Rival Schools have teamed with RFC for a 20th anniversary deluxe reissue of their legendary debut full-length, ‘United By Fate’.

The standard edition/digital is out and in stores, and the deluxe/collectors editions will be in stores in time for RSD Black Friday on November 25th. Your favorite online and brick and mortar retailers should also be stocked. Featuring a lineup of NYHC greats–guitarist/vocalist Walter Schreifels (Gorilla Biscuits, Youth Of Today Quicksand), drummer Sammy Siegler (Youth Of Today, Judge, CIV), bassist Cache Tolman (Iceburn, Institute) and Ian Love (Burn, Atlantic/Pacific)–Rival Schools‘ 2001 debut is a post-hardcore masterpiece that managed to seamlessly blend the sheer kinetic energy of aggressive music with deeply melodic rock songwriting. Not only is the album packed with untouchably catchy and innovative songs, it also solidified Schreifels legacy as a trailblazer and created a blueprint that allowed many younger musicians in hardcore to feel comfortable with allowing themselves to grow and change creatively. This re-release of ‘United By Fate’ offers a chance to rediscover one of the most impressive and influential post-hardcore albums of all time.
