New Bedford, MA USA Rich Perusi:
The Dedication were one of Boston area's hardest working hardcore bands.
Their sound was a rare animal, embodying a spit shined honesty rarely found within the confines of contemporary punk rock. They had more in common with the youthful intensity of punk's meager beginnings than any of their contemporaries.
In early 2002, The Dedication "Youth Murder Anthems" CD/7"EP was released on Deathwish.
After becoming one of the most popular up and coming Boston area bands, they disbanded in early 2003. Members of The Dedication went on to play in Sex Positions and The Cattle.
