About:

A hardcore punk band from Reno, Nevada. Formed in 1979 by brothers Kevin Seconds and Steve Youth and playing their first show on March 2, 1980, 7 Seconds are well known for bringing positive ideals into hardcore punk and are considered "living legends" by many people in the underground punk scene. They helped along the Straight Edge Youth Crew movement in the 80's Hardcore scene. They have released numerous albums since 1981, including Crew, Walk Together, Rock Together, New Wind, Good to Go and the recently released Take It Back, Take It On, Take It Over.

In the late 1980's, the band began to grow musically as they explored other sounds. Critics of this switch to more complex and slower music often compared the band to U2. Albums from this period include the Praise EP, Ourselves, and Soulforce Revolution. However, the band has since returned to their hardcore punk roots where they can claim more of a following. They also appeared on the 1985 hardcore compilation Cleanse the Bacteria. The band is still recording music and touring America, Europe and Japan to this day.
