We’ve been raving about them for the last year or so! That’s right folks, the mighty ENFORCED will be making their way to Europe and the UK for a series of shows this Summer, and all we can say is: “DO. NOT. MISS. THEM”.

After dropping, what we consider to be ‘The Album of 2021″ ENFORCED are finally touring Europe in the summer to rip your spine clean out of your meat sack!

Knox Colby (vocals) comments: “It’s been one of our main goals as a band to tour Europe. We’re beyond thrilled to play for everyone and show Europe what we’re made of.”

Will Wagstaff (guitar) further adds: “The European music scene is a beast unto itself. I have toured Europe before, and always love to meet all sorts of people, try new food, drinks, music, etc., and learn as much as I can about the different cultures of Europe.

We are excited to play the gigs of course, and we WILL decimate whatever stage we are put on, but we’re just as excited to meet new friends, travel, and share our show with all Europeans for the first time.


Formed in Richmond in 2017 out of shreds of disbanded hardcore and punk bands, ENFORCED quickly found their calling between the undying support of regional punk/hardcore scenes and their respective record collections.

Whether it’s Sacred Reich and Integrity or Bolt Thrower and Amebix, “Pure Crossover Death,” as ENFORCED call their devastating din, devastatingly speared its way through two demos (“Demo 2017” and “Retaliation”) and their no-holds-barred debut, “At the Walls”.
