Reagan Youth was one of the early New York hardcore bands. Formed in 1980, this was their first release, in '84. They released a second album in '89 but it lacks the power and aggression of this classic. They split up the same year. In 1993 singer Dave Insurgent committed suicide after his prostitute girlfriend was found in the back of Joel Rifkin's truck. The band reformed in the late aughts to tour and plan a new recording. They're still touring however I believe no original members are left and as far as I know, no new release has emerged.
