Agnostic Front add guitarist

Agnostic Front have named Craig Silverman as their new guitarist ahead of their summer European tour.

The hardcore outfit just delivered a handful of US shows in which they performed classic album Cause For Alarm in full, featuring the lineup who’d recorded the 1986 release: Roger Miret, Vinnie Stigma, Alex Kinon, Rob Kabula and Louie Beatto.

Now they say: “Agnostic Front would like to welcome Craig to the family. He’s no stranger to the hardcore scene – a true veteran Craig has played for Only Living Witness, Blood For Blood, Ramallah, Slapshot and many more.

“We are proud, excited and happy to have him with us on our upcoming tour of Europe in August. See you in the pit!”

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band, a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
