Agnostic Front Announces 30 Years Of New York Hardcore Shows

Agnostic Front has announced a trio of commemorative shows to celebrate 30 years of NYHC. The hardcore punk pioneer will perform the classic Live At CBGB set in its entirety to pay homage to the passionate New York hardcore subculture that has stood the test of time – a movement Agnostic Front has led since the early 1980s.

June 23 - Frederick, MD @ Café 611
June 24 - Reading, PA @ Reverb
June 29 - Rochester, NY @ Dub Land Underground

To further celebrate this epic milestone, Agnostic Front has teamed up with ASG Guitar to launch the limited-edition “Stigma” series guitar, complete with Agnostic Front body artwork, NYHC fretboard inlay and more. Check it out online here.

Said ASG, “Agnostic Front shaped the music and the culture we love. They made it possible for little punks like us to pick up guitars and try to do something great. In our eyes, the ‘Stigma’ ASG is an instant classic and will be shredded proudly -- when it's not securely framed behind glass."

“I think the guitar is perfect for the working class musician endorsed by the ultimate working class band,” added vocalist, Roger Miret. “The boots symbol has always been of the same character. Hardcore has been our life. Our dedication to this movement has been our passion. Our boots stomped the wayinto NYHC history. We are hoping [the guitar] brings the unique ‘Stigma’ character to those that rock it! It will also make an awesome 30th anniversary time-piece to the true Agnostic Front collectors!"

Agnostic Front’s 10th studio album, "My Life My Way" (reviewed here) is out now on Nuclear Blast Records.
