The Casualties – We Are All We Have


The Casualties are an American street punk band from New York City, formed in 1990. The Casualties members aimed to return to what they viewed as the “golden era” of street punk, embodied by bands such as The Exploited, Charged GBH, Eskorbuto, which they believed had disappeared by 1985. During the early years, the lineup was stable. The initial lineup consisted of Colin and Jorge on vocals, Yureesh on drums, Hank on guitar, and Mark on bass. Colin stepped out for several months to finish his education while Rachel, Rivits’ singer, took his place.

At this point, Colin, Jorge, Yureesh, and Mark put together a demo. Fred replaced Hank, but then Fred left to go to school, and Scott from C-Squat filled in. Another guitarist, Steve, from Distraught, also filled in during this period. The EP 40 Oz. Casualty was recorded. By 1992, the band was touring and building up a fan base in NYC. In 1993, bassist Mark and guitarist Fred were replaced by Mike and Jake, respectively and Yureesh was replaced by Shawn on drums in 1994. In 1995, the band’s second release, the “A Fuckin Way Of Life” E.P. was released on Eyeball Records. In 1996, Shawn left the band, and Meggers of the Rivits came to fill in and became the regular drummer. The line-up of Jorge, Jake, Mike and Meggers continued until 1997. Johnny (Of The Krays) served as bassist until 1998 (a position more permanently filled by Rick later that year).

The Casualties have continued to produce high-energy recordings and they have done US and international tours (e.g., Europe, Japan, and El Salvador). Under Attack was released on SideOneDummy Records in 2006, and they toured virtually non-stop for three years in support of the album. In December 2009, The Casualties toured alongside Hatebreed, The Acacia Strain, Crowbar, and Thy Will Be Done as part of the Stillborn Fest.
In the summer of 2012, The Casualties co-headlined the very first Tonight We Unite tour along with Nekromantix, where they played their first album For The Punx in its entirety. It was the first time The Casualties have played the album through ever since they released it in 1997.
The Casualties will release their new album titled Resistance in September 2012 through Season of Mist.
The Casualties are confirmed to play Rebellion Festival in 2013. They will share the stage with the likes of: The Exploited, Special Duties, Chron Gen and Anti-Establishment.

We Are All We Have is the eighth full-length studio album from American street punk band, The Casualties, on the record label, SideOneDummy Records. The band started a headlining tour in support of the album on August 20, 2009.
