We have just finished recording an EP with 6 new songs. The release date is September 4th 2012. CDs will be released on DEAD CITY Records and the Vinyl will be release on CUPCAKE Records.
Yuppicide are a four piece Hardcore/Punk band that formed in Brooklyn, New York, USA.
Joe, Steve, and Jesse met while attending art school; John Lynch was recruited on drums and in 1988 Yuppicide was formed. They quickly recorded a 9-song demo tape and began playing at CBGB's, Abc-No-Rio, basements, backyards, squats, living rooms; anywhere and everywhere that they were allowed.
In 1989 they recorded a 7" EP with world-famous Don Fury. This was initially released on 'Evac Records', but the band soon forged an alliance with New York's 'Wreck*Age' Records, and the 7" was re-released by them.
Their first full length: "Fear Love" (Wreck*Age) was released in 1990, after which they toured through Europe for 7 weeks building a strong fan base that has stayed with them ever since.
Their second full length: "Shinebox" was released in 1993 (Wreck-Age), and marked a stylistic progression, aided by the addition of drummer Pete Guinan.
By their third full length release: "Dead Man Walking" (Wreck*Age), Yuppicide had carved out a niche all their own, with songs that had elements of punk, and the power of hardcore, but a style that was solely Yuppicide!
Yuppicide's songs have consistently dealt with issues of: questioning authority, censorship, and problematic relationships. With lyrics that encompasses various characters (assassins to anorexic teenage girls), and a musical style that combines Punk, Hardcore, Oi and metal; Yuppicide has rarely walked the common NYHC path.
In early 2010, Yuppicide reunited to promote the release of a complete discography: Anthology '88 - '98. Since their main record label Wreck*Age had been out of business for some years, none of their material was available. This double disc release has every studio recording they ever made.
They decided to launch this on line store because they wanted to provide Merchandise to their fans at a reasonable price.
