Roger Miret, singer and songwriter for the New York based band Roger Miret and The Disasters, delivers thirteen new tracks of anthemic melodies on 1984, the follow-up to their 2002 self-titled release. In stores February 22 on HellCat Records, the new full-length album is highly anticipated by fans of the punk world; from hardcore to street punk 1984 is palatable to all who love a solid rock album.
Already established through the hardcore band Agnostic Front, Roger Miret and The Disasters divert from the loud, raw music of N.Y.H.C. (New York hardcore), to create an album filled with melodic street anthems, hooks, and punk style. Fans of Lars Frederiksen and The Bastards, Horrorpops, and Nekromantix discovered Roger Miret and The Disasters this past spring on the Punks vs. Psychos tour, and have become a solid base for the band. From the fist pumping opening “Loud and Proud,” to the dramatic tempo changes in “New York City,” 1984 gives fans a glimpse into Roger’s life through stories not clouded in fantasy, but told in honest reality. Laced with influences from Blitz, Stiff Little Fingers, Sham 69, The Business, and The Clash, 1984 does not disappoint.
