CRUMBSUCKERS CANCEL OCTOBER 2015 NY DATES
The Crumbsuckers have announced that their shows scheduled for the weekend of October 16th (Poughkepsie, NY and Patchogue, Long Island) have been cancelled. The band made their return to the stage at this year’s BNB Bowl/NYC in May after being away since 2006. Below is the statement they gave on their Facebook although there was no mention if this is the end of the current re-union or just a cancellation of the October shows.
To all of our fans,
Crumbsuckers regret to announce that our shows scheduled for October 2015 have been canceled. Tickets can be refunded from place of purchase. For Black-n-Blue Bowl 2015 we feel we delivered our A game. It took a lot of work and dedication, and we are all very proud of that performance. But it’s tough on these old souls…
We had a great time reconnecting with old friends and turning on some new fans to the Crumbsuckers sound. Without you, the fans, it never would have been possible. Thank you all for being a part of it.
Live in your life of dreams…

ON THE OFFENSE, THINGS WE SAY & ZOMBIE FIGHT BREAK UP
In Effect Hardcore passes on our condolences to 3 hard working bands who since our last update have announced they are breaking up...
ON THE OFFENSE from NY started out in 2011 and put out a nice CD on Dead City Records titled “Frontline” in April of 2013. Singer Sean and Mike (bass) move on to a new project called EXAMINE and Shonen (drums) is now playing with BASTARD CLAN. Check out this 2013 INTERVIEW we did with them.
THINGS WE SAY from South Korea started in 2004. They caught many people’s attention in 2013 when they did a short tour of the US leading up to their This Is Hardcore performance. Check out this October 2013 INTERVIEW we did with them.
ZOMBIE FIGHT from NY started out in 2010 and had a slew of EP’s as well as their “Echoes Of The Past” full length to their credit. Much like On The Offense they played out more than regularly in the NYC area. Their drummer Lee has started a new band called MTA and are currently looking for a drummer and a lead guitarist. Contact them if you are interested and also check out a November 2013 INTERVIEW we did with them. Mtahardcoremusic@gmail.com
