The Suicide File


The Suicide File were a five-piece hardcore punk band from Boston, Massachusetts that were around from 2001 to 2003, though they have played a few reunion shows since. They were relatively short-lived, though their output still stands out today as some of the most incredible Boston hardcore of (arguably) all time. This band is also noted for having members involved in tons of other legendary projects, including The Hope Conspiracy, Death By Stereo, and Give Up The Ghost/American Nightmare, all of whom they definitely share sonic qualities with. There's really not much else that needs to be said beyond that. If you're a fan of fucking great, no bullshit, in and out straight-up hardcore, this is a band I'm sure you've heard before. If not, this is your lucky day. They were one of many bands from that scene that really revitalized hardcore during that era, removing the tough guy bullshit and leaving good, high energy punk rock in its place. In terms of releases, they were fairly active in their time. Though they only put one "full-length" (18 minutes constitutes a full-length in hardcore terms), they also put a few splits and such, all of which were conveniently compiled in 2005. Enjoy.
