All Opposed

All Opposed is cheap, dirty punk rock for the every day asshole. This Lone Star 5 piece from Austin, TX is cited to harness 80’s hardcore aggressive rock with a throwback sound not like anything that’s come out of the Austin scene in the last 30 years. Influences include Bouncing Souls, Minor Threat, and Guttermouth

Archaic III

Southern Sludge-Fueled Ska Punk

Hans Gruber and the Die Hards

What happens when a guy who has the same name as the villain from Die Hard becomes roommates with a punk whose accomplishments include “bouncing around a mosh pit” and finding time to watch every episode of Street Sharks? They form a band, of course! Throw in a surprisingly coherent drummer (he was secretly a college Dean), a songwriting machine bassist with a liberal approach to fashion, manic hardcore tunes, some conspiracy-fueled paranoia, the occasional Harry Belafonte cover, and the result is Hans Gruber and the Die Hards!

Originally formed in 2014, the band soon became known in the local Austin music scene for their breakneck speed performances and energetic front man TJ. The band put out their first EP on February 14, 2016, teaming up with Kepi Ghoulie of The Groovie Ghoulies to throw a release party dedicated to the end of the world (as predicted in Ghostbusters 2). They then embarked on their first journey beyond Texas for the Totally Jawsome Tour, spreading the Gospel of the Gruberites to dive bars and DIY clubs along the East Coast.

2017 saw the release of the band’s first full length record. The 14 song album was recorded in a weekend at Austin’s Public Hi-Fi studios, and displays some of the band’s diverse influences. From the nihilistic hardcore anthem “It Just Doesn’t Matter” to the apocalyptic church-inspired “Blood Moon,” the album explores the themes of life, death, and taking senior citizens on a shopping trip to the moon. Kurt's wife, Rosey, contributed her saxophone skills to the first album, and after bringing her aggressively joyful spirit to the band's live performances, they couldn't help but add her as full time member.

​The band has shown no signs of slowing down this past year with an official SXSW 2018 appearance followed by their longest tour to date in the fall to play THE FEST in Gainesville, Florida. They also completed recording for their next full length record which is expecting a release in 2019. Wherever the forces of darkness appear, whether it be the satanic consumption of Monster energy drinks, the reptilian overlords, or big ol' Texas trucks, Hans Gruber and the Die Hards will continue to party on. "Where will you be when they come!?"
