In the year 2020, Toxic Shock celebrated the tenth anniversary of their professional demolition company disguised as a band. We all know why they couldn't highlight it appropriately that year with an explosive live show for which they are now more than known. That's why they simply organize the party three years later. After 13 years of life of tough choices and hard luck, as they look back on it themselves (with a big wink). That is why we hand over the keys with trembling hands to our Trix Club and Bar, so that they can celebrate their birthday with you. And of course they won't be doing that alone, they curate the rest of the line up all by themselves.
To complete the party, Toxic Shock will also launch completely new work on a 12 inch vinyl EP specially designed for the occasion. This can also be ordered in presale for €15, together with your concert ticket.

Toxic Shock is a thrash, hardcore punk band from Antwerp (Belgium). Started rehearsing in 2010. After a long search for a suitable singer they found a perfect match in Wally. The first Toxic Shock release was a demotape which saw the light of day in 2011. An EP followed a year later. In 2013 Reflections Records put out the Daily Demons album. Since that the band did a split 7" with Iron Reagan, a Record Store Day 7" and worked with Antwerp hip hop masters Team Panini.
The first show the fivesome played was with Black Breath in Antwerp. After that first one, more shows in Belgium, England, Germany, France and Holland followed. They supported bands like Testament, Iron Reagan, Black Breath, Suicidal Tendencies, Slapshot, D.R.I., Negative Approach, Poison Idea, Agnostic Front, Power Trip, Phil Anselmo & the Illegals... And hit the road with Ceremony and Eagulls (England), Cro-Mags (Germany) and Reproach (France).
Recorded an album in Denmark with iconic producer Flemming Rasmussen who worked with Metallica on their classic albums.
Risen from the ashes of Dead Stop, Justice and Rise And Fall, Parasite brings you up-tempo D-beat punk hardcore from Belgium with some melodic guitars. Think Discharge, Tragedy with a pinch of punkrock.
