Limited colored seven inch vinyl pressing. 2016 EP by punk/thrash legends D.R.I. But Wait... There's More is their first studio release in 15 years. D.R.I. (abbreviation for Dirty Rotten Imbeciles) formed in Houston, Texas in 1982. As of 2015, the band comprises two of its founding members, vocalist Kurt Brecht and guitarist Spike Cassidy. D.R.I. never gained a mainstream audience, but the integration of their hardcore punk roots with thrash metal influences was a stylistic catalyst for their contemporaries — most notably Suicidal Tendencies, Corrosion of Conformity, S.O.D. and Cryptic Slaughter — alongside whom they are considered to be one of the major pioneers of what would later be called crossover thrash along with the less successful and forgotten NJ punk-thrash band Adrenalin O.D., with both bands having a heavy influence on modern thrash, particularly Scott Ian and the band Anthrax.
