AGNOSTIC FRONT European tour dates

Being known as one of the founding bands of what is known as hardcore today, Agnostic Front have always levelled criticism against modern oppressors and their corrupting influence on society. What started out as a foursome initiated by guitarist Vinnie Stigma in 1983 with the ground-breaking EP ‘United Blood’ soon gained them the reputation as one of the fastest, meanest and most aggressive hardcore bands, not only in New York but the whole east coast. Influenced by the spirit of punk, Agnostic Front developed their unique sound dominated by catchy tunes, thunderous drums and the buck-wild shouting of Roger Miret. Due to their undisputable authenticity Agnostic Front were able to gain a loyal community of fans who stuck by them through thick and thin. Though the band decided to separate in 1993 after the release of the live album ‘Last Warning’ with Stigma concentrating on infamous hardcore combo Madball (which he had built up in 1988), Stigma and Miret got together again in 1998 after they had met at a Madball concert. Actually planning to record a single, they ended up making a full album – ‘Something’s Gotta Give’ which marked the official reunion of the band after a five year break.

American fans will have a great chance to watch them live on April 8th in Richmond, VA at the 11th Annual United Blood Fest! The band will be doing 3 more shows in April. GO HERE to see the details.
