Tickets are on sale now for D.R.I.‘s July 23rd return to Dublin on their 30th Anniversary Tour.
D.R.I. were one of the first bands to fuse hardcore punk with thrash metal, along with Suicidal Tendencies and Corrosion of Conformity. Starting off as a speedy, straight-ahead punk band, they gradually mixed more elements of heavy metal into their sound; as they did so, their songs got longer and featured more sections and more variety in tempo.
D.R.I. managed the then-rare feat of crossing over to metal audiences while retaining their skatepunk and hardcore fan bases — they had something for all those audiences to love (or hate). “
