Howitzer Bio:

Howitzer rose out of the ashes of rock and roll after the inevitable collapse of the once revolutionary music genre. When the shit that passed for punk rock in the nineties was exposed as fraudulent, many of us looked for music that was true to its purpose. For the people, by the people. With influence from hardcore heavyweights Sick of it All, Sheer Terror, Slapshot, along with spirit of ’77 masters The Business, Cocksparrer, and the 4-Skins, Howitzer began to bring back the legendary style and sound of street rock. Originally from New England, the 2 brothers, Russ (bass and vocals) and Jay (drums and vocals), and guitarist Lance have paid their dues in the Dirty South, playing the clubs you wouldn’t let your girl friend alone in or start a fight you can’t finish without a gunshot. With their first release Police State, the band brought to the studio 9 years of material the brothers had under their belts and blew away the hardest of the hardcore fans and the traditional punk rock crowds. Now, the new 7 inch out this winter “Turncoat” Howitzer will establish a new benchmark in street rock and roll. The return of street-level music by the workingman, for the workingman. Check out a show in Miami to see why City Link magazine describes their music as ‘firebomb-throwing, revolutionary lyrics and a brutal assault of thrashy guitars and pummeling drums’
