Ten years after their last album “Widerstand” the Coburger Hardcore-Punks are back with a new record. And this one is a blast! The band around looks back on turbulent times. In 2014 RAWSIDE’s front man Henne was arrested for possession of drugs and sentenced to prison – followed by therapy. It took a while for Henne to come to terms with what had happened. “Your Life Gets Crushed” is the hardest, fastest and most uncompromising album RAWSIDE have produced in their 25-year band history. In addition to political numbers like “Mr. President” and “Wahlboykott”, which deal with the ubiquitous dystopia, the musicians have also processed very personal impressions and life events on the album. The song “(Nie) wieder frei”, for example, deals with Henne’s time in prison. Now the front man has been drug-free for five years and RAWSIDE have grown together into a closed unit since their resurrection. Limited yellow 180g vinyl.
