Inspired by ’90s rate steel — especially by Bay Region steel/punk crossover rings Cro-Mags and Corrosion of Conformity — Iron Age group formed within their house city of Austin, TX, in 2005. Expecting to help expand blur the series between hardcore and thrash, after going through several adjustments they eventually chosen a long lasting lineup: vocalist Jason Tarpey, drummer Reed Thomas, bassist Matt Jackson, and duel guitarists Matt Jackson and Wade Allison. After launching their first demonstration on Tarpey’s very own label, Following Level Information, the group implemented it up using the Regular Struggle full-length on Youngblood Information. Several 7″s and EPs had been pressed for this period and after some comprehensive touring, there have been even more lineup adjustments. Thomas quit the music group, and Tarpey’s sibling Jared and roommate Logan arrived to the fold.
