SALVO play hard-hitting, no-frills UK hardcore, influenced by classic 80’s and 90’s bands such as Ripcord, Negative Approach and Citizen’s Arrest. They feature ex and current members of DEAD WRONG, METAL DUCK, VITRIOLIC RESPONSE, TOUT SUITE and THE VON RECTUMSTEIN COALITION.
Based around Manchester, Ste, Myke and Joe started writing songs together in 2015. They soon recruited Dave on drums and in 2016 played gigs alongside the likes of VOORHEES and GRAND COLLAPSE, as well as at Common Ground Festival. That year also saw them release a demo CD and split cassette with TOUT SUITE on Prejudice Me Records.
In Spring 2017 they recruited Tom from TOUT SUITE on second guitar, shared a stage with F.U.s and MDC at Bloodstains Festival, and later that year recorded with Bri Doom at the 1in12, for what would become a split a 7” with FEAR INSIGHT.
SALVO write songs about the fear, alienation and anxiety that are symptoms of modern life in Britain.
