IN DEFENCE loves the month October. It’s their favorite time of the year. Halloween is approaching, I’m (Ben Crew) finally turning 21 and IN DEFENCE is getting ready to hit the road again. This time around we are headed on a midwestern romp where we will play a basement show with PHOBIA and help BURNING SONS celebrate the release of their new 7″ record “Reflective Confessions”. If you buy an IN DEFENCE LP, CD or T-SHIRT you can get the BURNING SONS record FREE along with a hand screened “NO WAR BUT STAR WARS” patch. Supplies are limited. Act quick. Once these special freebies are gone… they are gone! And trust me you are going to want the Burning Sons 7″. It rips! (All prices are postage paid in U.S.)
This edition of the “PE Special series” was brought to you by our friends at ANTI-CORP Records down in Nashville. Anti-Corp has been a solid trade partner with PE in the past (when we were running a distro) and released solid records like DOOM SIREN, IN RUINS and RESISTANT CULTURE as well as countless others. This time around they bring you THETAN, a two piece brutal as fuck power-violence band featuring ex-members of SANCTIONS. The welcome to whine country 7″ is a rager from start to finish… knocking out 10 solid tracks of no bullshit, in your face audio destruction!
The other half of this special was brought to you by our friends at CRASH ASSAILANT & BEZERKER RECORDS who released this split 7″ between Profane’s own IN DEFENCE and PARTY BY THE SLICE (featuring members of ENABLER – Southern Lord, PROTESTANT – Halo of Flies & GET RAD – Gilead Media). These bands have no shortage of serious talent but they seem content to have some “not so serious” fun on here as they take humorous jabs at each other while duking it out over their favorite foods… TACOS & PIZZA. This one comes with the hand numbered limited edition In Defence “tacos up your ass” insert.
PE Special #13 comes with:
- THETAN welcome to whine country 7″ (color vinyl)
- IN DEFENCE / PARTY BY THE SLICE tacos vs. pizza 7″ (w/ ltd. insert)
- Randomly selected orders will get FREE shit! ORDER NOW!

PE Special #5 includes a limited edition Wartorn cassette (Tainting Tomorrow with the Blood of Yesterday) and one of three available randomly chosen In Defence patches. This cassette is limited to 50, are hand numbered and put out by Profane Existence & Bezerker Records. They were sold on the Wartorn/In Defence tour and we only have 10 remaining. Wartorn is from Appleton, Wisconsin and formed in 2004. Majority of the members are also members of Dresden. This cassette is originally an LP. The In Defence patches are Legocy of Brutality, Pizza Bastard and Fuck Pizza Sympathy. In Defence is from Minneapolis with their first demo in 1989. In 2006 they realized they should only dedicate half their time to taco liberation in order to restart the band and have been kickin’ (pizza) ass ever since. BUY HERE!
ANTISECT (UK Anarcho-Punk Legends)
Antisect are from England formed in 1982. Their debut album, In Darkness There is No Choice, was released in 1983. They played a significant role punk rock history, and are said to have been a major influence upon “black-clad, politically charged punks over the last 30 years”. The band addressed issues of animal rights and social justice and were among the instigators of the squat venue scene in the mid to late 1980s. Members lived the lifestyle of being either on the road or part of the vibrant London squat scene of the time. They toured extensively both in the UK and Europe, before splitting up in 1987. The band reformed in May 2011. The fact that they are touring the U.S. and playing the Triple Rock (Minneapolis, MN) on Sunday June 3rd is epic! If you live in Minneapolis or anywhere within a day’s drive we recommend going to this show.
MISERY (MPLS Crust Legends)
Misery have been making noise in Minneapolis since the late 80’s. Their music and message have been heard around the world… in fact their original vocalist, Al Long, left Misery in 1988 to join legendary New York based anarcho-punk band Nausea. Word on the street has it that he is back in town and will be on stage singing with Misery at this gig. I for one am looking forward to this!
WARTORN (Appleton, WI)
Bitty, famed PE Columnist, and co. will be headed to Minneapolis to make a special appearance at this gig and kick off their West Coast Tour with Profane label-mates IN DEFENCE.
IN DEFENCE (Mpls Pizza Crust… ???)
Local Minneapolis taco thrashers In Defence will kick things off.
