Stick To Your Guns is one of the few modern hardcore bands carrying on a tradition and style heralded by the groundbreaking bands of the early 2000s but still evolving and helping define an ever-growing genre. Drawing comparisons to the metal-driven sounds of Comeback Kid while staying true to sing-along choruses reminiscent of early Rise Against, the members of Stick To Your Guns write songs meant to inspire and to infuriate, to challenge antiquated ideas and to usher in change.

During the band’s stretch on the 2013 Vans Warped Tour, peta2 sat down with vocalist Jesse Barnett to discuss the evolution of his vegan diet, his obligation to educate others, and why meat is for pussies.

“The fact that PETA is hated—to me that’s because you guys
are doing something right.”

New ideas are often met with resistance, especially if they challenge culturally accepted traditions—like eating meat. Don’t let “tradition” dictate your life!

  • Go vegan and save more than 100 animals every year from life in a cramped factory-farm cage and slaughter while still conscious.
  • Get fit! A vegan diet contains zero cholesterol and is proved to lower the risk of heart disease, diabetes, strokes, and obesity.
  • Need more protein? How about calcium? Try foods like soybeans, almonds, kale, chickpeas, broccoli, black beans, peanut butter, and soy milk—all healthy vegan options without the chemicals, antibiotics, pus, blood, poop, or suffering that’s found in meat and dairy products.
