Monster Squad: Strength Through Pain

1. Product Details

Monster Squad's debut LP Strength Through Pain is back in print for it's 20th anniversary!This 2004 LP was the definitive statement their fans were waiting for after 7 years of the band honing their sound and their message on tapes, CD-Rs, 7's, comps, and splits, and it introduced them to wider audiences across the world! 'Strength Through Pain -you can't destroy the heart inside' was a lyric written by the band's original guitarist Dave Gale in 1998. It's message of defiance against oppressive forces, internal or external, had become a central theme for the band and their audience. It was a rallying cry to overcome mental illness, abuse at home, government persecution, and all other waysyoung people are kept down. After Dave's departure, the band crafted a new version of the song. The bonus flexi included with this re-issue of the LP features the original version of the song for the first time ever, along with 'Won't Conform, ' another rare track from the era. The release of this record brought an even more ambitious slate of touring for the band, playing to bigger and bigger audiences, and crossing over to Europe for the first time. Reissues in both North America and Europe over the past 20 years have only solidified it's place as the essential starting point for the band's LP catalog. TRACK LIST: SIDE A 1. 'TillThe End 2. D. F.
