Union 13 Biography

Last updated: 11/27/2003 10:06:28 PM

"This bilingual outfit is hardcore enough to share the stage with the likes of BOUNCING SOULS and U.S. BOMBS, yet maintains a Latino-centric outlook. It translates to rabble-rousing punk anthems delivered with ample amounts of Marshall-stack power, left-wing venom and pogo-beat passion -- not to mention the occasional rolled R amid the rapid-fire Spanish. In any language, it kicks ass."

DISASTER is proud to bring you the new studio album by East LA phenomenon UNION 13. Signed by Epitaph while in their teens, the band released three albums with the label in the past 5 years, and earned a well-deserved reputation as a killer live act : not ones to stay home watching TV, UNION 13 has done 7 U.S. tours, 3 Canadian tours, 2 Euro tours and 2 Mexican tours since their first CD hit the streets in '98.

Over the years JOSE, LOUIE and RUDY have developed their own brand of hardcore, East Los style, and "Symptoms of Humanity" marks their return to the raw sounds of their beginnings. Dont miss!
