• originated from the East Berlin Punk legend REASORS EXZESZ (est. 1985), 
continued in 1991 as Rough Called with a stage debut at an international 
festival in Nancy and changed the name to Punishable Act in 1993
  • hundreds of concerts later Punishable Act is still the same in the most 
positive sense: we still have a lot of anger, yet we enjoy to play and do so 
energetically! We don’t follow trends, we never finished no school (old 
school, new school, high school). Our identity is classical clean cut hardcore!
  • we have performed on a variety of larger European festivals: 
among others “OPEN CORE”, “SUMMER MADNESS”, “REPTILE FESTIVAL”, 
”HARDCORE UNITED” and “WITH FULL FORCE”. 
We also went on the festival tour “SUPPORT YOUR HARDCORE – SCENE” 
with RYKER’S / MURDERED ART / 3RD STATEMENT / PROPHECY OF RAGE, 
furthermore we went on tours through Europe with MADBALL / CROWN OF
THORNZ / RYKER’S and on tours through Germany with RAW POWER.
  • 2009 PA played a 4 week  Southeast Asia tour (Thailand,Malaysia, Indonesia, Philippines)
  • 
Of course we did numerous gigs with the whole range of “who is who” from within the hardcore scene: 
SUICIDAL TENDENCIES, HATEBREED, AGNOSTIC FRONT,  SICK OF IT ALL,  SHEER TERROR, 25 TA LIFE, MERAUDER, 
SKARHEAD, DOG EAT DOG, BIOHAZARD, NO USE FOR A NAME, BEOWÜLF, LEEWAY, PROPAIN, 
SNAPCASE, IGNITE, GANG GREEN etc..
  • we are on stage with a stable line-up: Mike (voc), Sven (g), Botte (g) and 
Mario (bg). Solely the drummer position has been vacant, so the last one to 
join us was Robert (Self Conquest) in 2009.
