Pumpehuset and Killtown Bookings presents

Hardcore punk legends occupy the Pumpehuset in August

With roots deeply rooted in New York City's motley punk scene, Cro-Mags have been pioneering hardcore punk for decades. Formed in 1981 by charismatic frontman Harley Flanagan, the band has cemented its reputation as one of the most influential groups in punk history.

With their signature sound, Cro-Mags have set the standard for what hardcore punk music can be. Their 1986 debut album, "The Age of Quarrel", stands as a monument to the band's raw talent and indomitable spirit. Still hailed as a classic of the genre, the album is an uncompromising display of punk's raw power and musical prowess.

But Cro-Mags is more than just music. Their lyrics, which often challenge society's norms and political status quo, have made them voices for a generation of marginalized and frustrated youth. Through their music, they manage to express the pain, anger and hope of those who feel neglected by society.

Even after decades on the scene, Cro-Mags continue to shape the punk landscape and inspire new generations of musicians and fans. Their legacy as pioneers in hardcore punk is indisputable, and their influence will continue to be felt for a long time to come. Cro-Mags is not just a band; they are a movement, an energy, an unadulterated manifestation of the indomitable spirit of punk.
