Storm of Sedition

Storm of Sedition is a DIY anti-civilization anarchist crust-punk band founded in Victoria B.C. Canada (Occupied Lekwungen Territories) in 2011. The band began with the intention of bringing an anti-civilization anarchist perspective into the punk milieu that is so often dominated by cliche, limiting, reformist and leftist rhetoric. Lyrically, the band promotes the abandonment of all notions of reform and progress in order to open up dialogues around destroying and ridding ourself of civilization.

Rarely do "political" bands go beyond questioning capitalism and the state. Often they push leftist-anarchist ideas that serve only to reproduce the social machine and channel people's rage in pacified, single issues that can be easily managed and recuperated by the system. This is unfortunate because we attribute all the issues often talked about, whether they're war, ecological devastation, wage slavery and exploitation, or various forms of domination and oppression, to the Leviathanic system known as civilization. With an anti-political approach that attacks mass-society itself along with all its social and political institutions, we avoid the traps and pitfalls of activism and traditional anarchism and the fixation with the reform, rearrangement, and re management of civilization and it's various apparatuses.

Civilization's domestication attempts to crush and control both our body and spirit. If we want to break free, we must avert, attack, and destroy the dominant civilized culture itself, with its many reifications and abstractions, its humanist, reason based thinking, and it's confining morality and ideologies. We must think regionally, and effectively strategize how to fight back against the seemingly endless technologization, urbanization, and industrialization happening around us. Towards an undomesticated, feral existence!

Within the next few years, the band plans to tour throughout North America and possibly Europe in support of our upcoming full length LP, titled Decivilize, that will be released in early 2016 with the help of labels Profane Existence, Doomed Society, Neanderthal Stench, Criminal Attack, and Black Raven Records.
