The Shape Of Punk To Come (Double Vinyl with Bonus CD)
Epitaph / Ada 86981.1
Released on June 8, 2010
Arguably the most influential hardcore album of all time, The Shape of
Punk to Come was Refused’s masterpiece, their last recording, and the
record that launched a generation of bands by pointing the way to a
hardcore sound that was dense, sophisticated, and brimming with smarts.
"The pure intellect that was pouring out of this band - musical intellect,
political intellect...even when it comes to arrangement, they were very
sophisticated. It still sounds fresh, it still sounds contemporary and new"
said uberfan Kirk Hammett of Metallica. Now fans can explore The Shape
of Punk To Come in whole new light, with an added CD with over 50
minutes of unreleased live performances, and a DVD documenting their
first US tour and ensuing demise. With a new generation of fans growing
up with the sound Refused help pioneer, The Shape Of Punk to Come is a
not-so-underground classic waiting to be rediscovered.
