Agnostic Front To Reissue “Live At CBGB”
Agnostic Front‘s 1989 live release, “Live At CBGB“, will be reissued through Bridge Nine on July 17th. The new pressing of the effort will feature an embossed version of the original cover art. It will be pressed on limited edition red, white and blue striped vinyl with other color options also being made available.
Speaking on the reissue the bands own Roger Miret said:
“With this year being our 30 year anniversary as a band with myself singing I wanted to play a special show here and there so I came up with the idea of playing our classic Live At CBGB set. This was the set front to back from our legendary live recording released in 1989. That was a magical time for the band and Hardcore was thriving at it’s best in 1988 when it was recorded.
As an honorable family member with the Bridge Nine crew, I knew that the label should be home to this special re-release as much as CBGB was home to Agnostic Front. We are making this re-release very special for the record collector in a red, white and blue color and our timeless original cover embossed to add that punch it held back in 1989 as intense today in 2012! Along with this special re-release we are doing a handful of special shows in the U.S. to coordinate with the release.
This will be a great release team effort with Agnostic Front and Bridge Nine… here it is – the glory days of 1988 New York City Hardcore as relevant today, tomorrow and forever!”
