The Regulators (aka Darryl Jenifer and Dr. Know of Bad Brains and John Joseph and Mackie Jayson of Cro-Mags), The Wilding Incident (featuring Lord Ezec on vocals, Jimmy Williams of Maximum Penalty on drums and Sacha Jenkins on guitar), and Earth Crisis join a lineup that already included Crumbsuckers, Madball, Sick of It All, The Rival Mob, Dave Smalley (playing Dag Nasty, ALL, and Down By Law songs), and more. Full lineup below and on the flyer above.
Two-day passes are on sale HERE, and you can get single day passes for Saturday HERE and Sunday HERE. You can also purchase tickets in person from NYHC Tattoos (127 Stanton St), Generation Records (210 Thompson St), and Lotus Tattoos (291 W Main St).
The Regulators last played NYC in September at Bowery Electric (that time just as "Regulator"). Watch a video from that show, with the updated BNBB lineup, below...
Like New York City contemporaries such as Agnostic Front and the Cro-Mags, the Crumbsuckers were one of the original purveyors of 1980s crossover: the bridging of metal and hardcore that temporarily united the two divergent tribes of metalheads and punks into one bloody unified mosh pit. Getting their start in 1983, the band were soon an integral part of New York's Lower East Side-based hardcore scene, cutting their teeth at the legendary dive A7 before moving on to CBGB's famed Sunday matinees, as they and the movement gained strength. [Allmusic]Long Island crossover thrash vets The Crumbsuckers last reunited for their 20th anniversary in 2006, and they'll be regrouping yet again for this year's Black N' Blue Bowl, the annual NYC hardcore fest happening May 16 and 17 at Webster Hall.
Since we last spoke, more bands were added to BNB Bowl, including Candiria, Madball, Dave Smalley (performing Dag Nasty, Down By Law and All Songs), The Rival Mob, Fury of Five, Devil In Me and Booze & Glory. They join other previously-announced bands such as Sick Of It All (who also play NateFest). Ticket info still TBA. Updated lineup below.
In related news, Richmond, VA's United Blood Fest was announced for March 27 & 28, the weekend after NateFest. It happens at The Canal Club with Judge and Breakdown (who both played BNB Bowl 2013), plus Code Orange, Cold World, Terror, Rotting Out, Give, God's Hate, Heavy Chains and more. Full lineup below. Breakdown's only other announced show at the moment is opening night 1 of No Warning's reunion shows in NJ.

Down By Law
Screeching Weasel (whose members all quit two years ago, leaving frontman Ben Weasel [the only founding member who had remained at that point] to continue the band on his own with a new lineup) and Down By Law are teaming up for a one-off show in NYC on June 15 at Irving Plaza. The show also features Huntingtons and Furious George. Tickets go on sale Friday (2/1) at 10 AM. Show flyer below.
Down By Law, one of the many bands fronted by Dave Smalley (who also fronted All, Dag Nasty, and DYS), reunited in 2008 and returned in 2012 with Champions At Heart, their first album of original material since 2003's Windwardtidesandwaywardsails. The album picks up with the same kind of melodic hardcore that the band left off with, and it might be more of the same but it's still fast, punchy, and a solid return after a nine year absence. You can watch the video for Champions At Heart track, "Warriors United," and listen to a spotify stream of the whole album below.
You may know the name Dave Smalley from one of his bands like Down By Law, All, or Dag Nasty, but one of Smalley's first roles was as frontman for Boston hardcore band DYS. DYS reunited in 2010 and have since created new material for release via Bridge 9, dropping a single per month including their latest track "Unloaded" which makes its streaming debut here and is out TODAY via iTunes. Head to Bridge 9 for the previous two singles, "Wild Card" and "Sound of Our Town" featuring Dicky Barrett of The Mighty Mighty Bosstones.
We cornered Dave Smalley to ask him a few quick questions regarding DYS, the reunion, and the single-per-month model of releasing the new DYS material. The results, and that song stream, are below.
We previously discussed Phily's Riot Fest East that will feature an appearance from the mighty Descendents and The Suicide Machines who they also play with in NYC. Riot Fest East, an offshoot of the Chicago festival, happens on September 24th.
The Chicago version of the festival, October 5-9, previously announced that Weezer, Social Distortion, Descendents, 7 Seconds, ALL (two different eras!), Helmet, and X (playing Los Angeles) were all on the lineup, but left one big announcement for today...
On Friday October 7, 2011 Danzig will headline Riot Fest and perform a career spanning show featuring sets of Danzig, Samhain and Misfits songs with none other than Doyle joining on guitar the Misfits set. We've waited years for this and we can't wait to see the inside of the Congress Theater turn into a churning sea of humanity.Tickets for both Riot Fest Chicago and Riot Fest East are now on sale, and more band announcements are stil to come(!).
