Punk’s leading troubadours Against Me! are back with a new album, a new sound, a new drummer, and a new message. Are you with them or against them?
Rock a look that stands out from the crowd!
Thirty years into his career as frontman for New York hardcore icons Agnostic Front, Cuban-born Roger Miret is living what he calls his “eternal retirement.”
Few records captured the violence and rage on the streets of New York City in the early ’80s like Agnostic Front’s Victim in Pain. Released in 1984 and considered one of the first official releases of the hardcore movement, the songs blended the speed and fury of punk with brutal rants about life on the dirty, drug-addled streets of the Lower East Side. In honor of the album’s 25th anniversary, this reissue pairs the original 11 songs with Agnostic Front’s debut single, United Blood. Songs such as “Power” (“Fighting in the streets/Trying to be free”) and the anti-NYPD rager “Blind Justice” still evoke the hard-knock sound of early hardcore, while the growl of the title track perfectly captures the moment all of the frustration boiled over. Essential.
When shoe designer, Alejandro Ingelmo, walks into his Soho studio wearing jeans and a semitransparent white T-shirt—offering a view of the ink covering his chest, arm, and back—he looks more like a musician who rocks fashion-forward sneakers than a fourth-generation cobbler who creates them.
Fitting in was never an option for Alesana, and they’ve gained all the more fans for it.
