Artificial Peace were a hardcore band from the Washington, DC suburbs of Bethesda, MD. They were founded by members of Assault & Battery and Red C in 1981 and only lasted one year. During their time together, they released a split 7" with Exiled on Fountain Of Youth Records and were featured on the seminal Flex Your Head compilation released by Dischord in 1982. Members went on to form Marginal Man and play in Government Issue. This original Artificial Peace flyer, in excellent condition with a small tear and some pinholes, is from a show the band played on June 25 at the Wilson Center with The G.I.'s, Black Market Baby, Deadline, The Faith, and Gang Green.
