Struggle - 7"

Ebullition #5

Available on 7"

Before The Locust, before The Swing Kids, before Bread & Circuits there was a very young band from San Diego called Struggle. They were an energetic band that played brutal political hardcore that was powered by anger and youthful angst.

The early Struggle sound was heavily influenced by Downcast and Rorschach, and this first release was a powerful explosion of high energy hardcore. Furious and aggressive. Probably their best release.

Struggle - 12"

Ebullition #17

Available on 12"

This seven song 12" was the last release for Struggle. Their sound had mutated into a much more metal sounding assault, while still maintaining the energy and brutal force of their previous releases.

The 12" comes with an awesome twelve page booklet featuring seven different pieces of art from World War III's Seth Tobocman.

Once Struggle broke up the various members went on to be in The Locust, The Swing Kids, Bread & Circuits, and Holy Molar.
