Biography




Ripface Invasion is a coalition of veteran musicians from the New Jersey punk/hardcore/metal scene from over the past 20 years.

Ripface Invasion is a hardcore band that takes on a late eighties early nineties New York hardcore sound. They draw influence from bands like Leeway, the Cro-Mags, and Sick of it All. They blend it with hints of late 80's thrash metal, and mid nineties New Jersey beat down styled hardcore. Also, they throw in some punk rock influence from bands like The Misfits and The Ramones. The result is a well rounded original sound, that defies genres and creates it own style of hardcore, that sounds like no other band out there. It's brutal, fast, and full of energy. The passion of its members is obvious, and comes through loud and clear when they take the stage and perform live.

Ripface Invasion was formed in December of 2010 by vocalist Anthony (Red) Paladino. Red is the founder and an active member of the Earache Records 1997 new chapter recording artist IDK, since their creation in 1990. The rest of the Ripface Invasion line up consists of original E-town Concrete guitarist Ken Pescatore. He performed and wrote the music on E-Town Concrete's first two albums on Resurrection AD Records. He is also the founding member of Arson, a metal outfit that signed to Resurrection AD Records. The bass guitar duties are held by Tom Conti, who has played along side Red in IDK since 1995. Ripface's drum basher is Dan Lockhart, who is a longtime veteran hardcore drummer. He has played in acts such as One 4 One and A Moment's Peace. Finally, on second guitar is Ant Lefty. He has followed all of the above bands and grew up through the Staten Island, NY hardcore scene.
