Show Lineup

World I Hate

(Milwaukee, WI)
Genre: Hardcore, Metal, Powerviolence

Music journalists love to celebrate hardcore that they perceive as clever, boundary-pushing, or innovative, but for all the lip service paid to novelty, hardcore’s efficacy can actually be gauged by one incredibly simple metric: Its ability to incite a room full of maladjusted goons to extreme violence. Measured with that barometer, Milwaukee’s World I Hate is ten times the hardcore band any flavor of the week act could ever hope to be.

Initially formed at the end of 2018, World I Hate released their debut EP Collapse in 2020 and played their first show in 2021. The band performs a brand of hyper-competent, no frills hardcore that combines the best parts of the genre’s last 25 or so years into a potent and hard-hitting formula that’s nearly impossible to dislike. The fact that their lineup is bolstered by a member of Texas stalwarts Judiciary doesn’t hurt matters.

If you prefer your heavy music to have radio-ready choruses and crossover appeal, look elsewhere. But if you’re in the market for unrelenting capital “H” Hardcore that is unconcerned with trends, look no further than World I Hate.

Cross Me

(Milwaukee, WI)
Genre: Crossover, Hardcore, Punk

Energy, creativity and familiarity–3 of the most important elements and ingredients to writing Hardcore music and it seems Cross Me has that very well understood. Formed in early 2013, hailing from Milwaukee, WI, the Midwest Hardcore scene is one of the latest hotbeds for a good reason and Cross Me helps prove to us why.
