Agent Orange (Orange, CA)
The Original Southern California Punk/Surf Power Trio, Agent Orange, is one of only a handful of bands who have been continually active since the earliest days of the West Coast Punk Scene.
A small circle of musical rebels who came together to form a movement, they took their place front and center to experience and participate in the explosion of now legendary underground music that was created during the golden era of American Punk Rock.
Being the first to combine the melodic California surf guitar sound with the frantic energy of punk, Agent Orange invented the formula that would come to define the Orange County punk sound. Highly influential to many of the bands who have followed in their path, Agent Orange have always stayed one step ahead.
Their strong connection to the Action Sports world has resulted in their music providing the soundtrack to numerous major motion pictures, video games, surf and skate films, television, and live sports events.
The last of the true independents, Agent Orange have managed to stay true to their roots, while always moving forward. Powered by a loyal following built up through years of explosive live performances all over the world, Agent Orange continue to deliver their Fullblown-Supercharged-Punk-Surf Sound on an international basis, with a never ending schedule of tours in the United States, Canada, South America, Europe, Australia, and Japan.
C’mon down front and expose yourself to Agent Orange.
The Atom Age (Oakland, CA – Asian Man Records)
The Atom Age find their inspiration from the dust covered collections of unhinged 60’s Punk and R&B, whose crazed energy was once misconceived as a better fit for your trashcan than for your turntable. While taking many of their cues from these primitive pilgrims of punk, The Atom Age still strive to lay down their own modernized sound.
Walk the Plank (Say-10 Records – Washington DC)
Close your eyes and think back to that feeling you had when you first mastered riding a bike. Feel like a badass? Cemetery Vacation… will leave you feeling charged up and ready to take on the world. Coming from one of the most storied scenes in the history of punk rock, Walk the Plank have managed to release a record that lives up to that tradition without stooping to clichés or nostalgia.
The Alements (Annapolis, MD – Snubbed Records)
1990’s SoCal punk band trapped in a present day Annapolis MD body. Melodic punk that will take you back to the early days of Fat and Epitaph Records. Enjoy Responsibly!
