{"key":"14288","name":"Dead Kennedys","bio":"Dead Kennedys are a hardcore punk\/punk rock band from San Francisco, California. During the 1980s the band gained a large underground following in the international punk music scene. Their music mixed the more experimental elements of English 1970s punk with the raw energy of the 1980s American hardcore punk scene. Dead Kennedys' songs mix the deliberately shocking lyrics of punk with a satirical and sarcastic left-wing commentary on social and political issues. Many of the band's songs criticize the religious right and the Ronald Reagan administration, along with many other personalities and ideas. Dead Kennedys formed in San Francisco in 1978 when vocalist Jello Biafra (Eric Reed Boucher) and bassist Klaus Flouride (Geoffrey Lyall) responded to a magazine ad placed by guitarist 'East Bay Ray' (Raymond Pepperell). The three joined with drummer '6025' (Carlos Cadona) as a drummer, but he was quickly replaced by 'Ted' (Bruce Slesinger) and formed one of the most successful hardcore punk bands of the 80s. Later the same year, '6025' was invited back as a second guitarist, but he quit the band again in 1979.The band played hard and fast punk that matched the raw energy of the West-coast scene with twists such as Ray's surf-guitar influences and Jello's nasal machine-gun vocals and political fervor conveyed through furious left-wing rants. Their first show was on July 19, 1978, at the Mabuhay Gardens in San Francisco, California.After this The Dead Kennedys played numerous shows at local venues afterwards. Due to the band's provocative name, they sometimes played under pseudonyms, including \"The Sharks\", \"The Creamsicles\" and \"The Pink Twinkies\". The name, despite popular belief, was not meant to insult the assassinated Kennedy brothers, but to quote Biafra, \"to bring attention to the end of the American Dream\".The band released their first single, \"California Uber Alles\" in 1979 and first album, Fresh Fruit for Rotting Vegetables in 1980 on Jello's own Alternative Tentacles record label. Fresh Fruit for Rotting Vegetables is considered a punk classic. The album reached #33 in the UK Albums Chart. In January of 1981, Ted announced that he wanted to leave to pursue a career in architecture and would help look for a replacement. He played his last concert in February. His replacement was D.H. Peligro (Darren Henley).In May, the band released the single \"Too Drunk to Fuck\". The song caused much controversy in the UK as BBC feared the single would reach the Top 30; this would require a mention of the song on Top of the Pops. However, this never came to be as the single peaked at #31. It is also likely that had \"Too Drunk to Fuck\" (retitled \"Too Drunk To\" by the BBC) hit the top 30, it would have been banned from playing, in the fashion of The Exploited.With Peligro's propulsive drums behind the band, 1981's EP In God We Trust, Inc. saw them moving toward full on hardcore\/thrash. In addition to the EP's controversial artwork depicting a gold Christ figure on a cross of dollar bills, the lyrics contained Biafra's most biting social and political commentary yet, and songs such as \"Moral Majority\", \"Nazi Punks Fuck Off\" and \"We've Got a Bigger Problem Now\" put the DKs on the map as the leaders of a social movement (which would not see fruition until \"alternative\" music gained mainstream acceptance a decade later with grunge).The band continued touring all over the United States, as well as Europe and Australia, and gained a large underground following. While they continued to play live shows during 1983 and '84, they took a break from releasing new records to concentrate on the Alternative Tentacles record label, which would become synonymous with D.I.Y. alternative culture, independent from and in contrast to the commercialized sterile cultural landscape the world had become since the \"cultural revolution\" of the '60s faded into the yuppie '80s. The Kennedys were beset by controversy with the 1985 release of their Frankenchrist album, which was packaged with an 'obscene' poster by Swiss artist H.R. Giger. The resulting trial ravaged the band financially and personally, and in February 1986 they broke up the band only to still record material and release the album Bedtime for Democracy in November. Protracted royalty battles between Jello and his ex-bandmates, which lasted up through the 1990's dashed any hope of a complete reunion.However, in 2001, Ray, Flouride and Peligro united with singer Brandon Cruz under the name DK Kennedys. After performing several concerts under this name, the name was changed back to the original Dead Kennedys. In 2003 Cruz was replaced by Jeff Penalty. Two live compilations have been released since the partial reunion: Mutiny on the Bay, notably featuring a version of \"Kill the Poor\" from their final show with Biafra in 1986, and Live at the Deaf Club, a recording of a 1976 performance prior to the release of Fresh Fruit for Rotting Vegetables, which features 6025 as second guitar and Ted as drummer. In October 2007 a best-of album entitled Milking the Sacred Cow was released.Jeff Penalty left the band in March 2008 on bad terms and was replaced by former Wynona Riders singer Skip. D.H. Peligro also left due to personal reasons and was replaced by Dave Schreff. On August 21, 2008, the band announced they would not tour in the foreseeable future due to the health issues of Flouride and Peligro. Flouride would continue performing locally and Ray and Skip have announced they will continue to release work under a new band name.","featuredImage":"http:\/\/assets.allamericanmusic.com\/images\/14288_h_0.jpg","feeRange":"please contact"}

They are known for being one of the early bands in the hardcore punk scene to sing about more personal and comical topics reflective of their own lives.They were formed in 1978 by guitarist Frank Navetta (RIP) , bassist Tony Lombardo and drummer Bill Stevenson. Shortly after forming they enlisted Milo Aukerman and made what started out a surf band into a full fledged punk unit. The Descendents diverged from their punk peers perhaps because of the Beach Boys influences and sang about topics that touched many young punks' lives like parents, food, girls and being rejected. This band separated due to Milo actually going to college (UCSD), like the title of their album. This and other constraints have made them famous for their long hiatuses, sometimes spanning a decade in length. The band is now spread out across the country and their future is somewhat uncertain. Lead singer Milo Aukerman currently resides in Newark, Delaware. He is a biochemist for the internationally known DuPont Chemical company, which is based out of Delaware. However, whenever the end of the Descendents seems to be approaching, Milo pops up again and the band releases a new record.They have released 6 full length albums: * Milo Goes to College (1982) * I Don't Want to Grow Up (1985) * Enjoy! (1986) * All (1987) * Everything Sucks (1996) * Cool To Be You (2004)","featuredImage":"http:\/\/assets.allamericanmusic.com\/images\/19854_h_0.jpg","feeRange":"please contact"}

{"key":"21843","name":"Bad Brains","bio":"Bad Brains are a United States hardcore punk band, originally formed in Washington DC in 1977. Though the band's members objected to the term \"hardcore\" to describe their music, they are considered pioneers of hardcore punk, and their debut album Bad Brains is considered by many to be one of the finest hardcore albums ever. Just as often as their sound is fast and frantic, the band often plays full-on dub and reggae.Originally formed as a jazz fusion ensemble, Bad Brains developed a very fast and intense punk rock sound, which was both musically complex and more extreme than most of their punk contemporaries. They were also an adept reggae band, in a sort of Jekyll-and-Hyde arrangement, while later recordings also featured elements of funk and heavy metal. Bad Brains were also notable as religious Rastafarians. Bad Brains have broken up and reformed several times over the years (most recently as the Soul Brains), sometimes with different singers and\/or drummers. Their existence has been in three periods: 1977\u20131984, 1986\u20131995, and 1997\u2013present. The group's classic line-up was singer H.R., guitarist Dr. Know, bass guitarist Darryl Jennifer, and drummer Earl Hudson.(SOMETHING MISSING HERE?)This might have been the end of the Bad Brains\u2014if it were not for Ric Ocasek. Ocasek, frontman of New Wave band The Cars, had seen the group play in Boston, and asked them to record an album. Having arrived back from tour with no place to live and no equipment, the Bad Brains took him up on his offer. The result was Rock for Light, released on the large independent label PVC\/Jem (who also released The Cure's first album).In the early '90s, H.R. embarked upon a solo reggae career. During his initial departure, he was replaced along with drummer Hudson by new singer Israel Joseph I and their sound became more in the vein of alternative rock.Marking a return to their trademark hardcore punk\/reggae sound, the original lineup of the Bad Brains released Build a Nation in June 2007, a new, critically acclaimed album with longtime fan Adam Yauch of the Beastie Boys handling the production. The Beastie Boys, were huge Bad Brains fans, and they intentionally selected a name with the initials B.B. because of this.Official Site: http:\/\/www.badbrains.comMyspace: http:\/\/myspace.com\/badbrains","featuredImage":"http:\/\/assets.allamericanmusic.com\/images\/21843_h_0.jpg","feeRange":"please contact"}

After signing with Eulogy Recordings, they re-released the EP under the name Reset on April 11, 2006 with vinyl released by Panic Records. Their first full length album, Mutiny was released on July 11, 2006.

The band parted on bad terms, with co-vocalist Jordan Brown issuing the following statement on AbsolutePunk.net:\"These were not sent as bragging rights. Please do not buy Eulogy records, do not buy Set Your Goals merch from Eulogy's e-store. John has made an untraceable amount of money off of SYG's music and will continue to do so. We have never seen a dime. I have always said from day one that i don't do any of this for money, and i do not. But it does not sit well with me the amount of money he has kept from us (and many other bands). I could care less about seeing any of that money for myself, but i would rather it be with somebody or another band who deserves it more than John Wylie does. We cannot regain control of our Mutiny cd; the reset songs we will get back in another 3 years. For now he continues to milk Set Your Goals for what he can.\"Following the previous statement, co-vocalist Matt Wilson hinted that their upcoming album may be self-released. However, in March 2009, the band announced their signing with Epitaph Records. Their second album, This Will Be the Death of Us, was released on July 21, 2009.http:\/\/www.myspace.com\/setyourgoals.","featuredImage":"http:\/\/assets.allamericanmusic.com\/images\/19843_h_0.jpg","feeRange":"please contact"}

{"key":"24186","name":"Refused","bio":"Refused is a Post-Hardcore band originating from Ume\u00e5, Sweden, formed in 1991. The band's final lineup comprised its founding members, vocalist Dennis Lyxz\u00e9n and drummer David Sandstr\u00f6m, as well as guitarists Kristofer Steen and Jon Br\u00e4nnstr\u00f6m. Their lyrics were often of a non-conformist and politically far-left revolutionary nature. The band released five EPs and three albums before initially splitting up in 1998. Kerrang! placed The Shape of Punk To Come at #13 on their 50 Most Important Albums Of All Time list. Several months of heavy touring and internal stress caused the band's dissolution, after their last show in the United States was dismantled by police. Following the band split, Lyxz\u00e9n went on to front the political garage rock band The (International) Noise Conspiracy.In March 2010, Epitaph Records put up the old Refused website online with the words \"coming soon.\" Rumors spread across the Internet about what the new website could indicate, including speculation of a reunion. Citing an anonymous source \"close to the situation,\" Punknews.org unofficially announced that the band would perform at European music festivals in 2010. Dennis Lyxz\u00e9n has denied claims of a Refused reformation as he and David Sandstr\u00f6m are busy with AC4. The new band website was later announced to be a promotional site for a reissue of Refused's final album, The Shape of Punk to Come. The reissue, released on June 8, 2010, is a three-disc set with an unreleased live album recorded in 1998 and the Refused Are Fucking Dead DVD documentary in addition to the full original album.On January 9, 2012, it was announced that Refused would be performing at the 2012 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Fesitval in Indio, California in April 2012. The reunion was confirmed via Dennis Lyxzen's Facebook page. Magnus Flagge, their original bassist\/cellist, has also rejoined the band. Later that day, it was announced that they would also be playing at Way Out West Festival in Gothenburg, Sweden. They also headlined the Groezrock festival in Belgium. On February 29, Refused played a secret show in Ume\u00e5, their first live performance since 1998. They also appeared for the first time on TV in America on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon on July 18, 2012. On August 23, 2012 Refused indicated by a Facebook post that their reunion was for 2012 only and not a continuation of their career. On August 24, 2012, it was announced that Refused would undertake a theatre tour of Australia for the first time ever in November. The after party for Refused's final show to date, on December 15, 2012 in Fabriken, Ume\u00e5, saw brief reunions from related Ume\u00e5 hardcore bands Abhinanda and Final Exit, as well as some rarely performed songs from Refused. Redd Kross also performed.On February 22, 2013, Refused were awarded \"The special prize for Swedish music exports\" by the Minister of Trade. Lyxz\u00e9n and Sandstr\u00f6m chose to criticize the current Government at the ceremony, instead thanking the efforts of popular education, in particular Workers' Educational Association (ABF) and youth centers (in Sweden associated with social democracy) while Jon Br\u00e4nnstr\u00f6m chose to not accept the prize on his behalf later stating he wished they \"(\u2026) had said no to the prize and instead held a press conference about why we had turned it down.\"On October 31, 2014, Jon Br\u00e4nnstr\u00f6m stated on the official Refused Facebook page that he had been fired from the band (the band would later state that he left the band in 2013), implying that Refused are still active and plan on performing again in the future. On November 25, 2014, the band announced that they will perform their first shows in three years at the Reading and Leeds Festivals, Groezrock and Amnesia Rockfest in the summer of 2015. Around the same time, rumors surfaced of a new album being recorded for release in 2015 after ...And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead's Autrey Fulbright II posted a photo on Instagram claiming that Lyxz\u00e9n had been in the studio recording vocals for the album; however this was quickly deleted.Refused have announced a North American tour, the Freedom 2015 USA Tour, starting with their headlining set at Punk Rock Bowling and Music Festival in Las Vegas on May 24. On this tour, the band will be playing smaller clubs with ~500 capacity.

{"key":"24999","name":"Propagandhi","bio":"Propagandhi is a punk band formed in Portage La Prairie, Manitoba, Canada in 1986 by Chris Hannah and Jord Samolesky. While their earlier work draws from the punk and skate punk tradition, recent Propagandhi records have moved towards a heavier, hardcore thrash-influenced sound.The band members are known for championing various political causes. They have taken an active stance against human rights violations, racism, homophobia, imperialism, fascism, capitalism and organized religion. The band supports vegan lifestyles, animal rights campaigns and feminism, and have described themselves as \"Gay Positive\".In 1986, Samolesky and Hannah recruited original bassist Scott Hopper via a \"Progressive Thrash Band, bassist wanted\" flyer they posted in a local record shop. Hopper was replaced around the turn of the decade by Mike Braumeister. This was the first lineup to perform live. After several demos and larger shows (including one with Fugazi) made a name for the band, Braumeister moved to Vancouver and a young musician with an inclination towards poetry named John K. Samson became the band's third bassist. It was this lineup of Hannah, Samolesky and Samson that would go on to put out the band's early albums and gain recognition outside of Canada.In 1992, Propagandhi played a show with NoFX. Impressed by their performance, Fat Mike signed them to his independent record label Fat Wreck Chords and asked them to come to L.A. to record their debut album. 'How To Clean Everything' was released in 1993, musically, the album owed a lot to 90s skate punk, but there were still glimpses of the band's 'Progressive Thrash' roots in some of the riffs.The band spent the next three years touring and enjoying the popularity provided by the explosion of punk rock in the mid-1990s. In 1996, they recorded and released their second album, on Fat Wreck Chords - \"Less Talk, More Rock\". The album title was a joke, as Propagandhi were (particularly at that point in their career) well known for going into lengthy rants during their live performances. The album was, if anything, more politically out-spoken than its predecessor, with song titles including; \"Apparently I'm a P.C. Fascist (Because I Care About Both Human and Non-Human Animals)\", \"Nailing Descartes To The Wall \/ (Liquid) Meat Is Still Murder,\" and \"\u2026 And We Thought That Nation States Were a Bad Idea.\" However, for all this, the album did see Propagandhi begin to find a sound more their own than on their debut - musically and lyrically - as well as seeing John K. Samson move from bassist\/backing vocalist to occasional singer\/songwriter (Samson would go on to re-work a handful of his songs from this period with The Weakerthans).In 1997, John K. Samson decided to quit the band and form The Weakerthans. Chris and Jord co-founded the record label G7 Welcoming Committee Records (G7 would later release the first Weakerthans' album). The label's co-operative economic structure is based upon that proposed in Robin Hahnel and Michael Albert's 'Parecon', and was initially started thanks to a $50,000 loan from Fat Mike.During this time, Propagandhi released a collection of demos, alternate takes, covers and live songs called 'Where Quantity Is Job #1.' A new bassist - Todd Kowalski of the bands I Spy and Swallowing Shit (who have also put out material on G7) - replaced Samson that year.After four years, Propagandhi released their third full-length album, 'Today's Empires, Tomorrow's Ashes'. The album marked a major departure from their previous works; the song titles and lyrics of 'Today's Empires' furthered the sphere of their political views and presented their ideas in a more coherent and, arguably, more mature way. Bolstered by the addition of Todd's aggressive song-writing (in contrast to Samson's earlier influence) and an increased density of guitar lines, this album was also the band's heaviest to date and had much more in common with hardcore thrash than with skate punk. The album included enhanced content, with videos and essays on topics such as COINTELPRO and the Black Panther Party, and US foreign policy.Propagandhi released their fourth studio LP on October 18, 2005. 'Potemkin City Limits' saw the band's songwriting style change again, with generally longer songs, alternating heavier\/softer parts and more polished vocals and structured music. Strangely, given his influence on their previous release, Todd's songwriting style in particular would embrace softer music and more cryptic lyrics. Like 'Today's Empires, Tomorrow's Ashes', the album has multimedia content, with a number of Adobe PDF files on topics such as Parecon and veganism.Chris Hannah adopted the pseudonym \"Glen Lambert\" for use during the release of Potemkin City Limits, causing confusion among some fans, reviewers, and commentators. In September 2005, G7 Welcoming Committee Records jokingly announced that Chris had left the band in 2003, and that the remaining members had found a replacement in Glen Lambert, formerly of the Portage Terriers. This claim was quickly revealed to be untrue through a multitude of sources.Without admitting to the joke, Propagandhi announced on August 14, 2006 that \"Glen Lambert\" had been dismissed and would be replaced by \"former\" member Chris Hannah. They also added guitarist David Guillas, making the band a four-piece for the first time. Guillas, nicknamed \"The Beaver\", is a former member of two Winnipeg-based rock outfits, Giant Sons and Rough Music.In 2007 the band released a DVD entitled 'Live from Occupied Territory', which features a recording of their set at The Zoo in Winnipeg on July 19, 2003. Proceeds of the DVD benefit the Grassy Narrows blockade and the Middle East Children Alliance. Included on the DVD are two full-length documentaries: 'Peace, Propaganda and the Promised Land', and 'As Long as the Rivers Flow'.On March 10, 2009 Propagandhi released 'Supporting Caste'. In a press release, the band had this to say about their latest album:\"Propagandhi are proud pleased delighted required to announce the release of their new album, Supporting Caste.Recorded at the band\u2019s own Illegal Combatant Studios and the world-renowned Blasting Room in Ft. Collins Colorado, Supporting Caste is the fifth full length release from Winnipeg\u2019s Propagandhi.Crafted in collaboration with Bill Stevenson (Black Flag, Descendents, Zeke, 7 Seconds), this 12 song collection of boundless power and depth is a 50 000 watt forward-thinking tip-of-the-hat to the giants \u2014 Voivod, Rush, SNFU, Sacrifice, Razor, Guilt Parade \u2013 that have gone before them.Legendary and unrepentant residents of humankind\u2019s ideological peanut-gallery, Propagandhi does not disappoint with Supporting Caste, launching crude rockets into the heart of the prevailing order with meditations that range in focus from the humane slaughter and consumption of non-vegans in an elaborate 18-course banquet (with wine pairings) to the apparent confusion of turning on the TV to watch a simple hockey game and having to wonder whether or not the Nazi\u2019s actually lost the war after all.Supporting Caste: 12 new laments, reveries and extrapolations from 4 visibly-aging prairie skids who still cannot believe that of all the gin joints in all the galaxies in all the universes, they had to be born on this one.\"Propagandhi are known for their slow-pace production, taking many years between one record and the next one, and their rare live shows, which take place in small venues and, generally, got the entrance fee fixed at an affordable price.","featuredImage":"http:\/\/assets.allamericanmusic.com\/images\/24999_h_0.jpg","feeRange":"please contact"}

The narrative highlights the hardships and internal conflicts faced by a working-class family living on the Jersey Shore during the post-WWII period.

Formed during 1986 in Queens, the band released their first self-titled EP on Revelation Records and began to accumulate a strong local following by playing famous clubs like CBGBs (\u2018A Month Of Sundays\u2019 actually pays tribute to these glorious days at this legendary venue). Soon after, the band released their first full-length record \u2018Blood Sweat And No Tears\u2019 on In-Effect Records. Often revolving around politics, social injustices and life on the streets of New York, the band wore their heart on their sleeve and made no apologies, often including threads of positivity. When their second album \u2018Just Look Around\u2019 was released in 1992, it was a benchmark for the band and the New York hardcore scene, and kicked off their globe-trotting expansion with tours in Europe, South America and Japan. They released their breakthrough album \u2018Scratch The Surface\u2019 in 1994 on Atlantic, followed by the seminal album \u2018Built To Last\u2019 in 1997. After releasing three albums on Fat Wreck Chords, as well as a live album and a collection of rarities, the band took on the challenge to push themselves further. \u2018Death To Tyrants\u2019 was the band\u2019s first cooperation with Century Media and was mixed by renowned metal producer Tue Madsen (The Haunted, Heaven Shall Burn, Dark Tranquillity,) adding a refreshingly heavy edge to the band\u2019s trademark NYHC sound. \u2018Death To Tyrants\u2019 was extremely well received by media and fans alike and followed up with three years of relentless touring.After debuting on Century Media Records in 2006 with the critically acclaimed 'Death To Tyrants' album and celebrating their 20th anniversary in the same year, SICK OF IT ALL certainly deserve being labelled a \u201cliving legend\u201d, and still prove that classic New York hardcore is alive and kicking! With a career spanning 20 years and hundreds of thousands of albums sold worldwide, the band\u2019s highly anticipated new album 'Based On A True Story' will add an exhilarating new chapter to the SICK OF IT ALL legend.Doubtlessly the band\u2019s hardest hitting effort to date, 'Based On A True Story' easily meets the high quality of its predecessor and offers tons of soon-to-be-classic hardcore hymns like 'Dominated', 'Long As She\u2019s Standing', 'The Divide' and 'Lowest Common Denominator. It features the most catchy and powerful material the band has ever written. It\u2019s astonishing to see the band still boiling with rage at a world gone wrong and successfully transforming this natural and honest aggressiveness into hardcore hits. Two decades of experience as skilful songwriters, endless touring, plus an undying hardcore spirit make SICK OF IT ALL anno 2010 sound stronger and more determined than ever. 'Based On A True Story' is undeniable proof that the quartet is simply unstoppable and unrivalled within the hardcore scene in terms of quality and sheer impact.The new album was also recorded with Tue Madsen, this time at Starstruck Studios in Copenhagen in Copenhagen, Denmark, resulting in a massive metallic heaviness which increases the punch and drive of the new opus. Craig Ahead (bass) comments: \u201cThe end result of our three and a half weeks in the studio is something that we are all very proud of. An album that is pure SICK OF IT ALL and will stand up against any of our previous work and I believe raises the bar to a new standard. I hope you enjoy our offerings. We look forward to its release so we can again stomp the world. See you on tour!\u201c To walk the talk, the band plays a European tour with Dropkick Murphys in January\/February 2010, followed by a UK run with AFI in April. More festival shows and touring activities are in the works.'Based On A True Story' is another sonic statement that SICK OF IT ALL are an institution of hardcore. Their longevity and conviction has kept the band\u2019s reputation untarnished and legendary. As Metal Hammer (UK) puts it: \u201cSICK OF IT ALL \u2013 despite their ever-increasing age and fierce competition \u2013 are still the finest spokesmen for hardcore\u2019s social conscience and values\u201d, and this new release will allow them to maintain this leading position for many years to comeMore information at www.myspace.com\/sickofitallny","featuredImage":"http:\/\/assets.allamericanmusic.com\/images\/24181_h_0.jpg","feeRange":"please contact"}

{"key":"24182","name":"Agnostic Front","bio":"Agnostic Front is a New York hardcore punk (NYHC) and crossover thrash band. Formed by Vinnie Stigma and Roger Miret in 1982, they soon added Ray Barbieri and Adam Moochie to form the original line-up. Their debut, United Blood EP, was released in 1983 on an independent label. It is widely regarded as pure hardcore punk and lyrically charged and has since become a collector's item.The follow-up was Victim in Pain (1984) and is regarded as a seminal New York hardcore release. Dave Jones replaced Ray Barbieri on drums. The album pushed the band to the forefront of New York's fledgling hardcore scene, which was centered around CBGB's, where they played with bands like Cro-Mags and Murphy's Law.1986's Cause for Alarm was a difficult album to record, due to constant line-up changes and personnel problems. Released on Combat Records, Cause for Alarm added thrash metal influences, creating a new genre known as 'crossover thrash'. Many of Agnostic Front's supporters considered the album a travesty and a sell-out, but it was hailed in other corners, and vastly expanded their audience.With yet another new lineup, the band soon released Liberty & Justice in 1987. The original NYHC scene had collapsed by this time, and the album featured stripped down punk with a lack of thrash influences, yet it contained many metal-style guitar solos. It was a failure compared to previous records. Sometime later, Miret was arrested on drug charges after releasing a live album, and spent his time in prison writing new songs while Stigma and the band toured Europe for the first time. The lyrics written by Miret formed most of 1992's One Voice, which featured members of Stigma's Madball, and Sick of It All. Not long after its release, the band decided to call it quits. Their last concert was at CBGB's in 1993; Last Warning, which was also released with United Blood EP on the end of the record. Vinnie Stigma apparently remarked that he hated Last Warning.Stigma and Miret reformed Agnostic Front in 1997, signing to Epitaph Records and recruiting Jim Colletti on drums and Rob Kabula on bass. Their latest venture was titled Something's Gotta Give, although Miret announced in the UK the original title would be Today, Tomorrow, Forever. In 1999, they followed up with Riot! Riot! Upstart which was also hailed by critics. Their comeback albums have sold well and been mostly acclaimed by music critics for their pure street punk\/Oi! sound. In 2001 they released the album Dead Yuppies. Songs from this album were rarely played live, as the band considered it more a product of Loved and Hated, Jim Colletti's side-project bands. In 2002, Miret fronted a new band, Roger Miret and the Disasters, looking for a sound akin to old school punk and Oi!.Agnostic Front came out in 2005 with the album Another Voice. The album was regarded mainly as a follow up to One Voice. It, however, did receive some criticism from fans and the press for apparently changing their music to fit the current wave of \"tough guy hardcore\" bands. Musically, the album bears resemblance to bands that were heavily influenced by Agnostic Front, such as Hatebreed. Miret's vocals on the album particularly seemed to turn off many less new school hardcore-oriented fans.On March 7th 2006, Agnostic Front released their long-awaited DVD Live at CBGB's. This follows the efforts of many bands to try and save CBGB's from shutting down.On November 6th, 2007, Agnostic Front released their ninth studio album, Warriors. This album marks a return to their late '80s sound of crossover thrash mixed with a continuation of the new school hardcore sound.Discography:United Blood (EP) 1983Victim in Pain 1984Cause for Alarm 1986Liberty and Justice for\u2026 1987Live at CBGB 1989One Voice 1992Last Warning 1993Raw Unleashed 1995Something's Gotta Give 1998Riot!

{"key":"24204","name":"Raised Fist","bio":"https:\/\/www.facebook.com\/RaisedFistOfficialRaised Fist is a Swedish hardcore band formed in 1993, Lule\u00e5, Sweden. The name \"Raised Fist\" came as an idea from the Rage Against the Machine song \"Know Your Enemy\", where part of the lyrics are as follows: \"Born with an insight and a raised fist\u2026\"With influences rooted firmly among bands as Gorilla Biscuits,Youth Of Today and Wide Awake the band started out as firm believers in the old school style. They blasted out their first two excellent releases, the CD EP \"You're Not Like Me\", and the much acclaimed MCD \"Stronger Than Ever\". On these recordings the band and mad man, growling Alexander Rajkovic is up for an intense hardcore adventure that has the same spirit and energy stuff as the early Revelation and Boston releases conveys.Late 1998 Raised Fist came back with their long awaited debut album \"Fuel\". A record that meets the old style coupled with a more heavy sometimes almost MACHINE HEAD-like metal assault. KERRANG gave \"Fuel\" four K´s (K K K K) and wrote \"\u2026It is a melody-free album of pogo-inducing open chords and Sick Of It All-style Noise. It's not just posturing either, these four men sound as if they really mean it and there isn't a track here that lets up for a second\"\u2026\" Raised Fist sound like they're spoiling for a ruck, and after hearing \"Fuel\" you'll be too\". (James Cooper).The second album \"Ignoring The Guidelines\" (recorded by Daniel Bergstand who has produced MACHINE HEAD and MESHUGGAH among others) was released by Burning Heart Records on May the 26th 2000 and is certainly another reason to believe. Here, RAISED FIST takes their intense hardcore even further. The metal is there, but less prominent. The punk edge, the stomping build-ups and deadly aggressive styled vocals makes \"Ignoring The Guidelines\" to another great release from this hardcore cult maniacs.In the fall of 2002, RAISED FIST is releasing their third album, entitled \"Dedication\". Once again, produced by Daniel Bergstrand. We are given another doe of the extreme and powerful hardcore we have come to know from this band. These guys and their brutal attack are again all over the place, showing total commitment and sincerity to the music they love.Crank it up real high, and you know why this band is and will continue to be one of the most talked about hardcore-acts in the world.\"Dedication\" is an illustration of desperation, in words and music.The band has become more successful over the years, with its aggressive music and vocals. Every new album seemed to have an even harder edge than its predecessor. As an example of their rise, the band played at the large Scandinavian Roskilde Festival in 2004.Burning Heart Records, the band's current record label, houses many other Swedish punk and hardcore bands. The band currently consists of five members.Currently lineup:Marco - GuitarDaniel - GuitarJosse - BassAlle - VocalsMatte - DrumsDiscography:2015 - From The North2009 - Veil Of Ignorance2006 - Sound of the Republic2002 - Dedication2001 - Watch Your Step2000 - Ignoring The Guidelines1998 - Fuel1996 - Stronger Than Ever (EP)1994 - You're Not Like Me (EP)https:\/\/www.facebook.com\/RaisedFistOfficialhttps:\/\/twitter.com\/raisedfisthttp:\/\/en.wikipedia.org\/wiki\/Raised_Fisthttp:\/\/www.raisedfist.com\/","featuredImage":"http:\/\/assets.allamericanmusic.com\/images\/24204_h_0.jpg","feeRange":"please contact"}

{"key":"24187","name":"Madball","bio":"The NYHC band Madball originated back in the late 1980s, as a side project of legendary NYHC outfit Agnostic Front (Where none other than AF's frontman Roger Miret would let his little brother Freddy \"Madball\" Cricien take the microphone on lead vocals during AF shows). After releasing the \"Ball of Destruction\" single in 1989, the buzz around the streets was the question of when was Madball going to play next gave birth to an early version of the band playing live on other bills than just AF shows. It wasn't until 1991 when Madball truly hit their stride, when the lineup of Freddy Cricien on vocals, guitarists Matt Henderson and Vinnie Stigma, drummer Will Shepler, and bassist Hoya Roc of Dmize joined forces. The new version of the band (not just all AF members) quickly recorded and released an EP called Droppin' Many Suckas in 1992, which eventually led to the band signing with Roadrunner in 1994. By releasing a pair of straight-ahead hardcore full-lengths (1994's Set It Off and 1996's Demonstrating My Style) and touring steadily, the band built a sizeable fan base outside their hometown. Consisting of Cricien, Henderson, Hoya, and new drummer John Lafatta, the band recorded Look My Way, which was released in the spring of 1998. Hold It Down followed two years later. For the past three years Madball has come out with a CD evey year Best of Madball in 2003, N.Y.H.C. EP in 2004, in , & what many consider their finest album yet, Legacy in 2005.

{"key":"147302","name":"As Friends Rust","bio":"CreationIn 1996, Jeronimo, Henry Olmino and Matt Crum - who were playing together under the moniker \"Wayside\" - recruited Damien Moyal, who had fronted Culture, Morning Again and Shai Hulud - and was also doing Bird of Ill Omen and Culture at the time - to step in on vocals. The sound was a distinct amalgam of Samiam, Split Lip and Gorilla Biscuits. Much screamier than the following efforts, the band wrote quickly and passionately, and in no time was playing, kicking ass and taking numbers across Miami. Actually, the band's first show was a Pixies tribute, where they covered \"Hey\" from the album 'Doolittle' and \"The Sad Punk\" off of 'Trompe Le Monde.' The band stepped into the studio to record the first of several efforts with acclaimed producer James Paul Wisner, and made off with a pretty impressive 6-song session. Four of these would later be released, while the other two remain unattainable. The band sent out demo cassettes (remember those?) to a plethora of labels, all of whom - including Doghouse Records (who later signed AFR) and Equal Vision Records (who released the band's finale) - turned them down. The band eventually split up, as Damien planned his move to Gainesville to pursue Culture, and the remaining members began to lay the foundation for Rocking Horse Winner.ReincarnationBy autumn of 1997, Damien was settling into Gainesville to begin his new life. While things in Culture were going well, he craved the speed and fun of a less heavy, dogmatic outfit. It just so happened that Steve Looker, guitarist for Culture, was a huge fan of AFR's ignored demo, and suggested that they put together a new line-up of the band, provided the original members were cool with it. They were, and the search for a new line-up began. Ironically, Steve never ended up playing with the band, as he left Gainesville to play in Morning Again. In early 1998, the team was assembled. Timothy Kirkpatrick, who had recently joined Culture on drums, assumed the same duties in the new AFR. Kaleb Stewart, who nobody in the band really knew, but had mentioned to Damien once \"Hey, if you ever need a bass player for anything\u2026\" stepped in on bass. The two guitarists at this point were Gordon Tarpley (also of Culture) and Joseph Simmons, who had played in Bird of Ill Omen with Damien, and had recently parted ways with Morning Again and moved to Gainesville to join Culture, in a strange \"trade\" for Steve Looker. Anyhow, this band quickly wrote a song - yes, just one - and hopped into the studio with Gainesville's famous Rob MacGregor. The song was \"Home is Where the Heart Aches\" and was added to 4 of the 6 songs from the original line-up's recording, and released on Good Life Recordings as \"The Fists of Time\" EP. Gordon left, and was replaced by Peter Bartsocas, who was an old friend of Damien and Joe, and had also played in BOIO with them back in Miami. The band learned those older tunes, wrote a couple more new ones, and immediately began to tour. Discount took AFR out on the road with them in the summer of 1998, covering the east coast and midwest, twice over. As AFR had no van, Jim Reed (known admirably as \"Diggler\") took them in his Astro van. At the end of the summer, Peter left the band and was replaced by James Glayat (who had played with Tim in Roosevelt, way back in the day) and a new EP was recorded, co-released by Good Life Recordings and Doghouse Records. This EP was intended to be self-titled, but was mistakenly referred to as the \"God Hour\" EP by Good Life in all of their marketing materials. By autumn of 1998, Europe had already caught on to the enigma that would become As Friends Rust, and the band made plans to tour there in the winter. They recorded one more song - \"The First Song on the Tape You Make Her\" - for a split with Discount, whom they brought along to Europe, to return the favor. The tour was a success. As the new EP's were just getting into fans' hands, the new songs proved to be bigger and catchier than the old, and the crowd response was deafening. This member roster would remain intact for several more years of touring, but unfortunately would record nothing else. Being poor, drinking and fighting ended up being what the band chose to do rather than actually writing songs or recording, so they toured virtually the same set for about three years. It never seemed to bother fans, though. Nonetheless, this era of the band would go down as the 'real' AFR, in terms of passion, performance and plain old fun. Cut to late summer of 2000. Following three years of relentless touring in the US and abroad (mostly abroad, actually), the band lost 3 key members in one fell swoop. Kaleb, Tim and James split, leaving only Joe and Damien to decide whether or not the pieces should be picked up, or the band should be laid to rest.ResuscitationAt the end of 2000, with a point to prove, Joe and Damien brought in new members. Chris 'Floyd' Beckham (who had played bass in Culture a couple of years earlier) stepped in on guitar. Little Alex, an old friend of Floyd's from Ohio came in on drums, and Guy (of Army of Ponch fame) played bass. Determined to release a full-length LP, which had not yet happened for the band, the new version of AFR began writing. And write they did. Demo versions of two songs (\"Morningleaver\" and \"This is Me Hating You\") were recorded at Rob MacGregor's studio for a limited edition Doghouse Fan Series 7\". Soon after, Tom Rankine (another former Bird of Ill Omen member) joined in on bass, and Zach Swain (previously of Orlando's Carlisle) took over on drums. Within a few months, an album's worth of material had been amassed, and the band - still signed to Doghouse Records - headed into the studio with James Paul Wisner to record its first and only LP \"Won.\" Recorded in summer of 2001 and released in early fall, the band began touring the album diligently, and by autumn was in Europe (with friends Strike Anywhere) showing off its new material, members and sound. The album was widely acclaimed, and the band was attracting the attention of a more mainstream audience and press. During this tour, a sold-out show at London's Camden Underworld was filmed and later released as a DVD on Punkervision.TerminationUpon returning to the States, AFR started writing its next work, to be released as an EP for Equal Vision Records, who had proposed doing a one-off several years earlier. The band entered the studio - once again, with James Paul Wisner - in February 2002 to record what would be its final release, \"A Young Trophy Band in the Parlance of Our Times.\" Tension was high within the band, as personalities and musical directions clashed. This final EP ended up being the band's most praised release. One week later, Damien - the only remaining founding member - quit the band. They continued under the name As Friends Rust for a few months, but eventually gave it up to pursue other endeavors.Damien has gone on to do a pseudo-solo project called Damien DoneTim continued on to Moments in GraceKaleb went on to do Grey Goose, and a solo project, Bread RiotKaleb and Damien dabble in Goodnight at the End of the TunnelMatt plays various instruments in Feathers as well as ROMTom and Joe morphed AFR into Salem, which has since disbanded.Tom and some of the Salem guys are now playing in CurrentsFloyd now plays in J.
