7 Seconds

Reno-via-Sacramento quartet 7 Seconds are one of hardcore’s genuinely classic and enduring acts. Alongside Minor Threat and Youth Of Today, they helped to define straight edge; alongside Bad Religion and Descendents, they helped to define California hardcore-punk. The band’s lineup (and sound, to some extent) has changed significantly over their three-plus decades, but unlike other punk bands from the region, they’ve retained their identity thanks to the constant participation of two core members, brothers Kevin Seconds and Steve Youth (nĂ© Marvelli). It’s been eight years since 7 Seconds’ last release, 2005′s Take It Back, Take It On, Take It Over!, but they’re back this fall with a two-song 7″ to be followed (at some point) by a new LP. We’ve got the vinyl’s A-side, “My Aim Is You,” spinning now, though. Check it out.

“My Aim Is You” b/w “Slogan On A Shirt” is out 10/1 via Rise Records; pre-order here.
