Take Offense

Based out of Chula Vista, CA, Take Offense is a crossover Thrash band that has been together for close to 15 years, an eternity for any group in that scene. “As cliché as this sounds, we truly love playing and are still passionate about it,” says lead guitarist Greg Cerwonka.

Take Offense have spent the past 15 years storming venues around the world, repping the Golden State on tours with Municipal Waste, Napalm Death, Sick Of It All, Madball, Agnostic Front, Turnstile and more. The band has toured the U.S., Mexico, and Canada, as well as embarking on multiple tours of Europe.

Since their 2005 debut, Take Offense have released a handful of EPs, with their debut full-length Tables Will Turn premiering in 2011. They followed up with United States of Mind in 2013.

Take Offense has signed a worldwide record deal with Pure Noise. “Keep An Eye Out” was released to stellar reviews in October 2019.
