On The American Dream Died, Agnostic Front vocalist Roger Miret -even so many years into the classic NYHC band’s tenure- has delivered maybe his most vocally succinct set of lyrics on an album ever. The focus of the energized social blast’s recalls the band’s early lightning rod heyday as well as more recent forays into melodic, working class punk. And fret not…crossover fans need only listen to the rampage of “Test Of Time” to hear the metal influence that landed the band props from Kirk Hammett of Metallica on his Fear Festival this year.

It was great to talk to Miret about the record, on current events like “Police Violence”, real patriotism, welfare, Edward Snowden and how NY is the “Greatest city in the world, but it just don’t feel the same”. Plus MUCH more. “There’s no justice/it’s just us”!

90’s sludge n rollers Mearth are back on the scene

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Monday, December 8, 2014 at 7:15 AM (PST)

Mearth from New Paltz, NY never quite got their due the first time around (despite CMJ buzz). The band was kind of like the East Coast equivalent of The Jesus Lizard on hardcore punk and rock n roll steroids and were mainly active in the 90’s Hudson Valley, NY rock scene. I played many a show with these guys and my old bands Melancholy and Fuse alongside Shabutie (pre-Coheed & Cambria), NYC’s Dripping Goss (feat. Brian who played in Warzone), apocabilly band Pitchfork Militia and prog alternative band Three (later on Metal Blade). We had a fertile scene. Mearth played with bands like Agnostic Front and Fugazi their first time around.

Mearth was and remain the rowdiest of the 90’s Upstate, NY bunch in some ways, a caterwaul of chaos and flying beer who just couldn’t be stopped (except by things like having children and careers eventually). Now, the band are thankfully back (with Doug E. Beans of old school Murphy’s Law fame on drums). Their sound was ahead of the curve and would fit in well with a lot of stuff going on now from bands like Torche, Hark and Enabler’s ilk. Get used to reading about them cuz I am gonna keep plugging them hard as long as they remain re-activated.

Bassist Jim DeGrassi: When we got together, we were just a bunch of college kids who wanted to play some heavy music.  I don’t think we ever had any specific goals in mind regarding our sound, other than to play the kind of music we ourselves would want to listen to.  I don’t know whether or not we were ahead of the curve, but I do think our sound evolved into something unique that people seemed to enjoy.

New York hardcore legends Agnostic Front stream “That’s Life” on the cusp of releasing their latest album, “My Life, My Way.”

Frontman Roger Miret commented about “That’s Life”:

“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!”

“My Life, My Way” will be available on March 22 from Nuclear Blast.

Agnostic Front Cover Art & Track Listing Revealed

Posted by Christine on Monday, January 24, 2011 at 11:02 AM (PST)

Agnostic Front have revealed the track listing and cover art for their upcoming record entitled “My Life My Way”.

The concept was to capture the D.I.Y. ethic and crude themed artistry of the early punk flyers, with a nod to the era of crime and pulp comic themes of the early 50’s. Society deemed those materials as having no social redeeming values, and as a contributor to youth delinquency. Similarly outcasted were punk and hardcore in the early day for its aggressive, anti-authority message, and dangerous aura. “My Life My Way” is a throwback to the early days, and Agnostic Front has proven that what society deems unredeeming, has been, still is, and will continue to be relevant, states cover artist Todd Hubber.
