INSPIRE is a Sao Paulo Straight Edge Hardcore band active between 1998-2001. The band was formed by members of the most important edge bands in Brazil of the 90’s: PERSONAL CHOICE, SELF CONVICTION and POINT OF NO RETURN. In later years they formed bands like I SHOT CYRUS, B.U.S.H., BANDANOS and O INIMIGO. Inspire managed to release only one demo in 1998, which featured four songs of high-energy, powerful youth-crew influenced hardcore. One of the songs went on to appear as part of an international compilation More Than The X On Our Hands” (2000, Commitment Records). Inspire were the first straight-edge band from South America to tour Europe. In 2009 Inspire returned to the stage and now perform more frequently. It is a perfect time to remind everyone of the output of this band. This Inspire 7″ contains four songs from their excellent 1998 demo. This is a co-release between Refuse Records and True Spirit Records (Brazil).
