MOXIEBEAT play dirty, bass driven hardcore that reminds me of a few bands right away; The Catalyst, Ruptures, Doomriders, Maximum R'n'R, Rye Coalition and Dangers. EP talk about it.

There are lots of different styles going on:
-"Avoiding You" has a dark, City Of Caterpillar-esque outro
-"Old News Forever" gets so hard I thought I was listening to the new Zozobra record
-"Art of the City" is very The Catalyst, but also includes some sass that reminds me of The Blood Brothers (albeit much grimier), but is more musically in line with Ruptures.

I do believe this band is coming through Toronto next week. If that's the case, I will be posting live videos soon.
