The Exploited are a Scottish punk outfit hailing from Edinburgh. Formed in 1978, the band currently consists of frontman Wattie Buchan, guitarist Matt Justice, bassist Irish Rob, and drummer Wullie Buchan. They are known as one of the UK's most politically outspoken thrash bands.
Originally starting out as an old-skool "Oi!" style punk outfit, The Exploited would go through an umber of style and line-up changes over the years, and today create a sound akin to thrash metal and hardcore. Their debut album 'Punks Not Dead' was released in 1981, and a string of LPs and singles was to follow, through to 1996's 'Beat The Bastards'. They last released a record in 2002 with 'Fuck the System'.
This year, the punks are back. The Exploited will tour the UK throughout March 2018. They also have a date at Riverside in Newcastle in the diary for November. Catch them live by checking out the tour dates and concert ticket information below on Stereoboard.
