The positive mental attitude, originally adopted through Bad Brains’ 1982 song “Attitude,” has paid off for HR and Dr. Know. Last year, HR successfully underwent brain surgery for SUNCT – a rare neurological disorder that causes excruciating headaches. Back in 2015, Dr. Know suffered cardiac arrest, from which he survived. With the help of GoFundMe campaigns and benefit shows, recovery has been less burdensome.

The two hardcore-punk pioneers have overcome some of the biggest challenges that would have ended the careers of most musicians. But they have pulled through, hit the road, and even played 2017’s Riot Fest in Chicago.

Now the band is gearing up for studio time to record their next album, as discussed in an interview with Joel Gausten. HR states:

“Any day now, we’re scheduled to go into the studio and do some more work on a new album. The greatest album that we did, Into the Future, came off great, and I really like working with the fellas.”

The new album will follow up 2012’s Into the Future. Additionally, the band has welcomed a new guitarist, Chogyi Lama. This is great news for hardcore and punk. Stay tuned.
