Pure Noise Recording Artist
Based out of Chula Vista, CA, Take Offense is a crossover hardcore band that has been together for close to 15 years, an eternity for any group in that scene. “As clichÈ as this sounds, we truly love playing and are still passionate about it,” says lead guitarist Greg Cerwonka.
Take Offense have spent the past 14 years storming venues across their native California and elsewhere, repping the Golden State on tours with Trapped Under Ice, Madball, Agnostic Front, Turnstile and more. The band has toured the U.S., Mexico, and Canada, as well as embarking on multiple tours of Europe.
Since their 2005 debut, Take Offense have released a handful of EPs, with their debut full-length Tables Will Turn premiering in 2011. They followed up with United States of Mind in 2013. Tensions on High, their latest release via Flatspot, is five bouts of crossover thrash, served up with a skate-punk sneer.
Take Offense has signed a worldwide record deal with Pure Noise. A new album will arrive later this year.
