Self Defense Family

Your favorite band’s favorite band, Cohoes New York's Self Defense Family enjoys a distinct renown within the punkcommunity. Well-respected and critically lauded but difficult and idiosyncratic, the band has done things their way almost to afault. Eschewing sing-alongs and easy anthems in favor of personal lyrics, Self Defense Family stands apart from theircontemporaries in punk and hardcore. Their strangely tense guitar-work framed within otherwise hook laden songs lends theband an unmistakable sound, opting to be heavy in emotion rather than heavy in sound.
