Formed by brothers Lou and Pete Koller in the
mid-'80s, Sick of It All became a seminal band in
the New York City hardcore scene. While remaining
true to their roots and without compromising
their style, Sick of It All have progressed from
an indie band with a strong live following to a
major-label act touring with the likes of Helmet
and Rancid. Sick of It All remain a vital
influence on the hardcore scene. They released
Built to Last in early 1997 to critical acclaim
and an expanding audience.

The brothers came up with the band's bluntly
expressive name in their parents' basement in
1984. SOIA's original lineup -- with Lou on
vocals, Pete on guitar, Rich Cipriano on bass,
and Arman Majidi on drums -- released an initial
self-titled EP in 1987 on the independent
Revelation label. After playing N.Y.C. clubs like
CBGB and building a strong local following, SOIA
released, on the Combat label, their first album,
Blood Sweat & No Tears, a collection of 19 songs
of intense energy, 17 of which clocked in at less
than two minutes. Following the release of the
album, SOIA embarked on their first national
tour. Majidi left during the tour to work with
Rest in Pieces and was replaced by Max Capshaw.
Majidi rejoined to record the We Stand Alone EP,
which was released in early 1991 on the
Relativity label. Neither Majidi nor Cipriano
played with the Koller brothers on the tour
preceding the release; Eddie Coen substituted on
bass, plus E.K. on drums.

SOIA recorded and released Just Look Around for
Relativity in 1992 with the original lineup
intact, and then Cipriano left for good prior to
an international tour that brought SOIA to Europe
and Japan. Craig Setari came on to play bass and
to establish the lineup that has remained intact
through the release of Built to Last. Just Look
Around was instrumental in revitalizing the
declining N.Y.C. hardcore scene. SOIA left the
Relativity label after the release of the album,
citing dissatisfaction with the efforts of the
indie label. They released Scratch the Surface in
1994 on the Eastwest label, facing accusations of
selling out from fans and industry members.

Two releases in 1995 on the Lost & Found label --
a live album entitled Live in a World Full of
Hate and a collection of early recordings,
Spreading the Hardcore Reality -- bridged the gap
between the releases of Scratch the Surface and
Built to Last, which was released on the Elektra
label. During that time, SOIA continued to tour
extensively, including visits to South and
Central America.

SOIA has suffered from associations with
violence. Frequent fights at early shows gave
them the unwanted and unfounded image of
condoning violence. The bandmembers have
attempted to disassociate the group from the
violent acts of their fans. In the early '90s,
Wayne Lo, a Massachusetts prep student, shot and
killed several classmates while wearing a Sick of
It All T-shirt, and The New York Times granted
space to the bandmembers to issue a statement of
vindication, in which they explained how Lo had
misinterpreted their lyrics. Rolling Stone also
ran an editorial in defense of the band.
"Goatless," a song on Scratch the Surface, is
inspired by the episode.

SOIA's steady progression has been colored by
numerous accusations of selling out. The band
once debated the pseudo-anarchist band Born
Against live on N.Y.U. radio about that very
subject. The band generally dismisses any such
accusations. Only in recent years have the
members of the group been able to give up their
"day jobs." They are not overly concerned about
their image, and in fact have stated in
interviews that they have no image. They are more
concerned about writing music inspired by real
events in their own lives, and performing it with
more emphasis on impact and energy than on

Still going strong into the new millennium, Sick
of It All returned with their second release on
Fat Wreck Chords, Yours Truly, in the fall of
2000. Next came the band documentary video The
Story So Far in 2001, their contribution to Fat's
Live in a Dive series (2002), the studio album
Life on the Ropes (2003), and the B-sides
collection Outtakes for the Outcast (2004).
Marking 20 years together in 2006, they began the
year over in the U.K. with Dropkick Murphys
before their ninth full-length, Death to Tyrants,
dropped in April on Abacus. The band spent the
next four years touring, and finally returned
with its ninth album, Based on a True Story, in
April of 2010.
