The annual one-day NJ hardcore fest Back to School Jam returns this year and moves from GameChangerWorld to the larger Starland Ballroom. It’s also got a more popular (and very non-hardcore) headliner than ever, pop punk band State Champs.
The lineup also includes The Movielife, Crime In Stereo, Angel Du$t, Speak Low If You Speak Love, Praise, Homesafe, Bright Green, Sleep On It, Westpoint, Bearings, and even more TBA. TIckets go on sale today (7/19) at 1 PM.
The Movielife, who reunited a few years ago, are set to release their first album in 14 years this September. They also have upcoming shows with The Menzingers and they play The Fest.
Crime In Stereo are also playing Is Dead in full on August 13 at Knitting Factory Brooklyn with Prawn and Heart Attack Man (sold out).
