Hardcore, like punk before it, has become a global phenomenon, with regional scenes popping up across the globe. Balance opens the doors of the bars and dives that stage Europe’s hardcore bands. The book features striking photography of shows as well as portraits of the artists that make them happen. Alongside these images, the authors provide insights into the informal rules and agreements that give order to the international movement–for instance, bands must speak only English once they’re on stage–allowing readers an insider’s perspective on a music scene that has gone under documented up to this point.
