Starting July 18th, New York hardcore legends AGNOSTIC FRONT will be embarking on a headlining run rightfully dubbed the “East Coast Fury Tour.” Floored and eager as ever to get out and do some damage, lead singer Roger Miret had this to say about hitting the road again:
“I am very excited about this next leg of the AGNOSTIC FRONT tour! We start off with MUNICIPAL WASTE, SACTO HOODS, and PLEDGE OF RESISTANCE backing us up. I expect nothing but some of the sickest mosh pits ever witnessed! Joining us in about a week into the tour will be our brothers SUBZERO as allies in our Canadian invasion! All in all these 3 weeks are guaranteed to be some great times and memories. Pure hardcore fury at it's best!”
AGNOSTIC FRONT will enter the studio in June 20 to start recording their new CD, entitled "Warriors". Producing the effort will be MADBALL/HAZEN STREET frontman Freddy Cricien, who also happens to be AF vocalist Roger Miret's younger brother. The engineering duties will be handled by Zeuss from Planet Z in Hadley, Massachusetts. Roger Miret commented:
“As most of you already know, Freddy is my little brother and the frontman for the NYHC fury MADBALL! The collaboration between us is sure to make an impact world wide!”
"Warriors" will contain 15 New York hardcore "anthems" and will be released this fall via Nuclear Blast Records.

Eulogy/Hand of Hope Records have released a statement concerning the death and injuries which occured recently at the Street Brutality Show in Tuscon, AZ.
"All of us at Eulogy/Hand Of Hope would like to send out our condolences to the family and friends of the individual that was killed and anyone else that was injured at the Street Brutality show at Scrappys in Tucson, AZ last night. We hate to see any violence happen at hardcore shows but something of this magnitude is even sadder. We don't have all the fact as to what happened and I'm not sure if any one will every really know what exactly happened. When we know more we will let you know so please don't believe everything you read on message boards. The tour will continue as scheduled tonight in Las Vegas."
One man was shot to death and several others injured after a fight broke out during a show on The Street Brutality Tour featuring Shattered Realm, Donnybrook and Hoods in Tucson, Arizona last week.
One man was shot to death and several others injured (one individual was hit in the head with a hammer) after a fight broke out during a show on The Street Brutality Tour featuring Shattered Realm, Donnybrook and Hoods in Tucson, Arizona last night. The incident occured at Skrappy's, which bills itself as an alcohol- and drug-free club for people under 21. Police said they have had few calls for problems there.
The man fatally shot at a music club last night as Ray Darrin Pierson, 27, of Mesa. Pierson was in Tucson to see Shattered Realm. He was shot outside the club after a fight involving at least 20 people inside the venue, said Sgt. Ramon Batista, a Tucson Police Department spokesman. Pierson died at a hospital. Several other people were injured according to Batista, but he declined to discuss details.
Homicide detectives are trying to interview everyone who was at the Shattered Realm show - up to 200 people. Detectives found a handgun outside the club, but won't say who was carrying it. No one has been arrested so far. Police are asking anyone who was at the show and anyone who may have information about the fight and shooting to call 911 or 88-CRIME, the anonymous tip line of the Pima County Attorney's Office.
Several emails to Lambgoat.com owners suggest that the fight was between local hardcore kids and FSU members.
Skrappy's doors were locked this morning, and no one appeared to be inside.
