If you’re looking for an album to fire up a revolution or lose your shit to, Ganbaru’s debut album Declaration is for you. The initiation into an energetic assault of hard-core punk is immediate and lasts till the final chord of closing tune Closing The Gap.

From legal challenges to tour car crashes, and a plethora of other setbacks in between, the band have pushed through to deliver an album that is a testament to their tenacity, persistence and hard work. The thirteen hard-hitting tracks on Declaration are like flames burning and exploding from the fuel of their setbacks.

With rapid riffs, hook-laden melody lines and harsh vocals screaming lyrics of positivity and social awareness, this is a record you need to turn up loud and thrash to when you’re neighbours aren’t around.
