  1. Bobby Adams played guitar on the Out the Shizzy record.

    I'm one of the few people that seems to like 7 Seconds non-hardcore stuff as much as their hardcore stuff. In fact in some ways I prefer what they released in the mid-to-late '80s and early '90s to the hardcore records (with the exception of Walk Together, Rock Together which is the band's best release). Praise, Ourselves, Soulforce Revolution, and Out the Shizzy are all really under-rated and far too often ignored.

    7 Seconds recently signed to Rise Records and are planning on putting out a 7" and a full-length.
