Biography:
It's been nearly two decades since NYC rock and roll pioneers D Generation released their last album, but it's hard to imagine a more appropriate—and a more necessary—time for their biting commentary and fearless punk energy to come roaring back. On their new record, 'Nothing Is Anywhere,' the influential quintet is as sharp and piercing as ever, reflecting on their early days as outsiders and misfits, taking the piss out of New York's new generation of trust fund bullshit artists and corporate sponsors, and pulling no punches in a penetrating portrait of a society that's somehow simultaneously both more polarized and more homogeneous than ever.

Hailed by Rolling Stone as "the best thing to happen to New York noise in the Nineties," D Generation evolved out of the hardcore scene that flourished in NYC's underground in the 1980's. Already respected veterans and seasoned performers by their teenage years, the band's five members—singer Jesse Malin, guitarist Danny Sage, bassist Howie Pyro, drummer Michael Wildwood, and guitarist Richard Bacchus—bonded over a shared disgust with popular culture, writing incendiary, explosive music as a violent reaction to the toothless art that dominated the airwaves around them.
