Legendary NYHC pioneers AGNOSTIC FRONT have been confirmed to play the 2020 installment of the renowned Persistence Tour alongside fellow genre veterans GORILLA BISCUITS. Check out the dates below and stay tuned for more announcements!
The band will also tour the UK and Ireland in November in support of the 35th anniversary of debut album »Victim In Pain«.
In other news, in February the much talked about and acclaimed documentary about the band, »The Godfathers Of Hardcore«, made its premiere in Germany.
Roger Miret and Vinnie Stigma are lynchpins of New York Hardcore (NYHC), and their band AGNOSTIC FRONT played a key role in defining, shaping and establishing the sound and cultural code of conduct for the still-thriving movement. Unlike the dozens of bands that have come and gone, leaving their indelible footprint along the way, AGNOSTIC FRONT are still going strong, 11 studio albums into their 30-plus year career.
In a landscape of increasing apathy and complacency, the messages AGNOSTIC FRONT presents are as relevant today as they were in the ‘80s when the band members were impoverished, scrappy and ambitious, often fighting for their very survival as well as the perseverance of their volatile but highly inspirational band.
Roger and Vinnie remain the very embodiment of hardcore, representing endurance, perseverance, brotherhood, strength against oppression and the will to keep going, obstacles be damned. AGNOSTIC FRONT exist on a level all their own. . . a level of their own creation.
AGNOSTIC FRONT’s latest album, »The American Dream Died«, was released a little over 4 years ago, in April 2015, via Nuclear Blast Records.
