STRONG INTENTION: Maryland Powerviolence Nihilists Announce February Takeover

Maryland powerviolence nihilists, STRONG INTENTION, will take their sonic terrorism to the streets again later this month on a 13-date trek that will commence on February 22nd at The Acheron in Brooklyn and run through March 6th at AS220 in Providence, Rhode Island. The band will be joined by France’s Department Of Correction and Sender Receiver.

Says SI founding frontman Zac Ohler: “Back on the road/ back to the grind in 2013! It’s going to be amazing to do a completely DIY tour in small clubs, basements, and wherever else the terror can be spread. DOC and Sender Receiver are two of the best underground DIY ragers around , and it’s going to be an ripper of a tour. Grind time starts in a few weeks and always remember that violence is always best left up to the experts!”
