New York hardcore pioneers AGNOSTIC FRONT are proud to announce their co-headlining tour with SICK OF IT ALL. The 19-date trek will begin on April 23rd in Boston and will make stops in Toronto, Chicago and Houston before concluding in Syracuse, NY on May 15th!
AGNOSTIC FRONT‘s Roger Miret comments, “Really excited to kick-off this tour with our NYHC peers SICK OF IT ALL!!! It’s been a long time coming and now is the time to bring some classic NYHC to the East Coast!!! See you in the pit”
AGNOSTIC FRONT will be touring in support of their latest full length album GET LOUD! which is compiled of 14 tracks that are nothing short of classic, home grown, New York Hardcore, but still includes some thrashy and punky variety. Last week, the band announced the return of The Eliminator with an exclusive bundle which will be released on March 13th via Nuclear Blast.

SICK OF IT ALL’s Armand Majidi comments, “Following-up on our sold out NYC borough tour together, we’re very excited to announce the 2020 AGNOSTIC FRONT/SICK OF IT ALL US East Coast tour. It’s always great to play with other classic New York bands, and AGNOSTIC FRONT almost wrote the American hardcore handbook, so this will be extra special. When two of the kings of New York come to your town, it’s gonna be clobberin’ time with the godfathers of hardcore, so be a part of it and help keep this movement buzzing into the new decade!”

Roger Miret comments, “So excited to see The Eliminator as an action figure!!! Even more excited about sharing the news of our secret recording of The Eliminator and Toxic Shock! We killed these bangers in the studio!!! So good!”
GET LOUD! was produced by Roger Miret while long time friend Paul Miner handled the recording, mixing and mastering of the record at Buzzbomb Studio in Orange, CA. For the artwork, the band returned to 1986’s Cause For Alarm artist Sean Taggart. It features the iconic CFA characters combined with a modern freshness.

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 exist on a level all their own. . . a level of their own creation.
