Supremely bummed that Just Die! called it quits. Matt and I both played in that band, though him longer than I. Despite being criminally under appreciated, they managed to last longer than most hardcore bands and accomplish more than most, and helped shape many young punks and hardcore kids in Asheville and elsewhere (including me). So many bands have come and gone in Asheville’s punk/hardcore scene, but it won’t be the same without Just Die!.
This is my dedication to the band I both played bass in for a time and sang along to as a fan. Tattoo by Mile Rennie (Absolute Art, Richmond, VA).
