After a 33 year hiatus, legendary Boston punk rock band The Proletariat has decided to reunite. Original members Richard Brown, Peter Bevilacqua and Tom McKnight will be joined by guitarist Dan Sanders(from the Providence band Idle Rich). The reunion comes on the heels of the vinyl re-release of the bands groundbreaking debut “Soma Holiday” on SS Records.

Inspired by The Buzzcocks, The Jam, PiL, and Wire, the young band was to tap into the high energy hardcore punk swirling around them and infuse it with art-punk excitement. By the time that their classic debut, Soma Holiday, hit The Proletariat were being referred to as America's Gang of Four and a more supercharged Pop Group. And they were that but more. The intelligent anger of the band was a lifeline to many suburban American rejects, young people who knew that life under Reagan wasn't right.

The band is currently recording material for 2018 release.
