Punk is a lifelong commitment. So whenever your favorite crew disbands, you can probably bet it's just a break. Within a couple years, the gang will drift back together (even if there's only one original member still standing), thrash through a few rehearsals, and schedule an epic comeback show at some awesomely skuzzy bar like Churchill's Pub.
More or less, that's the story with recently reunited Fort Lauderdale hardcore heads Morning Again. Originally formed back in 1995, the outfit spat out a string of splits, EPs, and compilations, and one full-length, As Tradition Dies Slowly, before breaking up in 1999.
In just four short years, though, MA owned its rep as the most brutal vegan punk band in America, shredding vocal cords, guitar strings, and society's lies with unparalleled fury.
In the intervening decade, there have already been two reunions -- the first in 2000 and the next in 2002. So who knows if this time marks the permanent return of Morning Again? Or whether it's just another one-off promo gig to push the band's recently reissued releases? Either way, you can't miss this Saturday's show. Rededicate yourself to punk.
Morning Again reunion show with All Hell Breaks Loose, Remembering Never, Kids Like Us, Knock 'Em Dead, Capsule, Homestretch, and Harbinger. Saturday, December 11. Churchill's Pub, 5501 NE Second Ave., Miami. Door open at 8 p.m. Call 305-757-1807 or visit churchillspub.com.
