Insurgent punk-hardcore protest band BARFBAG, featuring industry veteran and vocalist David Bason with Brian Viglione (THE DRESDEN DOLLS, THE VIOLENT FEMMES, NINE INCH NAILS) on drums and Kenny Carkeet (AWOLNATION), have launched a rage filled musical assault on fascism, media manipulation, oppression and the Trump administration with the release of their debut EP, The Plastic Age, today.

“The Plastic Age is how our time on this planet will be described. We can do better. As they say, think globally act locally. Clean up your neighborhood, burn down your local gun shop.” - David Bason
BARFBAG was born when Bason was confused by the lack of protest records that were being released in such a politically charged time. He tuned out the social media scream, brushed up on his history, revisited his philosophy books, ingested hundreds of political podcasts and set out to write an album that documented his reaction to his environment. There is strength in numbers so he asked his old buddies to help.
Carkeet and Viglione became Bason’s trusted musical partner. Bason had signed the Dresden Dolls when he was an A&R man for Roadrunner Records. With the comfort of a longstanding friendship, a shared love for and deep knowledge of punk rock, it was the perfect working relationship. Brian proved to be a prolific writer in addition to playing drums, guitar and bass on all songs. Another trusted friend, Joe Cardamone (THE ICARUS LINE) mixed the record.
