2022 edition of Los Angeles hardcore festival Sound and Fury is now legendary thanks to all the crazy video footage and the record attendance that helped confirm the moment hardcore is having right now. Needless to say, the 2023 lineup announcement is highly anticipated, and now we finally have it!

This announcement follows shorly after we got
the news that the Young brothers (no strangers to Sound & Fury) were bringing Twitching Tongues back. A new expanded and remixed version of their debut LP Sleep Therapy is now streaming (their 2010 demo and covers of Pentagram and Type O Negative included). They also just released a HardLore podcast episode dedicated to the history of the band and the album. You can listen to that whereever you get podcasts, or watch the YouTube version below. Colin's band God's Hate is also on this year's lineup.
One of last year's most talked about crazy sets was Australia's
Speed (their first US show!), and they're making a return appearace this year. You can watch video of their 2022 set below.
Possibly the biggest surprise on this year's lineup is dance punk revivalists
Model/Actriz who are neither hardcore nor adjacent, but who definitely fit right in with their great live show and amazing 2023 album. Them on here makes us what to go even more than we already do.
