Scottish punk band The Exploited, who formed in 1978 during the second wave of UK punk, will play at Vintage Industrial Bar in Zagreb on 13 July as part of their latest tour of Europe.
Despite being an iconic British hardcore punk band, The Exploited has gone through different musical styles throughout its career, starting with an Oi!-influenced street punk style on their first EP and their debut album Punk’s Not Dead (1981). The band then adopted the hardcore punk style that would become its hallmark music style during the 1980s. Around the end of the 1980s, the band moved to a crossover thrash sound, starting with the LP Death Before Dishonour (1987) and continuing with the albums The Massacre (1990), Beat the Bastards (1996) and Fuck the System (2003). The band plans to release a new album in summer 2015.
