STRUGGLE SESSION is born from a love of all kinds of hardcore-punk from the 80s, 90s, and 00s mixed with the intensity of extreme metal. It is fast, it is chaotic, it is fun! They live by the motto “no stage is the best stage,” feeling more at home out in the audience—and more comfortable with most of their clothes on the floor.
STRUGGLE SESSION is “self-criticism-core” at its most intense, soundtracking any room with maximum destruction, putting all they have into each performance and leaving the audience a sweaty, heaving mess.
Since forming in late 2016, STRUGGLE SESSION has averaged one performance every five days, always making themselves at home, whether they’re performing at a major festival or a dank basement.While they share bills and steal riffs from punk, post-punk, and metal acts alike, you don’t have to be a music nerd to appreciate their references. It’s powerviolence at it’s most fun and self-effacing best.
Based in Beijing, STRUGGLE SESSION features members of Chinese hardcore punk band Fanzui Xiangfa, Australian synth-grind band Scrotal Vice, Moroccan hardcore band W.O.R.M., and US band Handed To The Thousands. From four corners of the world, they united over a shared affinity for fast music, reckless abandon, and tasteful public nudity.
STRUGGLE SESSION is anti-racist, anti-sexist, and anti-homophobic, pro-positivity, pro-diversity and accepting of all.
