Direct Hit! added to lineup for Red Scare’s 10th anniversary show

Red Scare Industries is celebrating 10 years of labelhood on October 25th with a killer show at Chicago’s Metro.  Already announced as part of the lineup are The Falcon, The Lillingtons, The Methadones, Elway, and The Brokedowns and today Direct Hit! has been added into the mix.

Here’s what DH! frontman Nick Woods had to say:

“Most say punk rock saved their life, but the truth is Red Scare saved our lives. Like, most say ‘Praise His Name,’ but we say ‘Praise Toby Jeg Hallelujah.’ We look at this party more as an opportunity to serve the lord – well, OUR lord – than we look at it like a show. Like, we didn’t so much SIGN to Red Scare as we BECAME Red Scare. It’s a lifestyle thing, man. Get over it.”

Red Scare will be announcing 1 band per day via different sites so keep your eyes peeled for more additions.  In the meantime snag your tickets here.

So if you don’t agree with some releases on the list, your alternate was probably on there at some point. Here goes…
