Formed in 2017 by Andrew Kline — guitarist for Strife and World Be Free and WAR Records owner – who here commands the mic, BERTHOLD CITY’s lineup is rounded out by guitarists Dennis McDonald (Internal Affairs) and Devin Vale (Final Fight), drummer Adam Galindo (One Choice), and bassist John Eightclip (Allegiance). The straight edge band released a three-song demo last July and have been keeping busy playing shows with such bands as Terror, Judge, Decline, Regulate, Dare, and Fall Silent, among others. Written in the musical and lyrical spirit of the seminal Judge 7″, Kline wrote all the songs and recorded them with Galindo.
