2017 makes the premiere of the highly acclaimed documentary about the band, The Godfathers Of Hardcore. This past fall saw the release of the documentary on Showtime.
Roger Miret and Vinnie Stigma are lynchpins of New York Hardcore (NYHC), and their band AGNOSTIC FRONT played a key role in defining, shaping and establishing the sound and cultural code of conduct for the still-thriving movement. Unlike the dozens of bands that have come and gone, leaving their indelible footprint along the way, AGNOSTIC FRONT is still going strong, 11 studio albums into their 30-plus year career.
In a landscape of increasing apathy and complacency, the messages AGNOSTIC FRONT presents are as relevant today as they were in the ‘80s when the band members were impoverished, scrappy and ambitious, often fighting for their very survival as well as the perseverance of their volatile but highly inspirational band.
Roger and Vinnie remain the very embodiment of hardcore, representing endurance, perseverance, brotherhood, strength against oppression and the will to keep going, obstacles be damned. AGNOSTIC FRONT exists on a level all their own. . . a level of their own creation.
AGNOSTIC FRONT‘s latest album, The American Dream Died, was released a little over 4 years ago, in April 2015, via Nuclear Blast Records.
The band intends to enter the studio this summer to record their 12th studio album. Stay tuned for more details soon!
