UNIT F / Bio

Since its inception, Unit F has been walking the fine line between socio-political consciousness and chaos with their own conflation of hardcore, punk and straight forward rock 'n roll. Through their raw, yet refined sound, they show an elevated awareness of punk rocks inherent strenght: an unwavering commitment to solid music and outspoken commentary.

2014 saw the release of Comes the Day, a full length release which highlights the bands diversity, sonically and lyrically. Following up the Same Ol' Story EP with long-time friend Jim Monroe (Adolescents, Cadillac Tramps) in the producers seat, Comes the Day has eleven tracks of political fury, prophetic warning, social lament and insight, all delivered with pointed percision and pounding persuation.

The Punk rock arena being what it is, things change quickly and it was not long before the line up that helped create Comes the Day, would not be. And since good things come in threes, the line up would change yet again in 2014 before Unit F would be ready to play.

Still led by vocalist Mel Schantz, the quintet puts on a frenetic live show. Lasting veteran Dave Costa remains on guitar, and is joined by the skilled Mark Bolton (45 Grave) also on guitar. Phil Moore (No Victor) is now providing the driving percussive force along with Guillermo Sanchez (No Victor) on bass to round out a group that can own any stage or crowd. Having shared the stage with Bad Religion on their 30th anniversary tour, Youth Brigade, Death by Stereo, Pennywise, TSOL, Dead To Me, Voodoo Glow Skulls and Agnostic Front, as well as 2 stints on the Vans Warped Tour, Unit F has found a way to relate and blend with their contemporaries without totally losing their own unique identity.
