Alright, here's the Artist of the Month, August '09. Congratulations, Against Belief!


Intro

We've been playing for about 5 years now, and we've only been playing well for half of that time. For all of us, Against Belief was our first band and we continue to play on and off today. I really don't know what else to say, so here's an interview we did: CLICK ME!! (http://www.supernova.com/features/960/Against-Belief)

Musical Style
Punk. There's not really much more to it, other than the fact that I'll sometimes write a little differently every now and then, but mainly we're a punk band. Specifically, we've got that patented Southern California feel, even though we're from Winnipeg, Canada.

Musical Background, Influences
We all started the band when we all listened to Bad Religion and The Offspring. Since then, our musical tastes have flourished (except for mine). But seeing as how I write almost all of the music, I'll just list my influences: Bad Religion, The Offspring, Dead Kennedys, Minor Threat, Circle Jerks, Bad Brains, and Primus. There's probably more, but whatever. I'm just your generic punk.

Forums (http://againstbelief.comxa.com) (will soon change, though)

Also, I've just recently put together an album of all of our listenable demos. The quality is inconsistent, but I've remastered some of them so that the inconsistency isn't too noticeable.

Download Against Belief - The Current Essentials (http://www.megaupload.com/?d=ZTN846QV)

I called it The Current Essentials for obvious reasons: currently, those are the songs of ours that you should listen to. But we are still constantly releasing songs and content, so don't just download that and be on your way. In fact, I'll probably have a couple of more songs up before the end of the month, so stay tuned, dammit!


Edit: Be sure to visit the official Against Belief Youtube channel (http://www.youtube.com/user/AgainstBelief) with lots of live videos and fun videos/skits!

An incredibly well-deserved Artist of the Month. Against Belief is probably my favorite BBS band, or at least tied for first. Great great stuff.

EDIT - Is Against Belief on the poll list again for next month?

Yes, they are. I always did it that way, with the exception of the Ricetigers who were not on the list after their award month.

Fair enough. Well - not to nitpick, but if everyone gets to go back onto the poll, why didn't I?

Oh, fuck. I totally forgot about that. I'm sorry about that!:o I'll put you back on the list for next month, that's for sure. But maybe one of the supermods - probably Ricky - can put you on the list in this thread.

So, I just released a new video game music cover...

Street Fighter II - Cammy's Theme (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hEx1iWN-2x4)

Speaking of which, go check out my thread (http://www.offspring.com/forums/showthread.php?t=33760) full of 'em!

Wait, I already released that on the Mixtape.

I'm a fucking idiot.

Alright, so I would've put up a new song, but I've lost the master tracks. Also, I would've posted the lyrics for The Current Essentials, but I'm going to Seattle this week.

But other than that, more people should download The Current Essentials and let me know what they think!

Thanks for voting for Against Belief, everybody!
