Fully embodying the DIY spirit, COUNTDOWN is a force to be reckoned with. These young musicians are channeling legendary hardcore acts such as the Cro-Mags, Bad Brains, Leeway, and Outburst, while adding their own fresh twist to create an original take on the timeless punk sound. The band splits their time between two locations: vocalist Chris Wilson, bassist Hardy Alegria, and guitarist Chandler Mercer in New York City, while guitarist Connor Jones, and drummer Mike Ralston are in Boston. This does not stop COUNTDOWN from remaining constantly busy, and after writing, recording, and self-releasing a demo, Flatspot Records picked up the act to officially re-release the songs to a wider international audience.

Already carrying an intense amount of energy in the American hardcore scene, with a lot of attention already being focused on this “demo” release, you can expect to hear a lot more on COUNTDOWN in the months and years to come as the band blossoms and expands through more records and shows.
