D.R.I. (abbreviation for Dirty Rotten Imbeciles) is a hardcore punk band that formed in Houston, Texas in 1982. As of 2015, the band comprises two of its founding members, vocalist Kurt Brecht and guitarist Spike Cassidy, as well as drummer Walter "Monsta" Ryan and bassist Harald Oimoen. 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 Accused or Corrosion Of Conformity, with both hardcore punk bands having a strong influence on modern thrash, particularly Scott Ian and his band Anthrax. D.R.I. has released seven original studio albums, the last of which was released in 1995. Since then, the band has continued touring and intermittently going on hiatus. For years, there has been talk of an eighth D.R.I. album, which has yet to materialize. However, they released an EP with new material, But Wait...There's More!, on June 10, 2016
