Against is an Australian hardcore punk band from Brisbane, Australia. Vocalist Greg first formed the group in September 2001, with the intention of having fun with some friends and playing hardcore music with heart and a message.[citation needed]

After signing with Common Bond Records, Against recorded and released their second EP, entitled My Hate My Choice, to critical acclaim and has now sold over 2000 copies to date.[when?] Constant touring across Australia with bands such as Mindsnare and Champion, as well as sharing the stage with such bands as AFI, Terror, Madball, Cro-Mags, Boysetsfire and Silence The Epilogue, has helped pave their path to success and allowed them to thoroughly "road-test" their sound.[citation needed]

With Against's first album entitled Left For Dead, released on Melbourne-based Trial & Error Records in November 2006, the band have taken their sound to the next level.[citation needed] Against's second studio release, Loyalty and Betrayal, was released on 20 August 2007.[citation needed]
