Formed by individuals steeped in hardcore/punk history, Bars has offered up an album that is a stripped-down, sonic onslaught. The debut is laden with a pissed-off rock n' roll swagger that is as pummeling as it is catchy. Regardless of perspective or expectations, Bars make rock n' roll, and make it explode. Formed in the summer of 2003, the Boston quintet pooled their influences and channeled them into a raw, focused outlet absent of gimmicks or facades. Reminiscent of 80's punk and hardcore in the vein of Black Flag and Discharge, "Introducing..." is the revival of that era in punk music.
