Agnostic Front Announce New 40th Anniversary Vinyl Pressing Of “Victim In Pain”


NYHC staple Agnostic Front are marking the 40th anniversary of their 1984 debut album “Victim In Pain” with a special “Victim In Pain (Legacy)” vinyl pressing. The group had that the original stereo mix reel for the record restored by Jamie Howarth and John Chester for this pressing. Additionally, a new mastering job was done by the album’s original producer, hardcore stalwart Don Fury. The band commented yesterday, May 03rd:

“We are excited to announce the official 40 Year Anniversary release of Victim In Pain Legacy!

You can pick up a copy at this year’s Black n Blue Bowl for our 40th Anniversary show on May 18th at The Brooklyn Monarch. Or early birds join @rogermiret for the @generationrecords Oxblood variant release in store May 17th at Generation Records in NYC at 6:30pm while they last! The BnB variant will be available there too!

Victim In Pain Legacy puts you right in the studio with Agnostic Front as they recorded VIP – up close, raw and primal like it was – like you’re sitting two feet from the monitors, which we were!’
Don Fury.

Restored from the original stereo mix reel by Grammy Award-winning technical engineers Jamie Howarth and John Chester and mastered in 2024 by Don Fury. You get the 1984 classic NYHC album like you’ve never heard it! These raw tracks left its mark on the underground hardcore punk scene forever!

This special release will be in its classic gatefold sleeve with black foil stamping. The B side labels will all be hand stamped. In addition there will be 2-fold out posters for one variant and the other variant will have a photo zine containing photos by our friend Jessica Bard, including the classic gatefold shot and never-seen-before photos taken at the same show in 1984. Also included is a 40 Year Anniversary badge packaged in a printed limited edition collector’s bag.

Stay tuned for other variant release drops!!!”
