New York hardcore legends Agnostic Front are less than three weeks away from releasing their latest album "My Life, My Way" in North America. Frontman Roger Miret recently took some time to reflect on the upcoming release and outlined each song track by track. Today will be the first installment of this series as Roger speaks about the first four songs on the album. Roger's thoughts on the tracks can be read below.
1. City Streets - This song is about growing up in the streets of NYC back in the day. It tells the story of how hard times as a kid made me a better person today. Learning from my mistakes and changing the negative times into a positive. Giving back to my mentor, the streets of New York City!
2. More Than A Memory - A song written in the memory of Mike's mom. How she influenced him to always follow his heart no matter what. She will never be forgotten!
3. Us Against The World - Talks about fighting against oppression, and against the people that stand in our way to live the way we wanna live. Stand up for your rights!
4. My Life My Way - Speaks about how I always did things on my own terms. Learning the hard way and always staying true to myself and this movement I adore staying genuine to what I believed in. So I will do it my way!

Front man Roger Miret commented on the song:
"In today's society, everyone is so busy behind their computer screens. People are spreading ignorance, hate, and just stupid shit behind their Internet walls. We speak about the youth getting sucked into this way of life and not dealing with real life situations the way we did as kids. I had just finished reading some coward flexing his megabytes on his MAC notebook and just hit me how non-confrontational some of these worms can be... basically, harden the fuck up! I do realize that these cyber attacks will never go away just like the song says I won't either and that's life!"

For many people, when they think of hardcore, the first place they think of is New York. And with good reason too, the N.Y.H.C. scene is perhaps one of the most well known in the world of heavy music, right up there with the Bay Area thrash scene. New York has produced dozens of hardcore bands that have gone on to become legends in the field and the now sadly defunct CBGBs club hosted more hardcore shows than a Red Light district in Amsterdam. One of the absolute top dogs from the New York scene, is a band that has been around longer than most and arguably played CBGBs more than anyone, Agnostic Front.
Agnostic Front was formed by guitarist Vinnie Stigma, formerly of The Eliminators in 1980 and went through a few singers before settling on Roger Miret, himself the former bassist of The Psychos. Before long, the band recruited bass player Adam Moochie and drummer Ray Barbieri (aka Raybeez) on drums and released their debut EP, "United Blood" in 1983. The EP was well received by fans and the group recorded their first full length, "Victim In Pain" soon after, releasing it in 1984. The album pushed them to the top of the New York hardcore scene and earned them a tour with Scotish hardcore act, The Exploited. More...
