AGNOSTIC FRONT Singer ROGER MIRET Offers First Track-by-Track Descriptions of New Album
NEW ALBUM MY LIFE MY WAY IN STORES MARCH 22 ON NUCLEAR BLAST
New York Hardcore Legends AGNOSTIC FRONT are less than three weeks away from releasing their latest album “My Life, My Way” in North America. Frontman Roger Miret recently took some time to reflect on the upcoming release and outlined each song track by track. Today will be the first installment of this series as Roger speaks about the first four songs on the album:
1. City Streets – This song is about growing up in the streets of NYC back in the day. It tells the story of how hard times as a kid made me a better person today. Learning from my mistakes and changing the negative times into a positive. Giving back to my mentor, the streets of New York City!
2. More Than A Memory – A song written in the memory of Mike’s mom. How she influenced him to always follow his heart no matter what. She will never be forgotten!
3. Us Against The World – Talks about fighting against oppression, and against the people that stand in our way to live the way we wanna live. Stand up for your rights!
4. My Life My Way – Speaks about how i always did things on my own terms. Learning the hard way and always staying true to myself and this movement i adore staying genuine to what i believed in. So i will do it my way!

AGNOSTIC FRONT,recently revealed the cover art and track listing to their upcoming record entitled My Life My Way. Cover artwork was brought to life this time by artist Todd Hubber,who also works with vocalist Roger Miret on designing his street wear clothing line American Made Kustom (www.americanmadekustom.com).
Miret commented on the meaning behind the artwork: “The concept was to capture the D.I.Y. ethic and crude themed artistry of the early punk flyers, with a nod to the era of crime and pulp comic themes of the early 50’s. Society deemed those materials as having no social redeeming values, and as a contributor to youth delinquency. Similarly outcasted were punk and hardcore in the early day for its aggressive, anti-authority message, and dangerous aura. My Life My Way is a throwback to the early days, and AGNOSTIC FRONT has proven that what society deems unredeeming, has been, still is, and will continue to be relevant.”
