Agnostic Front is celebrating its 35th anniversary in Kiev
They are not equal, they are respected and considered by the leaders of the genre hardcore representatives. Their sound - one of the worst in punk music - helped carve out hardcore as a musical and cultural destination, first in New York and then in the world. From the very beginning, Agnostic Front delivered a fast, powerful punk that featured Roger Miret's aggressive percussion and bass and chaotic vocals. This year, the legendary team is celebrating the 35th anniversary of their debut album, which, as it goes, paved the way for their entire catalog.
Date and Place: November 12, Atlas Club.
Agnostic Front has never been shy about expressions. Their songs have always been honest in their criticism of contemporary oppressors and their negative impact on society. In 1983, the band was created by guitarist Winnie Stigma, releasing the breakthrough EP United Blood, which is now hunted by all collectors.
With the first record, Victim in Pain (1984), the band laid a solid foundation for hardcore as a genre; it was she who brought them into the front ranks of the hardcore New York party that centered around the CBGB at the time. When the long-awaited DVD, Live at CBGB, came out in 2006, Miret stated, "We've played more concerts in CBGB than any other band, and we've played more charity concerts for CBGB than any other band." At that time, many punk bands were trying to save the cult club from closing.
And now, 35 years later, the band is celebrating the anniversary of that iconic debut they have been thanking for their successful careers for decades and a loyal fan base around the world.
Roger Miret: “We can't wait for the start of the 35th anniversary of Victim In Pain! It's hard to believe that it's been so many years, and our fans around the world are just as passionate as ever. Our Hardcore Godfather movie, which is now available worldwide, has a strong cultural impact just like our Victim In Pain album once did. There will be so many cool events this year, including our visit to your country, to your city! See you at the mall! ”
See you on November 12 at Atlas!
