Reckless Upstarts hail from a working class city that has seen its fair share of ups and downs. They share in this struggle and determination, and embody that element in their music. Over the years, they have expanded and carved out a sound of their own that represents the working class ethics of Oi! and street-punk, coupled with songs that, at their core, are representative of not only their hometown, but so many other cities in the 21st century. Consistently upholding the values of a strong social conscience in their music, the band stands on the conviction that there is no tolerance for intolerance in the music scene, or society as a whole.
Over the years, they've played across Canada, the US, and Europe, and have shared the stage with bands such as The Last Resort, Oi Polloi, Monty Neysmith, Swingin' Utters, Harrington Saints, The Prowlers, and The Press.
