Strike Anywhere

"Strike Anywhere" is a punk rock/melodic hardcore band from Richmond, Virginia. They formed in 1999 after the demise of Thomas Barnett's previous band, Inquisition, taking their name from the Inquisition song "Strike Anywhere". Their music is characterized by fast tempos, catchy melodies, and emotionally-charged vocals delivered via shouting and singing. The band has received a great deal of attention lately, after their music appeared in 2 Tony Hawk videos games, ''Tony Hawk's Underground 1'' in 2003 and ''Tony Hawk's American Wasteland'' in 2005, and after being featured in the documentary ''http://www.wakeupscreamingmovie.com Wake Up Screaming'' about the 2005 Vans Warped Tour. Strike Anywhere recently finished recording their latest album ''Dead FM'' with producer Brian McTernan.

Strike Anywhere is a political band, with lyrics touching on such issues as police brutality, anti-capitalism, women's rights, and globalization. They have also contributed tracks to political benefit albums, such as a live version of "Sunset on 32nd" for ''1157 Wheeler Avenue: A Memorial for Amadou Diallo'' and "To the World" for the ''Rock Against Bush, Vol. 1'' album.
