Coliseum.

Coliseum have grown to become one of today’s quintessential contemporary punk bands. Successfully melding progressive musicianship, hardcore fervor, and vital social awareness into one constantly evolving artistic vision. Over the last decade Coliseum have released music on a host of labels including; Temporary Residence, Relapse, Level Plane, Auxiliary, and even Deathwish (“True Quiet / Last Wave” 2009). And now, 2015 brings Coliseum and Deathwish together again as their permanent label home.
