Outright are a female-fronted independent hardcore band from Melbourne that impressed me a while ago when they supported Swedish punks Refused on their final hoorah.

Last week they supported thrash gurus D.R.I. at The Hi-Fi in Melbourne and impressed me yet again (2 for 2). Vocalist Jelena Goluza has a fine set of lungs for hardcore and the band members are all good at performing scissor-kicks. I’m not entirely sure about the drummer’s ability to do scissor-kicks, but I’m not claiming that he can’t either, the jury is still out on that one.

The band are hoping to release a new album later in the year, but for now you can enjoy their 7″ Dedication released in 2012:

For the tight arses out there among you (I’m looking at you, kid) it will set you back $1 on Bandcamp… put down that chocolate bar and its yours!

I like their passionate lyrics in the song State of Denial which supports gay marriage rights “A message of intolerance, Through propaganda of hate, Teaching prejudice in place of love, Is this the world you’d create?” Outright also show their passion by donating funds towards Minus18 an organisation that provides support to same sex attracted youth in Australia.

Punk is always better when it stands for something, don’t you think?
