Agnostic Front Kickstarting New Documentary

Roger Miret and Vinnie Stigma are lynchpins of New York hardcore and their band Agnostic Front played a key role in defining, shaping, and establishing the cultural code of conduct for the still-thriving movement.

Film and music video director Ian McFarland is crafting an intimate portrait of these two men, dubbed "The Godfathers of Hardcore."

Miret and Stigma have remained close friends through great adversity that often threatened their very existence. Today, Roger and Vinnie are primed and reaching into 50's and 60's, balancing jobs and families, in addition to an upcoming touring schedule that will take them all over the world.

"The Godfathers of Hardcore" will serve as an up-close-and-personal look into the lives of these different yet inseparable musical icons, and in the process will illustrate the tenacity, optimism, and enthusiasm with which they both approach their band to this day. The movie is already in the midst of production and features intimate footage captured by McFarland over the past several years, but to do the story the greatest justice possible, director Ian McFarland is reaching out to the band’s diehard fans, offering them a chance to join in supporting the film via a new Kickstarter campaign here.

The Kickstarter campaign will take place over the course of the next few weeks (ending on May 17th) and features unique incentives such as an ESP Viper-100FM STBLK Guitar with backplate signed by Agnostic Front, custom Vinnie Stigma ringtones, a limited edition Agnostic Front skate deck, a personal Lower East Side tour with Vinnie Stigma, and even a "Kickstarter Executive Producer" credit on the film. The goal is to raise $15,000, and afterwards, some amazing stretch goals will be added. More...

Pit Stories: Scalped At CBGB

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...

Agnostic Front Issues Track-By-Track Break Down

The New York hardcore pioneers from Agnostic Front have released a full track-by-track commentary for every song on upcoming album "The American Dream Died." Find the piece written by the band's iconic frontman, Roger Miret, below.

The band is also announcing a collaboration of Madball guitarist Matt Henderson on the song "A Wise Man." Commented Miret: "Matt Henderson tracked all guitars for 'A Wise Man' being that song has a total 'One Voice' era feel! Our good friend Ricky Singh (Backtrack NYHC) is to credit for the songs existence! The band executed it with such a great feel and bringing in our brother and ex-AF veteran Matt Henderson to solely do the guitar tracks was just magical!"

Miret had this to say about each track on the release:

"The American Dream Died: It’s a harsh look at what’s going on today in our society. The intro that precedes this song says it all! It’s a reaction to everything happening around us right now. The higher ups are out of control!

"Police Violence: This is our reaction to what’s going on in our country regarding the unprovoked brutality of our citizens by those who we pay to 'protect and serve' us. If they are going to act like criminals, then they should be prosecuted as one! They have some kind of elite fraternity-like understanding that they protect each other with. Don't abuse your badge!

"Only In America: It's sad to learn that the people who serve in our military and risk their lives fighting in wars come home to the government not giving a shit about them, especially if those veterans were wounded mentally or physically. They gotta go through a lot of bullshit just to try and get a little help and support. You've gotta be blind if you don't see that, only in America. This is why I strongly believe the US Government should stop policing the world, and start caring for the issues right here in the USA!

"Test Of Time: Learning from the past is important, to help you move forward and not make the mistakes we did in our youth. Longevity is the key to success. We won't get left behind. More...

Agnostic Front Unveils New Album

The New York hardcore pioneers from Agnostic Front today announced the details for their upcoming eleventh album, "The American Dream Died." Commented singer Roger Miret:

"We chose this title because we want to open up people's eyes to what's going on in this country. We have a lot to say. Not everyone realizes that our government and the people who run this country are so corrupt, greedy and ruthless.

"We need to educate the ones we reach. We're losing our values. We address real issues from full blown corruption and scandals to unjust police abuse and brutality. Everything's we stood for as a country is going down the drain. But we still somewhat have our freedom of speech. We're expressing it all through this record while we can." More...

On the 10th, guests attending the Fear FestEvil VIP Party will enjoy a classic night of whodunnit mystery madness, dining alongside Kirk Hammett, touring the infamously eerie and atmospheric mansion, and trying to figure out who killed who.

Guests can expect twists, turns and clues from some very special horror royalty as they try to crack the mystery open.

On Saturday the 11th and 12th, Fear FestEvil friends heading to the RockBar Theater can expect to see some of the finest pieces in any modern horror collection as Kirk Von Hammett unveils more of The Crypt publicly, before throwing down some heavy music courtesy of Meshuggah, High On Fire, Orchid, Blues Pills, Agnostic Front, and Asada Messiah. Sirius Radio's Liquid Metal host Jose Mangin and 107.7 the Bone's Nikki Blakk will preside over proceedings.

"It has always been my intention that Fear FestEvil events carry both the weird and the loud," says Kirk Hammett, "and what better way to achieve another extension of what we want to do than eat dinner in a haunted house while solving criminal acts before a weekend of super kick-ass music?!"
