It's 1984, D.R.I. had just gotten back from the "Rock Against Reagan" U.S. tour opening for M.D.C. and the Dead Kennedys. Once they perfected their new songs, they recorded the "Violent Pacification" 7" which would be D.R.I.'s next release and done in conjuntion with M.D.C.'s label, R Radical Records. Now after being out of print for 26 years, Beer City Records is proud to reissue "Violent Pacification" in its original 7" format.
