“I’ve signed up for a gym membership. Let’s go!” screams Gap, owner/promoter of Thailand’s Holding On Records as he joins all the Asian promoters who Blacklisted Productions/Disrupt Co (Singapore) enlisted to announce arguably one of the biggest names in current-day hardcore – Gang Called Speed‘s – first ever SE Asian tour.
The band will be bringing their prison riot-inducing pits to Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia, and Indonesia this March on the back of an already PACKED set of bands hitting Asia (No Pressure/Regulate, One Step Closer, Roll Call, Mayhem, Saosin, and word on the street is a certain Comeback Kid are making some moves to return). With the band’s debut EP ‘Gang Called Speed’ on many people’s best of 2022 lists, and with their debut music video for ‘We See U’ breaking the internet last year, Gap and crew are right to get that cardio in now. Pits across Asia are going to need ambulances standing by ready.
When asked what their thoughts are about touring Asia for the first time, the gang responded, “We can’t wait to eat food and play hardcore music in South East Asia.”
