Sporting an unusual line up that features two vocalist (Ryan Olp being the second screamer), Warcola has been on the Dallas scene since 2006, bringing havoc to several Deep Ellum night spots.
“Most people say it’s a pretty chaotic show,” says Renicks. “We’ve been known to swing from the rafters.”
Warcola worships at the alter of such classic American hardcore acts as Minor Threat, Black Flag and The Misfits, throwing melody and restraint out the window. The band is about to head out on a mini-tour, hitting Austin, New Orleans and Baton Rouge before coming back to headline a show at The Red Blood Club on July 6, playing with Casualties, Time Again, The Scandals and Excess Enemy.
