Ten Foot Pole + Straightline + Hateful Monday
04. Nov. 23
For three decades, the US based band Ten Foot Pole has nurtured an international underground skate punk reputation and fan base with thought provoking, aggressive alternative music, playing hundreds of international shows to crowds that prefer non-radio-hit-song-bands, and fearlessly sporting a nice-guy punk attitude. Their tenth full length release, Winning, October 2022 on People of Punk Rock Records, includes eclectic styles, from their classic 90`s double-time anthems to more modern, heacy progressive punk... blending melodic and poppy parts with some hardcore bridges reminiscent of their 80`s hardcore roots.
Ten Foot Pole started in the 80`s as hardcore band Scared Straight, in the Oxnard California Hardcore scene, with the first US tour in 1985. The lineup and style evolved, as TFP helped create the genre of 90`s skate punk, including releases on Epitaph Records and touring heavily with bands such as Face to Face, NOFX, No Use for a Name and Millencolin.
The Band has sold over a half million physical albums, though their DIY underground ethic and sincere songwriting style was never about chasing sales or radio airplay. The years of playing in squats, dive bars and tiny festivals has given way to playing some bigger and nicer venues, but the credibility, the heart in the music and the support of the die-hard fans, still rocks like an underground band.
Straightline: A Munich-based trash metal melodic punk rock band founded in 1998 under the name Softcore.
Hateful Monday: Hateful Monday is a punk rock band from Geneva. They celebrate their 25th anniversary this year.
