Hard to believe it was exactly 30 years ago New York City’s Agnostic Front released their seminal hardcore punk debut United Blood on their own AF Records label. Followed up with 1984’s Victim In Pain full-length, AG have played an integral part in NYC’s contributions to East Coast hardcore punk and its ongoing evolution. And what better way to celebrate 30 years then a fresh batch of East Coast shows. BTS Photographer, and resident hardcore expert Anne Spina caught up with band as they made a tear through Mojo 13 in Wilmington, DE along with Boston heavyweights Death Before Dishonor and regional talents Rock Bottom, Sicker Than Most, Parallels, and Lifeless.
Agnostic Front continue to support their latest original full-length, 2011’s My Life, My Way on Nuclear Blast Records. Rock Bottom are celebrating a fresh release lease on Harvcore Records and riding high from a recent performance at the premiere East Coast hardcore festival, This Is Hardcore.
Without further ado..
