the golers / Bio

Formed in 1998 after the dis-banding of Subversion, of which ALL four members were also part of...

GOLERS has built up momentum over the course of 4 albums and many tours. 1999's "South Mountain Style" ushered in the classic Goler sound combining most, if not all extreme metal styles with punk and thrash into one cohesive sound.

Next up was 2004's "2nd Generation", which showcased a slightly more polished sound and with these two albums they began to gain a following in their hometown of Vancouver, BC and surrounding cities.

2009 saw the release of their 3rd album "Backwoods Messages" which has helped spread the Goler word further.

''In ‘n’ Outlaws'' is the first new material from GOLERS since 2009's ''Backwoods Messages''.

The band hit the legendary MUSHROOM STUDIOS [R.I.P.] with Producer/Engineer/Manager ROB SHALLCROSS (GENE HOGLAN, STRAPPING YOUNG LAD, WEST OF HELL) in 2012-2013 to record the new release slated for release this summer.

Bringing their very own brand of hardcore crossover thrash with a punk edge, this Inbred Militia has shared the stage and toured Europe and North America with such acts as TOXIC HOLOCAUST, KREATOR, THE ACCUSED, NAPALM DEATH, SUICIDAL TENDENCIES, DAYGLO ABORTIONS, DESTRUCTION and PRONG.

The GOLERS bass player STUART CARRUTHERS, a.k.a. JOHNNY GOLER, was once recruited by DAVE LOMBARDO for his project GRIP INC. The other GOLERS have been playing with themselves for years!

GOLERS have this to say about their new release: "We are very proud of our newest album 'In ‘n’ Outlaws', it’s a fine example of what we consider to be 'THE GOLER sound'.....It's FAST, EVIL, PUNK-METAL!!!”
