OPPOSITION RISING is a new Boston based DIY Hardcore Punk band!
Formed in December 2010 by four well-seasoned veterans of the Boston Punk and Hardcore scene with the intent of mixing our favorite elements from all the sub-genres of Punk into one aggressive and brutal yet catchy sound with a strong DIY ethic and intelligent lyrics! Soon after forming the band we began playing shows locally and working on our first record!
OPPOSITION RISING began recording their debut release entitled “Aftermathematics” in the summer of 2011! Due to the cost of recording and pressing a pro-sounding record by four guys that are broke it took a while but our debut album was officially/digitally released in November of 2011! Soon after the LP came out with the help of some very supportive DIY labels that we can’t thank enough! The LP is a split between our label OPPOSITION RECORDS and our friends at ACTIVE REBELLION (UK), CRASH ASSAILANT RECORDS, PIRATES PRESS RECORDS, RIOT SKA RECORDS (UK), RODENT POPSICLE and TANKCRIMES RECORDS! The album was recorded by Richard Marr at GALAXY PARK STUDIOS and mastered by Jeff Lipton at PEERLESS MASTERING! The production sounds great and we’d like to thank them all for their continued support of our musical endeavors!
OPPOSITION RECORDS is the record label formed by the band to release our music and merchandise our way! When we formed the band we decided to create something completely DIY so that we would have control over all band decisions and ownership of all our music! One of those decisions was to make all our music available FREE for download at our website and all the usual online resources! Check out our media page for music and our contact page for links!
OPPOSITION RISING has a set it and forget it approach to our social media sites. We only maintain them to get you FREE music and information from the band! We suggest you use their corporate bandwidth to download our music especially if we exceed our limit at our website. If you want something higher quality than mp3’s use our Bandcamp or Soundcloud sites! Please don’t use these pages to contact the band, as we don’t check them often! If you want to get in touch with us please email us at
Thank you for any and all support!
