Substance is a modern sounding Straight edge youth crew band from Charlotte, North Carolina. I happen to be a real sucker for this sound of hardcore.
Like almost every modern youth crew band Substance is off course influenced by Chain of strength. But late 90’s youth crew bands like Sportswear and Hands tied also left their mark here. And since they included a Crippled youth and a Bold cover on this tape, I assume it is save to say Matt Wranke and his bands are an influence as well.
