Bloodied, battered and unphased, Hoax at LPR in Feb 2011 (more by Sarah Coulter)
Hoax

Bad news first.... Poison Idea have in fact cancelled their appearance at Power Of The Riff East and all East Coast dates due to medical-related issues. Bummer.

Now the good... fortunately, we have added one of the best bands in punk/hardcore right now in their stead.... Hoax! The brutal Massachusetts crew will now join Pentagram, Negative Approach, Agnostic Front and many others on that Saturday, September 1 at Warsaw, the first of two days at the venue. Tickets are on sale for Sat and Sun (now with a free screened poster for the event), OR you can purchase the newly released set of two-day passes that come with a free Southern Lord vinyl pack that contains an LP or 7" and various other SL offerings.

Head below for some Hoax material, and video of this notoriously violent band live.

Explosive diarrhea is a frustrating mess.

Poison Idea was the only reason to go.

Nah. NA as well (although I'm the first to admit that I wish Brannon would try and scream at least some of his old lyrics rather than just growl the entire set).

Poison Idea without Pig Champion = bullshit. Hoax is the real deal

7:21- no, actually he/she doesn't. 1) Most of the bands playing on the bill aren't actually hardcore, so the post is ignorant on that level. 2) Two of the hardcore bands on the bill (A.F. and Negative Approach) have influenced more bands than just about any of the bands covered on this site. So, they turn 30,40, etc. they should stop doing what they are great at? Absolutely idiotic.

Can you email me with some pointers on how you made your site look this awesome, I would appreciate it.

I didn't realize how heavy Hoax was in terms of music. I hope whatever health problems they had have been resolved. We wouldn't wanttheir health problems to interfere in their performance. That would suck.
