Seminal New York hardcore pioneers Agnostic Front are very pleased to announce that they will be playing two UK dates this October alongside Lars Frederiksen’s San Francisco street punk outfit The Old Firm Casuals and Florida hardcore mob Coldside.

Front man Roger Miret said of the UK show announcement;
‘We are very excited to hit the UK with a couple of dates celebrating our newest release ‘The American Dream Died’! The support we’ve received over time from the UK has always been amazing. This time we can all expect to sing some of the new chaotic rowdy songs as well as the classics! We will be bringing our good friends The Old Firm Casuals and Coldside! See you in the pit!!!!’

Agnostic Front’s latest album ‘The American Dream Died’ was released in April this year globally via Nuclear Blast. It was produced by Madball singer Freddy Cricien and engineered, mixed and mastered by Paul Miner (H2O, Terror). It features guest appearances from Cricien, Toby Morse (H2O) and Lou Koller (Sick Of It All) with legendary Agnostic Front/Madball guitarist Matt Henderson solely laying his guitar magic on the song 'A Wise Man'.

Being known as one of the founding bands of what is known as hardcore today, Agnostic Front have always levelled criticism against modern oppressors and their corrupting influence on society. 
What started out as a foursome initiated by guitarist Vinnie Stigma in 1983 with the ground-breaking EP ‘United Blood’ soon gained them the reputation as one of the fastest, meanest and most aggressive hardcore bands, not only in New York but the whole east coast. Influenced by the spirit of punk, Agnostic Front developed their unique sound dominated by catchy tunes, thunderous drums and the buck-wild shouting of Roger Miret. Due to their undisputable authenticity Agnostic Front were able to gain a loyal community of fans who stuck by them through thick and thin. Though the band decided to separate in 1993 after the release of the live album ‘Last Warning’ with Stigma concentrating on infamous hardcore combo Madball (which he had built up in 1988), Stigmaand Miret got together again in 1998 after they had met at a Madball concert. Actually planning to record a single, they ended up making a full album – ‘Something’s Gotta Give’ which marked the official reunion of the band after a five year break.
