Agnostic Front at Power of the Riff, 2012 (more by Greg Cristman)
After saving This is Hardcore Fest by filling in, Agnostic Front sit atop the first round of announced bands at East Coast Tsunami Fest 2014. The initial lineup posted on Stereokiller not only includes the NYHCers, but bands such as Ignite, Sick of it All, Cro-Mags, and. . . Obituary. Makes sense when you think about it. Anyway, the fest takes place on September 26 through September 28 at Reverb in Reading, Pennsylvania. Ticket information will be announced soon. Full lineup below.
Agnostic Front and many other hardcore bands, including Bad Brains, Gorilla Biscuits, Bold, Born Against, Judge, Misfits, Murphy's Law, Quicksand, Rorschach, Sheer Terror, Sick of It All, Youth of Today and still more, have also been interviewed for the new book NYHC: New York Hardcore 1980-1990 that's coming out on Bazillion Points in November. The Tony Rettman-authored oral history takes on the formative decade and apparently goes pretty deep. According to Bazillion:
Tony Rettman's ambitious oral history captures ten years of struggle, including the scene's regional rivalries with D.C. and Boston, the birth of moshing, the clash and coming to terms of hardcore and heavy metal, the straightedge movement, and the unlikely influence of Krishna consciousness.That thing must be longer than John Joseph's resume.

If you're going to go out, go out with a blowout. New Jersey straight-edgers the Mongoloids are living that axiom with their last show. They'll be featured at Back to School Jam 2014 held at GameChanger World in Howell, New Jersey on August 23. And, as long as you're not allergic to camo shorts, X'd up hands, and breakdowns, the bill is absurdly stacked: Foundation, Death Threat, Bitter End, the fresh off of Black n' Blue Bowl Incendiary, and a ton more. Advanced tickets, with some early bird savings, are available now.
The Mongoloids are wrapping up a near ten year career that has seen the band tour with some of punk's finest -- Agnostic Front, The Cro-Mags, Terror, H2O, Sick Of It All, etc. -- as well as releasing splits with bands like Kids Like Us and Broken Teeth. Their discography includes three LPs, the last of which, Mongo Life, was released in 2013. Before they check out, the crew will do one last loop of the Eastern/Midwestern United States in late May through June.
In fact, a few of the Back to School Jam bands have a slate interesting engagements lined up. For instance, Death Threat, Incendiary, and Suburban Scum will be at This is Hardcore and Foundation will be on the outrageous bill of Judge, H2O, and Blacklisted in Chicago this June.
The list of all Mongoloids tour dates, the Back to School Jam lineup, and streams aplenty for your quiet office cubicle moshing needs appear below...

"The Age of Quarrel is the first album from the New York hardcore band Cro-Mags. It was released on Profile Records in 1986 and subsequently re-released by Another Planet in 1994, along with their second album, 1989's Best Wishes, on the same disc. The video for "We Gotta Know" received airplay on MTV at the time (during their heavy metal specialty show), and was one of the first-ever clips on MTV to feature slam dancing and crowd surfing." [Wikipedia]Andrew WK is also part owner of the venue that the Cro-Mags (the John Joseph version previously known as Cro-Mags jam) played in last night (12/29). More pictures from the show, multiple bloody noses and the setlist included, below...
