THE GAY AGENDA: "HOMO RIOT" HARDCORE PUNK
THE GAY AGENDA is a hardcore punk band from San Diego, Ca. The band recently released an album titled "Penetrating" on La Escalera Records. It is beyond amazing, top notch hardcore punk with some grind and thrash vibes. The album deserves a solid review in due time, but one you must check out as soon as possible. When asked what exactly is "A Gay Agenda"? bassist, Garrett replied "Uh be gay, be angry, shred face, drink beers?" I'll embed their album below along with a press release about the band. You can follow the band @thegayagendaoffical on facebook and instagram.
"The Gay Agenda calls itself a homo riot hardcore punk outfit. Members include David Hurtt (Stalins of Sound), Luis Soraire (who played bass with Temblad before switching to drums), Matt Penning, and Garrett Ficacci. A self-titled EP was released in February 2018. According to Ficacci, "The band was the brainchild of David Hurtt from some years ago, wanting to create heavy punk music while being unapologetically, irreverently, and identifiably queer."
Their album Penetrating was released in June 2020 via La Escalera Records, preceded by a single for “Homo Riot” featuring Justin Pearson, of the Locust, Retox, and Dead Cross."
