Six Reasons Infest Might Be the Most Hardcore Band in Punk History

Leave it to local punk and metal promotions powerhouse Speedfreek to convince Valencia, California's Infest to fly cross-country to Miami for the band's first show outside of its home state. Ever.

Infest's discography is meager, and the band never left California. But somehow the group has still reached every punk-rock corner of Planet Earth, inspiring myriad stage dives, countless high-fives, rabid finger-pointing, and every other imaginable pit move.

And now our city's too-good-to-be-true curators of brutal tuneage are making history by flying this legendary unit to South Florida. In preparation for this momentously mosh-worthy occasion at Churchill's Pub, we here at Crossfade spoke with Speedfreek's Roger Forbes about why Infest might be the most hardcore band in punk history.
