Razors in the Night hails from Boston, Massachusetts, USA. Composed of ex-members of Pure Impact, Beware! and The Acro-Brats, they fuse hardcore and Oi! in a good way.
Their songs range from the thrashy, in-your-face assault, "Hipster Holocaust", to the catchy "Carry On", to the anthemic Oi! ballad, "Skinheads Alright." Lyrical topics include drugs, alcohol, unemployment, depression, heartache, and loose women with looser ethics. What else? Their musical influences include Oi! and Boston hardcore bands such as Blood for Blood, Slapshot, American Nightmare, Dropkick Murphys, and Death Before Dishonor.
They first performed in February 2009. Since then, they have shared stages with bands including The Business, Resistance 77, Reagan Youth, The Unseen, The Casualties and The Mighty Mighty Bosstones. In 2010, they were nominated by the Boston Phoenix for Best New Act and Best Punk Act. The Boston Herald described the band as "the new vanguards of ... Boston hardcore" and one reviewer described one of their performances as "true in your face, shaved head, Doc wearing Boston music and a show well worth your hard earned working class dollar."
