Roger Miret of Agnostic Front


Roger Miret is the vocalist for New York Hardcore band Agnostic Front, the street punk group Roger Miret and the Disasters, and the hardcore band The Alligators.

Agnostic Front is considered to be one of the bands that created New York hardcore hence Roger Miret is the Godfather of New York Hardcore punk.

Late last year Roger Miret, frontman of NYHC originalAgnostic Front, released a memoir he’d been working on since the 90s. 

My Riot: Agnostic Front, Grit, Guts & Glory is both a brilliant inside account of the birth of the legendary New York Hardcore scene and a brutal and unflinching autobiography. 

Born in Cuba, Miret fled with his family to the US to escape the Castro regime. In the book he recounts not only his time in Agnostic Front, but also his experiences growing up in a strange new land with an abusive stepfather, his time in prison, and the roles that poverty and violence played in shaping the grit that became critical to his survival.
