Tuesday's here so its time for some more pit mayhem! This week sees a story taking place at the CBGB music club - which managed to make it on the U.S. register of national historic places.
Agnostic Front's Vinnie Stigma shared this story of tearing his head open and revealing his skull to the audience:
At CBGB's 1982 Agnostic Front Death Before Dishonor, I was moshing around and going off to Death Before Dishonor when I ran across the stage and leaped off Big Rob's shoulders. I cracked my head open, hitting it on the monitor speaker that was above the stage.
When I fell to the floor, got up and realized that I got scalped. The skin was hanging off and my skull was exposed. People were throwing up and running away from me. I remember Doug Holland from Kraut puking and I'm saying to my self, I can hardly feel it. I went to the hospital and they played with out me.
Agnostic Front's new album "The American Dream Died" is set for release on April 3rd (EU), April 6th (UK/FR), and April 7th (USA) via Nuclear Blast Records. Check out a video clip for a track off the album, titled "Police Violence," below. More...

Three unmastered songs from the effort are currently available to stream on the bands official MySpace page now.

Less than a year after breaking up, Colorado hardcore band Fight Like Hell has announced plans to reform, albeit in a limited fashion. Here's a statement from the group:
"First off I want to say thanks to everybody who has been hitting us up about playing again. I just wanted to fill in everybody on what's going on. As all of you know, FLH broke up in March so everybody could pursue other interests. I, myself have been playing in Death Before Dishonor since January. Jake moved to Florida and went on to play in Know The Score and Matt is playing in Folsom currently. Also Joey has been diving deeper in to competitive Juijitsu. This band did not break up on bad terms at all but we all felt we had to make steps forward in our lives and we took that opportunity. We discussed the possibility of us playing again when we had the time.
"Fortunately, that time came sooner than expected. Jake has moved back in to my house in Denver with my brother (FLH current bassist) and DBD is on a break. October 11th Folsom is playing at Rock and Roll Grille and we felt that it was a perfect time and venue to start playing again. Just so everybody knows we WILL NOT be touring. I know that sucks for a lot of you but it's just not possible for us. Joey and Joel have obligations at home that make it hard for them to get on the road and Matt and myself are both touring full time with our respective bands.
"With that being said, we WILL be writing and recording 5 new songs in December to be released on Double or Nothing Records and we will have new merch up @ www.doubleornothingrecords.com. FLH will continue to play shows regionally when friends come through town whenever we can including a show in late December that is TBD. So everybody come out to the show on the 11th and have a good time. This is for you Denver."
