1981 Straight Edge Clothing have announced a two day festival to celebrate hardcore music and a hardcore lifestyle this May.  The festival titled “Bringing It Back For The Kids” will feature performances from some of the most savagely followed bands in hardcore today including Terror, Stick To Your Guns and Casey Jones.  1981’s Cliff Wiener said “We wanted to throw a fest with a positive atmosphere, great music and a variety of activities.”  Some of those activities announced today include a dodgeball tournament, spin the bottle, twister and more in the works including food themes as well.

1981 Clothing was founded in 2005 by Wiener and Alex Kenny.  It started out as a straight edge clothing brand but has now expanded to include vegan and vegetarian clothing as well. 1981 was formed with the intention of making the shirts as fun and unique as it is to be part of the hardcore scene world wide. Wiener says “It was very important to us to make  the focus of 1981 to be unity, hardcore and straight edge and get people off the violence and gang mentality that is sometimes associated with straight edge.”  In addition to the clothing line Wiener and Kenny are strong supporters of music with multiple companies to their name which has included releasing records and launching tours at times. As 567 Records they have released albums by Jeremy Enigk (Sunny Day Real Estate) and Further Seems Forever, as Royal Family Clothing they have released exclusive limited edition t-shirts for bands like Coheed & Cambria and Whitechapel.  Recently they have started a management company called Big Hit Management to manage up and coming bands.

Heaven's Metal: An Oral History of the Genesis of Christian Metal

Heaven's Metal

When rock emerged from blues and 'heavy metal' began to surface, faith-based metal acts also rose to start their own journeys. Initially shunned by both believers and non-believers, they were fighting for their spot at the table, ultimately building a legacy that would go on to change the genre forever. HM presents an oral history of the beginning of Christian metal music, featuring Guardian, Tourniquet, Holy Soldier, Whitecross, and, of course, Stryper.
