This is where Without Love enter, crashing through more than one stylised era but heavily rounding their sound to that of the seminal, influential and crucially contrasting melody underpinning early 2000s Hardcore Punk-Rock. Without Love and Surrender, then, straight to it. ‘Surrender’ fervently soundtracks the raw, reverberating rebuttal of a bitten tongue…
