Antagonizers ATL - Bad Situation
Based in Atlanta, Antagonizers ATL are a "working class street rock and roll" band who line up Bohdan Zacharyj (vocals), Richard "Mcdick" Henderson (guitar/vocals), Billy Fields (bass) and Eric Antell (drums). Previous bands that the members have played in include the likes of Anti-Heroes, Condemned 84, The Glory, A.P.A, Vibram 94, HR (Bad Brains) and The Breakaways. This version of the band came together in 2012 following Zacharyi's move from North Carolina to Atlanta.
Earning comparisons with the likes of Social Distortion, Rancid etc, they released the Hold Your Ground ep in 2013 and split eps with DDC (Drink & Destroy Crew) and The Queers. Now they're back with a debut album on Pirates Press Records aptly titled Working Class Street Punk and it's really rather good. You can check it out, along with the earlier releases, here : https://antagonizersatl.bandcamp.com/. There's a few other split's on the horizon including one with English band The Crack.
When it comes down to choosing between your crew and your girl, it's a Bad Situation......
