The Casualties

The Casualties members aimed to return to what they viewed as the “golden era” of street punk, embodied by bands such as The Exploited, Charged GBH,
which they believed had disappeared by 1985. During the early years,
the lineup was stable. The initial lineup consisted of Colin and Jorge
on vocals, Yureesh on drums, Hank on guitar, and Mark on bass. Colin
stepped out for several months to finish his education while Rachel,
Rivits’ singer, took his place.

At this point, Colin, Jorge, Yureesh, and Mark put together a demo.
Fred replaced Hank, but then Fred left to go to school, and Scott from C-Squat filled in. Another guitarist, Steve, from Distraught, also filled in during this period. The EP 40 Oz. Casualty
was recorded. By 1992, the band was touring and building up a fan base
in NYC. In 1993, bassist Mark and guitarist Fred were replaced by Mike
and Jake, respectively and Yureesh was replaced by Shawn on drums in
1994. In 1995, the band’s second release, the “A Fuckin Way Of Life”
E.P. was released on Eyeball Records. In 1996, Shawn left the band, and
Meggers of the Rivits came to fill in and became the regular drummer.
The line-up of Jorge, Jake, Mike and Meggers continued until 1997.
Johnny (Of The Krays) served as bassist until 1998 (a position more
permanently filled by Rick later that year).

The Casualties have continued to produce high-energy recordings and
they have done US and international tours (e.g., Europe, Japan, and El Salvador). Under Attack
was released on SideOneDummy Records in 2006, and they toured virtually
non-stop for three years in support of the album. Their newest album, We Are All We Have, was released on the SideOneDummy label on August 25, 2009.

In December 2009, The Casualties toured alongside Hatebreed, The Acacia Strain, Crowbar, and Thy Will Be Done as part of the Stillborn Fest.

The Casualties are currently planning on recording a new album in April 2012, to be released in the summer of 2012.

  1. I’m impressed, I have to admit. Seldom do I encounter a blog that’s equally educative and amusing, and without a doubt, you
    have hit the nail on the head. The problem is something
    that not enough folks are speaking intelligently about. I’m very happy that I came across this in my search for
    something relating to this.
