Roger Miret and the Disasters Bio:
"Let me take you by the hand, back to the streets of New York City," is the opening line from ROGER MIRET AND THE DISASTERS' third album, My Riot. The Disasters represent an honesty rarely seen in music today. A sound which can only come straight from the heart of New York Hard Core's most legendary front man, a sound which can never be replicated or imitated, a sound which can only come from true life experiences. >From someone who was there for the birth of, and lived through the most turbulent times of, one of the most honest genres of music. A genre that's viewed by most as a lifestyle.
On September 10th 2001, The Disasters released their first, "Self Titled" album and have been on tour ever since spreading their message, the voice of True Street Punk and Street Rock 'n Roll. This is a message for the people who are tired of the modern day cliche of punk rock that has been prepackaged and hand delivered. This is a message for the people who long to hear True, Honest Punk Rock. From people who love it, listen to, and live it themselves!
A relentless tour schedule has kept The Disasters living on the road for the past five years. This hard work ethic has transferred itself into a solid fan base, further proving the bands honesty and integrity. They wouldn't have it any other way, The Disasters have a strong belief in the idea that "fans are something you earn through hard work and dedication, they are just as much a part of the music as we are, it's that mutual respect and common ground that makes the music so honest for both the fans and for the band itself".
Their new album, My Riot sees the band exploring even more styles than ever before, including Reggae, Acoustic and straight up Rock 'n Roll. "We've always tried to do something different, something the fans weren't necessarily expecting. That's how we've kept the band's sound so fresh over the years."
With the release of My Riot (In stores late summer 2006), Roger Miret and The Disasters are ready to hit the road and once again prove that there is still a place in the world for true, honest Street Punk, Rock 'n Roll!
