Burn is a hardcore band formed in 1989. After releasing four EPs across three decades, Burn released its first full-length album Do or Die through Deathwish Inc. in 2017.


Burn released its first recording, self-titled EP on Revelation Records in 1990.[1] In 1992, the band separated, with vocalist Chaka Malik forming Orange 9mm,[2] guitarist Gavin Van Vlack participating in Pry, Die 116, and The Big Collapse, and drummer Alan Cage in Quicksand.[3] The band never officially disbanded, and after a stint of live performances, Burn was restarted with the addition of guitarist Vic DiCara (from 108 and Inside Out)[4][5] and bassist Manny Carrero (from Glassjaw). In late 2001, Burn released a new EP on Equal Vision Records, Cleanse. In 2002, the band released a previously unreleased recording from 1992 on Revelation Records entitled, Last Great Sea,[6][7] due to fans seeking out music which had been circulating among fans from a demo.

In April 2016 the band announced their fourth release, From the Ashes.[8] With founding members Malik and Van Vlack, in addition to new members Tyler Krupsky and Abbas Muhammad, Burn released its first full-length album titled Do or Die on September 8, 2017 through Deathwish Inc. The album was produced by Kurt Ballou and mastered by Howie Weinberg.[9][10]
