I AGAINST I (NL)
In 1994 I AGAINST I was founded in Dordrecht (NL). Bob, Jasper and Ronald found the best way to get rid of their (teenage) energy was by playing up-tempo, melodic punk rock songs. Before they knew it they were the first European band ever to sign a contract with Brett Gurewitz’ label Epitaph Records.
Bill Stevenson and Stephen Egerton of the Descendents produced their debut album Headcleaner, which became a Dutch punk rock classic. In the following years two more records saw the light of day and hundreds of shows took the guys throughout Europe. Playing with bands such as Descendents, Blink-182, Down by Law, Bad Religion and Undeclinable Ambuscade. They even played the infamous “Punkhol” in Erica in 1998!
In 2008, I AGAINST I disbanded for almost 10 years...But: early 2017 the guys were back on the punkrock map and even a new album is slotted for release in 2018!
