Ten Foot Pole in 2014 (photo by Denise Borders)

Punk veterans Ten Foot Pole, who formed as the hardcore band Scared Straight in the early '80s but changed their name before 1993's more melodic punk-styled Swill, have announced that they'll release their first new album since 2004's Subliminable Messages in 2015 via Cyber Tracks (El Hehe of NOFX's label). The band is currently fronted by original member Dennis Jagard like they've been since after their 1995 split with Satanic Surfers (when singer Scott Radinsky left to front Pulley and play major league baseball), and also features drummer Chris Dalley, bassist Chris Del Rio and guitarist Keith "DJ" Divel.

Ten Foot Pole have also announced a tour which hits NYC on July 25 at The Grand Victory with Boston's Burning Streets (who opened for Dead Kennedys and Reagan Youth at Irving Plaza last night [6/19]) and NYC's Sad and French. Tickets for that show are on sale now. All dates are listed below.

You can also catch Sad and French at that venue even sooner on July 9 for their record release show that also includes Arliss Nancy, Gameday Regulars, The Reveling and Spirit Houses (tickets). And even sooner than that, they'll open the previously discussed Captain, We're Sinking show at Union Hall.

Sloppy Seconds

Burning Streets and Reagan Youth (who both play Punk Island on Saturday [6/21]) will team up on a bill again at Grand Victory on Sunday (6/22), this time to open for another veteran melodic punk band, Sloppy Seconds, who haven't released an album since 2008's hiatus-ending Endless Bummer, but are still an active live band. Tickets for that show, which also includes The Basicks, are on sale now. All Sloppy Seconds dates are listed below.

Agnostic Front @ Webster Hall
Agnostic Front

While I was checking out the brutality at Maryland Deathfest 2011 back in May (pictures from day 1 HERE, day 2 HERE, day 3 HERE, and day 4 HERE), NYC was keeping it brutal in their own way, with the 2011 edition of the Black & Blue Bowl. The show featured a headlining set from a reunited Gorilla Biscuits. We already posted those pictures, but there was also sets by Agnostic Front, Sick of It All, Terror, Absolution, Antidote, Maximum Penalty, Backtrack, Down To Nothing, No Turning Back, Take Offense, and Bottom Out. It was a serious bill for the NYHC faithful. More pictures and video from the mayhem lie below.

In semi-related news, Cro-Mags have a show coming up with Fucked Up at House of Vans. Cro-Mags played Bowery Ballroom on July 1st.

In more related news, Roger Miret (of Agnostic Front) will hit the road for a string of dates with Roger Miret and The Disasters. The week long trek is in support of the new LP Gotta Get Up Now and will include a stop at Trash Bar on August 19th. Full tour schedule is below.

Tickets are on sale now for Murphy's Law's annual Rocks Off Concert Cruise which takes place on August 10th. Hopefully they have more luck this year.

Agnostic Front

World War 3 I tell ya. Agnostic Front played all of their seminal Victim in Pain with moments of United Blood and even "Gotta Go" for the new-ish schoolers at Bell House on Friday (2/26). Snowstorm be damned, it was a packed house, with a decent crowd for Ultraviolence by the time I arrived at the venue (missed Sexual Suicide), although for my money I wish I had gotten there after the following band, Urban Waste whose live show I couldn't get into despite liking their recorded output.

One of the risks you run by being an older band in a younger-skewing genre (punk, hardcore, hip hop, etc) is coming off like a nostalgia act. I have seen this happen with countless bands who don't have the energy to keep up with either the songs or the crowd (see previously mentioned bands). But for every rule there is an exception. Cro-Mags. The Jesus Lizard. De La Soul. Add Antidote and Agnostic Front to that list.

Antidote hit the stage a shade after 11PM and ripped it, playing songs from their great Thou Shalt Not Kill, as well as covers by Minor Threat ("I Don't Wanna Hear It", Filler") and Black Flag ("Rise Above"). Stage energy was met with equal crowd energy. The original matieral was furious, and covers breathed new life into those hardcore classics. Any other night, I would have been content with Antidote as a headliner.

I wish I had enough fingers and toes to count the number of times that guitarist Vinnie Stigma yelled "This is Hardcore!" during Agnostic Front's set. The vets blasted through a short, but sweet set of material that covered their early years, joined by a chorus of AF fans and Sab Grey of the legendary Iron Cross, who helped with AF's cover of "Crucified". As advertised, Stigma and vocalist Roger Miret were joined on stage by drummer Dave Jones (also Mental Abuse) and Rob Kabula for their set of Victim In Pain material, with bassist Adam Moochie and Dave Jones sitting in for the departed Raybeez for the United Blood material. Killer show, though I wish I wasnt showered in beer as much as I was that night, and I am sure Miret and some stage divers agree; too many people to count slipped and fell on that slippery stage.

Some video of Antidote and Agnostic Front, as well as a ton of pics are below...
