Vocalist of Russian Hardcore Punk Band Crispy Newspaper Arrested For Anti-War Stance

Word is out that the vocalist of Yakutsk (Russia) hardcore punk band Crispy Newspaper (one of our favorite hardcore bands in Asia) was arrested because of his vocal anti-war stance. He has been in custody ever since and today will be taken to court with a good chance that he will be released but these are some anxious times for his friends and family.

Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers.

We’ll update you if we get more information.
