Story

" There's a class of common people, of workers, across borders, beliefs, nationalities, colors and genders that stands for human rights in constant opposition to autocrats, bankers and corrupted politicians. There's a Class of Nations".

With a clear statement THE OFFENDERS introduce their 8th full lenght CLASS OF NATIONS out in November 2019 on Long Beach Records Europe. The album represents a change in the band's sound, adding to their offbeat trademark a more straight-in-the-face streetpunk sound combined with folk elements, using for the first time ever in their carreer a mandolin as lead instrument alongside punk distorted guitar and fast upbeat tempo. As they always did in nearly 15 years of activity, THE OFFENDERS still have a say about nowadays society and politics, as revealed in the opening track ROSE THORN (feat.Frankie McLaughlin / THE RUMJACKS), a working class anthem standing against all profits that corrupted politicians made upon their lies selling out the future of the workers, or MARCHEZ where EU crisis and rising of far-right movement must be faced by the common people as happened during the Spanish Civil War in the past century.
Alongside politics and streetlife we still find some private toughts and reflections like in "Evils Cry Sometimes" or "Chaos FM". On the other hand THE OFFENDERS never miss to also bring the joy and excitement of life into focus. The tracks "Moshpit" or "Rise & Shine" are a step into a slight new direction while nevertheless still sticking to the band's attitude, traditions and beliefs.
During their 15 years of carreer the band appeared in countless clubs and festivals around Europe, including tours in Russia and China, sharing stages with bands like Bad Religion, NoFx, Korn, Flogging Molly, Dropkick Murphys, Feine Sahne Fischfilet, Danko Jones, John Cale from Velvet Underground, Radio Birdman, Selecter, Bad Manners, Rumjacks, Real Mckenzies, Buzzcocks, Misfits, Cock Sparrer, Street Dogs, Anti Flag... just to name a few.
CLASS OF NATIONS marks a new era in the band's carreer that embraces the tradtion, heritage and handmade legacy from the last fifeteen years on the one hand while it adds a new dimension to the band's identity and artisitc profile on the other, infusing folk and streetpunk elements giving the total sound a new enthusiastic profile that will guarantee singalongs raised fists when THE OFFENDERS will paint cities all over Europe red with their live sets.
