Punk Rock Road Trips Presents: The Restarts (UK)

The Restarts are a tight three piece, multi-genre punk outfit based in East London. Formed in 1995 they play thrashy, anarcho, power chord punk laced with Ska breaks and pogo inducing basslines, earning them a loyal following of punk lovers of all ages. The Restarts have been hammering their way through the squats of Europe and DIY house shows across North America with reckless abandon.

The Restarts lend amplification to unheard voices, playing benefit gigs for various social causes, keeping the DIY spirit of punk rock alive and well. Their years of hard graft is recognised by them being requested to play along side such heavy weights as Steve Ignorant (CRASS), Jello Biafra, M.D.C, The Casualties, Star F#cking Hipsters and The Subhumans.

Their 6th studio album “A Sickness of the Mind” released in 2013, managed to sell out the vinyl pressing in 2 short months. It has been widely cited as their best release to date!

2017 now sees them on their first touring venture to Australia and New Zealand.
