Police Beat started in January of 2002 in New Bedford, Massachusetts with a goal in mind to play old school hardcore in the vein of the bands that paved the way before them. Songs so reminscent of old school Boston, it would make Springa proud! After original drummer Zack left the band in September 2002, Police Beat picked up Edson of the band XfilesX. Soon after they recorded 12 songs for their Think Fast! Records debut entitled "Time For Coffee". Sure enough, these songs have more energy than a cup of coffee, Police Beat rip through these songs of blistering hardcore.
