Quite possibly more relevant than ever before, the classic kings of Punk THE ADICTS have returned with astounding intensity on their latest release: And It Was So. Genuine Punk Rock has always been about sending a message, but more importantly it's about remaining true to your roots, and for decades, THE ADICTS have never tried to become anything but what they are: raw, unadulterated Punk Rock.
First establishing themselves in Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND as early as 1975, and putting out their first full length album on Dwed Records "Songs Of Praise" in 1981, THE ADICTS have had decades to perfect their craft. Their motivation is tireless, unending, and they are entirely dedicated to purity of music which in today's scene is rare to say the least. The two primary types of fuel used to ignite THE ADICTS fire are most certainly their diehard fans, and the true art form that is the creation of their own original music.
Staying true to their personal taste is part of what caught the recent attention of Nuclear Blast Records. When it comes to music THE ADICTS write what they want to; they've never been into the fashion of it all. There are currently no pressures being put on the band, whereas years ago they were under so much pressure that none of them even wanted to write. After signing to the new label, and with new music ready and waiting to be presented to millions of fans all over the world, THE ADICTS are shifting into the craziness of our modern world and all its influence.
