OFF! have unveiled the final video in a three-part live series recorded by Go Incase for their Room 205 Series. The videos for ‘Crawl’ can be viewed below. The band’s frenzied hardcore punk sound is given visuals to match in what is the perfect trilogy of videos (including ‘Poison City’ and ‘Compared To What’ to demonstrate their aesthetic. OFF! will be back in the UK next week following their first ever performances on these shores earlier this month. Their last live dates on this run will be at XOYO (London) with Fu**ed Up and at Reading & Leeds Festivals on the Lock-Up Stage.

The individual roots established by Keith Morris (Black Flag/Circle Jerks), Dimitri Coats (Burning Brides), Steven McDonald (Redd Kross), and Mario Rubalcaba (Earthless/Hot Snakes/Rocket From The Crypt) are uniquely woven throughout the rock music canon. Each has challenged society’s cyclical and complacent ideals in their own respective bands, and three decades on they’ve never strayed from their intentions.

Now they come together as a four-piece called OFF! and they’re as confrontational as ever, lunging inside the aesthetic of West Coast hardcore to push life’s most provocative issues to the forefront. The pinch-hitting ‘First Four EPs’ mark their explosive approach for a total of 16 songs in just under 18 minutes. The band split its recording into only two sessions, with the first nine songs completed in January 2010, while the latter half was hammered out on August 25 of last year.
