Decibelles (FRA) / Molly Punch (D)
2005 gründeten drei Highschool Teenager in Lyon (Frankreich) eine Band ohne zu ahnen, dass genau diese Band mit dem Namen DECIBELLES im Laufe der Jahre eine sehr eigene und vor allem eigenständige musikalische Identität aus Noise, Punk und Edgy Pop entwickeln würde.
2017 erscheint mit TIGHT nun ein neues Album, bei welchem vor allem der schneidende Gesang, die noisige Gitarre, der brutale Bass und das unkonventionelle Schlagzeugspiel in Kombination mit gereizten Pop-Elementen und deutlicher Riot-Grrrl Inspiration einen Sound erzeugen, der so gar nicht in die gängigen Kategorisierungen passt.
Dazu kommt eine Live-Performance, die so intensiv und krachend ist, dass die DECIBELLES auch Vergleiche mit den besten Live-Bands dieser Sparte nicht zu scheuen brauchen. Nicht umsonst haben keine geringeren als SHELLAC die Band als Support für einige Shows ihrer Europatour 2017 eingeladen.
Seit 2017 machen Molly Punch aus Köln melodischen Punkrock mit ordentlich Riot Grrrl Spirit und spielen Songs über überschätzte Schriftsteller, Tiere, Aliens & allgemeines Traurigsein. Das erinnert an die 90er, Distillers in DIY oder betrunken Streiten mit Virginia Woolf, aber eben trotzdem eigen. Die in Schweiß und Herzblut getränkte Demo-EP “Animal Kingdom“ macht Hoffnung, dass Grunge noch nicht ganz tot ist – und sich vor allem bei Molly Punch auf der Bühne wieder blicken lässt.

Clowns (AUS) / Tarantino (NL)
Bayside suburbs in 2011 with their non-apologetic, raw and remorseless style of thrashy, old school, hardcore punk, Australia's favourite hellraisers, Clowns, were always destined to create an air-punching, stage-diving, punk rock frenzy.
Over the last couple of years, the four piece have continued to prove why they are one of the most sought after punk bands in the World, playing hundreds of explosive, sold out, shows across the Globe, alongside punk royalty including Adolescents, Hard-Ons, Rise Against and NOFX.
Clowns have also become regulars on the International Punk Festival circuit, annihilating the stage at China's Midi Music Festival, Chicago's prestigious Riot Fest, The UK's Rebellion Festival, and most recently, Fest Pod Parou in Czech Republic.
With influences that range from 70’s punk, to underground Australian rock and thrash, Clowns continue to load each sold out show with unhinged energy, chaos and unpredictable fun, leaving b e e r - s o a k e d p u n t e r s s t o k e d t h a t t h e y l e f t t h e i r c o u c h e s .
With two full length LP’s under their belt, including 2013’s “I’m Not Right”, and the highly acclaimed LP "Bad Blood" (2015), Clowns have just released their intensely catchy new track 'Destroy the Evidence', cementing their cult status and putting them on high rotation on Australian radio stations and bedroom record players alike.
What do you get when you mix dirty punk and old school hardcore? An explosive cocktail called Tarantino. Tarantino is a dutch hardcore formation from Noord Brabant, The Netherlands and their only goal is playing as much hard shows in sweaty venues as possible. The show is energetic, fast and unscrupulous just like hardcore should be.

MDC (USA) / Dr Know (USA)
Formed in late 1970s as The Stains and playing their first gig under this name in August 1980, MDC were one of three pioneering hardcore punk bands in Austin, Texas, in the early '80s, alongside The Dicks and Big Boys. These bands frequently played together and established the Austin hardcore scene. They released one single as the Stains in 1981, featuring a slower version of the future MDC song "John Wayne Was a Nazi" backed with "Born to Die". Both songs were later released on the debut MDC album.
By 1982 the band had relocated to San Francisco, California, and renamed themselves MDC. By this point the band were active participants in the growing hardcore scene and released their debut LP Millions of Dead Cops on their own label, R Radical; Jello Biafra's Alternative Tentacles helped with distribution. The album is now widely considered a punk classic, and features songs such as "John Wayne Was a Nazi", "Dick for Brains", and the harsh criticism of the police, "I Remember". Other targets of criticism devoid of irony included capitalism ("Corporate Death Burger"), homophobia ("America's So Straight"), and American culture ("Violent Rednecks").
During the summer of 1982 they became involved in the Rock Against Reagan Tour, during which time they fell out with the band Bad Brains when Rastafarian singer H.R. learned that Big Boys' singer, Randy Turner, was gay. H.R. and MDC's Dave Dictor had an intense confrontation. Upon Bad Brains' departure from the bill, they refused to return a loan owed to Big Boys and instead left a note that reportedly read, "burn in hell bloodclot faggot." The incident resulted in the MDC song Pay to Come Along. For MDC, 1982 ended with a tour of Europe with the Dead Kennedys which brought the band greater exposure in the punk scene outside of the U.S., especially in the UK.
MDC's singer, Dave Dictor, returned with an entirely new backing line-up in 2000, which included Long Island musicians Matt Van Cura,(bass) Erik Mischo,(guitar) and John Soldo,(Drums). MDC released a new album, Magnus Dominus Corpus, in 2004. They took part in a 25th anniversary world tour in 2005, with an all-original lineup. Following the death of Mikey Donaldson in September 2007, MDC has been touring the U.S. and Europe extensively with the Dictor/Posner/Smith/Schvitz lineup.
Recently, the band has been based in Portland, Oregon.
Dr. Know is a punk band which began as a Nardcore band from Oxnard, California. They are regarded as founding fathers of the so-called "Nardcore" punk movement. The band was started by Kyle Toucher, Ismael Hernandez, and Robin Cartwright in early 1981, and after auditioning a few singers, local Silverstrand Beach surfer/skater and punker Brandon Cruz was chosen. Silverstrand Beach in Oxnard, California was the birthplace of Nardcore. The band recorded studio versions of several early songs with Cruz, which led to television appearances and gigs on the Los Angeles circuit.
Dr. Know disbanded to pursue other projects in 1991. Since that time Slayer covered "Mr. Freeze" on their Undisputed Attitude album. The Dr. Know song "Piece of Meat," written by Toucher and Cruz, is used on the 1998 (season two) South Park episode entitled "Clubhouse."
In November 2016 the band began rehearsing with Cruz, Hernandez, Larz White, ex drummer from the metal era, and Fred Mattaquin, the 2nd guitarist on the Burn ep. They went to Europe with Stalag 13 to begin the Nardcore Summer Tour on July 22nd, 2017, starting off with a festival in Copenhagen with Discharge.
