The Fest is back for round 11 (!) adding bands from across the spectrum of punk rock for the multi-day Gainesville, Florida extravaganza. The Fest announced its initial lineup earlier this month but has doubled that number, bringing the total tally to a whopping 217, and there are more to go! The lineup includes Lagwagon, Naked Raygun, Baroness, Red Fang, Off with Their Heads, Torche, Valient Thorr, 7 Seconds, F.Y.P., Braid, Titus Andronicus, Toys That Kill, Underground Railroad to Candyland, Frank Turner and many more (see below). Tickets are now on sale (and sold out quick last year).
Full lineup is below, expect to see some surprises at The Fest as well; Sleepytime Trio reunited there last year.
Across the three songs that make up Philadelphia's Cop Problem debut 7", the foursome remind us of what started the crust movement before the fashionistas sunk their claws into it, political punk rock. Political leanings aside, the band's brand of crust mirrors that of Tragedy, employing clean guitar leads to give the galloping d-beat and piercing vocals of Deb Cohen a melodic direction that you can hum along to. Stream the band's debut 7" below and pick up a copy via the band. Want one for free? I have two available for giveaway. Details are at the bottom of this post.
Look for Cop Problem on the road in the coming weeks, though no NYC shows to speak of yet (they played ABC No Rio in February). All tour dates, the EP stream, contest details and some video, below...
