Rash Decision are a 4 piece punk/thrash band from Cornwall, formed in 2006. After numerous line-up changes and a year’s hiatus, Rash Decision have been back in the game since December 2009 and have played over 600 gigs in total since then.

2008 saw them getting involved with Pumpkin Records after appearing on a number of their compilations, with their debut release ‘Temporary Worker (Clause 4.1)’ unleashed through all major retailers on 1st March 2010. It is currently available from,,, Bigcartel, Pumpkin Records, and through the band themselves as well as many other places (just check google). This is due to a distribution deal with Code 7/Plastic Head, the band still remains unsigned.

With over 10 UK tours under their belt and three European tours so far, 2011 will see them touring constantly, heading out to Europe again in October 2011 and will cover territories such as Germany, Czech Republic and the Netherlands as well as some newer territories.

Their sound can only be described as a mixture between The Casualties, Extreme Noise Terror, Assholeparade, Zeke, and Municipal Waste, combining the aggressiveness and attitude of punk rock with the speed of thrash. It’s an explosive mixture, and when mixed with a tight performance and an all-out sonic attack on stage, the band comes alive with frenetic precision and aggression.

The band have also recently been offered endorsements by Protection Racket and Dovetail guitar strings.

Bands they have played with include: Skindred, Gallows, Ghost of a Thousand, Rolo Tomassi, Trash Talk, The Computers, UK Subs, Discharge, Subhumans, Anti-Nowhere League, Gallows (DJ Set), Restarts, Shortbus Window Lickers, Moral Dilemma and many more.

They also played the Relentless Boardmasters Festival in Newquay in August 2010 on the Vans stage. Rash Decision have managed to break onto the radars of some of the most well-known current punk bands, having landed support slots with The Casualties and The Plight for July 2011 tours, whilst also continuing on their own headline tours and running local 3 day festival ‘Summer Slaughter’ at Live Bar, Truro.

Radio appearances include: The Source FM, Punk Britannia Radio Show, Total Biker FM, and Exeter Phoenix FM amongst others and Redbeard’s Ship O Metal
