Agnostic Front announce new album, “The American Dream Died”

At long last, New York hardcore legends Agnostic Front have announced release information for their eleventh studio album, “The American Dream Died.”

The album (cover art is above, obviously), was produced by Madball’s Freddy Cricien, and is slated for release on April 7th in the US (April 4th in Europe) via Nuclear Blast Records. Here’s what frontman Roger Miret had to say about the new album’s title:

We chose this title because we want to open up people’s eyes to what’s going on in this country. We have a lot to say. Not everyone realizes that our government and the people who run this country are so corrupt, greedy and ruthless. We need to educate the ones we reach. We’re losing our values. We address real issues from full blown corruption and scandals to unjust police abuse and brutality. Everything’s we stood for as a country is going down the drain. But we still somewhat have our freedom of speech. We’re expressing it all through this record while we can.

We’ll keep you posted as pre-order information becomes available. In the meantime, check out the tracklist for “The American Dream Died” below.

Charges dropped against the guy who was jailed for posting Exodus lyrics

Last September, we reported that an Exodus fan named James Evans was arrested for posting the lyrics to “Class Dismissed (A Hate Primer)” on his Facebook page, and was jailed by Kentucky police for making terroristic threats. He spent more than a week in jail before being released without having the charges dropped.

Well, this time, the charges were dropped against Evans. Represented by the ACLU, Evans through an ACLU attorney stated, “Evans is relieved that these very serious criminal charges have been dismissed, and he is grateful for all of the support he has received during this difficult time. A conviction on first-degree terroristic threatening could have landed Evans in jail for up to 10 years.”

The police and DA’s office have not released a statement, but we’ll keep you posted as more details on the situation come to light.

Exodus released their new album Blood In, Blood Out on October 14th via Nuclear Blast, which is the band’s first with vocalist Steve “Zetro” Souza since 2004’s Tempo of the Damned. To support the album, the band will tour with Slayer and Suicidal Tendencies this fall.

The guy who was arrested for posting lyrics by a metal band on Facebook speaks

Nearly a week ago, we reported that an Exodus fan named James Evans was arrested for posting the lyrics to “Class Dismissed (A Hate Primer)” on his Facebook page. About the incident, Evans, who was charged with a Class C felony for “terrorist threatenings” and faced the possibility of between five and ten years in prison, tells the press:

“I couldn’t believe it got that out of hand. At the same time it’s worrisome because I have a family to take care of. I have a three-month-old son.”

Exodus will release their new album Blood In, Blood Out on October 14th via Nuclear Blast, which is the band’s first with vocalist Steve “Zetro” Souza since 2004’s Tempo of the Damned. To support the album, the band will tour with Slayer and Suicidal Tendencies this fall.



Man arrested for posting lyrics of a metal band on Facebook

We don’t often cover thrash metal bands on Dying Scene, but an Exodus fan named James Evans was arrested for posting the lyrics to “Class Dismissed (A Hate Primer)” on his Facebook page, and has been charged with making terroristic threats for posting the words to that song, which describe a school shooting to Facebook. About the incident, Exodus wrote:

“The idea that an individual in this great country of ours could be arrested for simply posting lyrics to a song is something I never believed could happen in a free society.

The song was written as a view through the eyes of a madman and in no way endorses that kind of fucked up behavior. It was the Virginia Tech massacre perpetrated by Seung-Hui Cho that was the subject and inspiration.”

Exodus will release their new album Blood In, Blood Out on October 14th via Nuclear Blast, which is the band’s first with vocalist Steve “Zetro” Souza since 2004’s Tempo of the Damned. To support the album, the band will tour with Slayer and Suicidal Tendencies this fall.
