Im gonna say it flat out and not pull any punches: Meantime, in my opinion, is the best current hardcore band in Florida. I had a chance to see them over the summer and they had so much energy and the kids were going off. They just released a 7 inch on Double or Nothing Records and have been touring and playing shows nonstop since its release. I was told that the band is straight edge and some of the members are vegan/vegetarian. The band sent me this to help clarify their views:
"We are a straight edge band. Issues that Alex and some members of the band stress are vegetarianism/veganism; using every ounce of hate in your body to change the things you hate about this world; that eating meat/lifting weights/drinking/etc (anything that people think make you manly) are not real ways to judge someone, not relying on a "higher power" as a crutch or one to cast blame to for your own stupid decisions"
Check their Myspace to find out when they are heading out your way.
