Palatka


Palatka were a five-piece hardcore/emo violence band from Gainesville, Florida that were around from 1994 to 1999, and returned to play a reunion show in 2015. They played a very spastic and jittery form of hardcore that incorporated the full-throttle aggression of bands like In/Humanity with the rhythmic nuances of a band like Heroin. Palatka also featured two vocalists.

They were relatively prolific for a band in their corner of the musicsphere, releasing multiple splits, being featured on many, many compilations, and putting out a full-length on No Idea Records. They also toured in Europe, which is a seemingly rare thing for bands like this around then. Despite putting out some incredible work, they are incredibly underrated, so definitely check them out. Below is their full-length and their most notable split, along with a discography released in 2002 that I unfortunately don't have much info or artwork for. If you know anything about it, please fill me in! Enjoy.
