Can't Relate

Can't Relate are righteous (i'm trying to bring it back, i'm failing) They play Straight Edge in a Limp Wrist, Siege, Negative Approach vein and are about to release their debut ep. From London, you will usually see them opening at tough guy hardcore shows and they are wasted on these kinda bills which is a shame. Can't relate have some super poppy guitar lines but the raging vocals make you want to strangle things. One of the best things about this band is the lyrics. 'No means no' being very poignant and talking about rape. There are no gimmicks or bullshit with these guys. This is straight up passionate, no frills hardcore addressing real and important issues and i fucking love it. First saw them in a house and thought they were awesome and then helped them get on the Reagan Youth Kingston show. Im putting them on in March with a bunch of rad hardcore bands so keep your eyes peeled for that one. These guys are all friends, diy as fuck and just want to play shows. They formed because of Punch and live for that band. Not much else to say apart from here is their myspace: http://www.myspace.com/xcantrelatex and here is that song i mentioned above from their soon to be released 'inhumane ep' http://www.mediafire.com/?wl4c4ydnfmm
Go see em live and if you are a promoter reading this, please put on em a Comadre/Punch show if you got a date. They would be seriously stoked
