Bridge Nine Records will release the Blu-ray edition of THE GODFATHERS OF HARDCORE, the critically-acclaimed, Ian McFarland-directed documentary, on November 15. The film is available digitally here.

THE GODFATHERS OF HARDCORE film is an intimate portrait about two of the most influential men in underground music — Roger Miret and Vinnie Stigma of the iconic New York hardcore punk rock band Agnostic Front. For over 35 years, the duo has shared something inside they couldn’t scream loud enough. Something they couldn’t play hard enough. Something they couldn’t stop, even if they wanted to. Agnostic Front is the combined roar from the hearts of two guys who have fought their whole lives, and whose pain, passion, and power helped ignite a movement.

Starting in the ’80s on the streets of the Lower East Side, Agnostic Front rose to play a key role in defining, shaping, and establishing the sound and code of conduct for a still-thriving, now-worldwide culture. Today, Roger, 54, and Vinnie, 63 remain the very embodiment of hardcore, representing endurance, perseverance, brotherhood, strength against oppression and the will to keep going—obstacles be damned.

The Blu-ray edition of the film features eight different language subtitle options and will be available in a standard case as well as a special version housed in a gatefold 7″ jacket cover, with a bonus, seven song live recording from the Agnostic Front show Berlin that is featured in the film.
