Vocalist Filthy Phill gyrated amongst the audience as guitarists Justin and Earl, bassist Brian and drummer Jon hammered out hardcore tunes with Circle Jerks might. Songs of frustration, alcohol consumption and bowel problems emanated from a roaring five-piece still high on the road. Always fun and exciting, WWIX delivered on their mission of punk rock domination at what may be the only original NYC punk rock venue still in existence (please correct me if I’m wrong).

World War IX The Highest of Fives Megaplatinum
World War IX’s new double A-side single, “The Highest of Fives” and “The King of the King of Beers,” was available at the show. It’s a whirlwind frenzy of epic hardcore punk that shows substantial growth in songwriting without compromising any of the elements that make WWIX “the best trashy punk band in NYC” (to quote myself).
