New Release – Class of 86 – Future On Fire


On their Bandcamp page, Class of 86 describe themselves as a melodic punk band. Maybe when you scratch the surface but when you dig deeper, you also expose the bones of hardcore and metal.

This album is tight, heavy and doesn’t mess around. I’m a guy who listened to early 90’s hardcore, metal and post-punk, and missed when all the singers sounded like wounded monsters. This band is a flashback with a modern tilt, and I could see it as something I could listen to back then and listen to now as well. It’s nice to be able to understand what they are singing about.

In a town entrenched with hip-hop and trendy indie rock, Class of 86 could either be a hard sell or a niche worth exploiting. Either way I don’t think these guys probably think about that too much. It’s punk rock, no matter how you slice it.
