6 piece Auckland fastcore punk band Shitripper formed in 2007 and have been playing their brand of fast, angry, straight-to-the-point music ever since.
Led by an intense and layered duel vocal attack their songs are honest and flatout – most clocking in under  2 minutes. They share their sound and energy with bands like D.R.I, Minor Threat, F Minus & Trash Talk.
With 5 self-released Badboy EPs already under their belt. Shitripper have recently recorded their latest batch of aggressive, poignant and brutal truths on their 2013 release – Brain Defect– the band will be releasing this late June on CD, 7” and on digital download.
“The Auckland-based punk act only know one way forward – full throttle, and that’s exactly what they deliver on this blistering nine-track EP, which clocks in at a barely believable 10 minutes.” – NZ Herald
“Shitripper is thrashy, loud, abrasive loose and rugged – just as it should be” –Rip It Up
“Ferocious, focused and passionate, this is Shitrippers finest release to date and a short, sharp shock of pure adrenaline. A release that doesn’t mess around, from a band that doesn’t mess around” –
