EP Stream: Drug Control, Stabbed

Formed in 2014, Drug Control’s biggest mission has been to put San Diego Straight Edge on the map. At a time when California’s hardcore scene seems to pale in comparison to its East Coast contingent, Drug Control have been slowly cultivating a scene with such bands as Fury, Discrepancy and Step 4 Change. Ultimately, this landed them on New Age Records which has released such legendary hardcore bands as Unbroken, Lifetime, Abuse of Power and many more.
With lyrics and music that are as straight forward and to the point as the band’s name, Drug Control recently completed their second west coast/midwest tour. They are currently in the process of setting up another west coast tour for April 2017 with the east coast following shortly after.
With influences ranging from Agnostic Front, Warzone, SSD, and Youth of Today, Drug Control aims to be as far reaching as their name implies. After releasing a demo on Criminal Rights Records, Drug Control released their debut 7-inch on Straight and Alert/Coin Toss Records. Ultimately, this is what led to them releasing the “Stabbed” 7-inch on New Age/Straight and Alert Records.
With a “do anything,” “play anywhere” attitude, the band currently finds themselves on some pretty strong bills regularly between San Diego and Los Angeles. It is that work ethic that they feel will make them memorable.
Today, Ghettoblaster has the pleasure of streaming their EP, which was recorded by Alex Jacobelli at Sunsick Studios in San Diego, California.
