BLACKLISTED (U.S.A.) and ZERO ZERO ZERO (NL) have been added to the Pitfest 2018 bill! That means we are about half way with our 2018 line up ;-)
U.S.A. hardcore/punk outfit Blacklisted is coming to Erica for an exclusive 2018 NL show! The band from Philadelphia, was formed in the early 2000s. Right from the start, they were described as "a furiously brief dose of oldschool punk and hardcore dissonance".
Also confirmed: Dutch punkrock/alternative rockband ZERO ZERO ZERO. With (ex)members from Tenement Kids, 16Down, Laternpoll and Dead Giveaway (Pitfest 2016).
Influenced by bands like Dinosaur Jr., Knapsack, Jawbreaker and others. In may 2017, they released their first song, called “If You Say I’m Okay”. Zero Zero Zero will perform on the stage that is curated by SEEIN RED.

We are moving to a new location in the town of Erica (Drenthe, Netherlands). Just take a look at this little movie and imagine festival tents, a food court, chill zone and much more!
Corrupt Moral Altar: imagine Napalm Death and Iron Monkey taking turns to smash you around the head with bricks.
Hailing from Liverpool, this band is fucking the system since early 2012. Comprising former members of Malevolent Creation and current members of Napalm Death, Venomous Concept as well as Tom Dring, the production mind behind Dragged Into Sunlight and UK grind outfit Magpyes, CMA delivers systems overload on every channel. With charged riffs, vocals souding like gargling on broken glass, slumped over slabs of bass heavy filth. The sold-out debut e.p. 'Luciferian Deathcult' surfaced as a limited press produced by Vagrant and released on Baitin' the Trap Records in Summer 2012 to a receptive welcome. It is the clutching hand of desperation and the sickness of alcohol-fuelled regret, saturated with fist-fucking hate, blow after punishing blow.
Corrupt Moral Altar provoke music that is taking only the heaviest, sickest bits of every genre that is already extreme in itself.
London-based hardcore punkers Knuckledust will come to Pitfest 2018!
Since 1996 Pierre, Wema, Ray & Nic have been creating UK Hardcore music and taking it to the world. With 4 albums under their belt and countless split CD's, 7" records and single tracks on compilations this new offering 'Bluffs, Lies, Alibis' is by far their best work to date. Produced and engineered by Igor Wouters (Backfire, Born From Pain, Madball) they have managed to capture a sound that is heavy, clear and crushes eardrums whilst lyrically dealing with current issues in a style that only they seem to deliver which can be bleak, serious subjects but with a message of positivity and hope for the future.
Knuckledust may have been around for over 20 years already, but remain current now more than ever.
From 1996 until the present day Knuckledust has had the same line-up. The band members played in bands like The Business, Deadline and Bun Dem Out.
