The first time I saw ATDI was as an opening band on a 3 band bill, and I’d never heard them up to that point. They had just released the Vaya ep.
I can’t tell you how much these guys were a game changer for me. They, without a doubt, redefined what punk meant [or could mean] and what a live performance could be.
A song like Arc Arsenal when played loud still makes me react- I want to equal parts destroy something and create something amazing.
