Guitar Gangsters (Punkrock, UK) + Authority Zero (Punk, SkaPunk, USA) + The Hawaiians (Surf Punk, NRW)

Guitar Gangsters sind inspiriert von Bands der ersten UK Punk Welle, wie The Clash, The Boys, Generation X, und The Jam.. Zusammen mit der Energie und Attitüde von US Bands wie My Chemical Romance und Social Distortion ergibt das DIE Band in der DU immer sein wolltest! Bei einer Gangsters-Show wirst du keine abgedroschenen politischen Parolen hören. Was dich erwartet, sind in Zwei-Minuten Power-Punk Krachern verpackte Querschnitte aus dem „urban life“, Stories über „bad attitude“, Sex, Ambitionen, Erfolg und Mißerfolg. Guitar Gangsters werden nicht deine Welt verändern. Das überlassen sie den politischen Bands. Wenn du aber Guitar Gangsters live erlebt hast, wirst du das Gefühl mitnehmen, selbst die Welt verändern zu können!
In ihrer über 30-jährigen Bandgeschichte haben Guitar Gangsters 10 Studioalben, zwei Live-Alben und mehrere Singles veröffentlicht. Sie haben in 19 Ländern live gespielt, u.a. in den USA, Brasilien und auf Malta! Sie waren zusammen mit Stiff Little Fingers auf England Tour und in Europa mit The Lurkers, 999 und TV Smith unterwegs. Guitar Gangsters waren auf fast allen Punk-Festivals in Europa vertreten und spielen weiterhin mit der Eindringlichkeit und Attitüde, die sie 1987 dazu getrieben haben, ihre Gitarren umzuhängen. Sie spielen immer noch so als müssten sie damit ihren eigenen Arsch retten, zumindest aber die Zukunft des Rock’n’Roll so wie wir sie kennen!

Im Oktober 2017 veröffentlichen sie ihr neues Album „Sex and money“, produziert von Ramones Produzent Daniel Rey. Und 2019 erweitert sich die Gangsters Familie mit Gitarrist Ed.

Authority Zero,
since ’94 Authority Zero has brought their unique blend of anthemic melodic-punk, ska, and reggae tone to the masses. A lot has changed in their 20 plus years since the band’s inception but they have always found a way to persist and thrive in todays ever-changing music landscape. “It’s been a long and adventurous trek”, says Jason Devore (singer/songwriter). The band was formed in Mesa, Arizona by a group of high school friends with ample ambition but no lofty expectations of what the project could become. With the release of their debut album, A Passage in Time (2002, Lava Records), the band’s career gained momentum and they quickly found themselves on the road, touring extensively with acts such as Pennywise, Sum 41, Flogging Molly, H20, and many more. Over the past ten years Authority Zero has gained international acclaim, spending time on the European festival circuit as well as stints in Australia, Russia, Japan. They have released a total of six full length studio albums, many holding spots on Billboard’s Chart and their music has been featured in numerous video games, tv shows, and movie soundtracks. The band’s many successes have been accompanied by a few bumps in the road including a slew of line-up changes, music industry letdowns, as well as having their van, trailer and equipment stolen while on tour in Texas. The secret to their longevity is simple; keep it pure and believe in your music.

Now, 24 years since the band’s inception, the future remains as bright as ever for Authority Zero, consisting of singer Jason DeVore, bassist Mike Spero, guitarist Dan Aid and drummer Chris Dalley. In June of 2018, the guys got back to work at legendary Fort Collins studio, The Blasting Room (Rise Against, Descendents, NOFX) to record their seventh full length album, Persona Non Grata with producer and iconic punk drummer, Bill Stevenson (Black Flag/Descendents/ALL). “The writing process for recording our new album (Persona Non Grata) was simply awesome. The music and lyrical content came together so organically in such a short amount of time given that our last record, Broadcasting To The Nations, only came out a year ago. Mike, Dan, Chris, and I put our hearts into this one and we are all extremely proud of the work we were able to do as a collective. The music and sound are classic Authority Zero but with a slightly revised approach. For the the fans as well as ourselves we strive to give each record its own individual character and life.” Said DeVore.

The new album, Persona Non Grata will be Authority Zero’s first self-released studio album and will be available on December 7, 2018. There will be an album release show on December 8th at the Marquee Theater in Tempe, Arizona. The release of Persona Non Grata will be followed by an early spring European Tour in 2019 and a summer headlining tour of the United States.
