I give it six months, if that long, before WAT screws them like they do every other band that signs with them. In other news, Frankie is stoked about Emmure Jr. and plans to take them on their next tour with King 810 and surprise guest Fred Durst!

Can't wait till these cholo gays tour through my area so I can smash on em, and steal their band equipment.

anonymous 3/21/2015 1:04:57 PM

I don't see them claiming to be thugs at all and I think it's really cool how they dress like they're from California cause I personally listen to a lot of ''scene'' type bands but I honestly never liked dressing emo-scene props for being different! But know if you stick out to people you will catch a lot of hate. Hope you come to Texas in July!

anonymous 3/21/2015 2:53:16 PM

This band isnt even from san fransico they are a bunch of rich kids..they dont even draw locally.

anonymous 3/21/2015 2:57:50 PM

This is hella dope! Best thing to come up since bring me the horizon. I can hella tell that they're extremly influenced by black sabbath. I love metal so much more because of this band. But I hate that stupid swing arm stuff. We should all just sit in seats and watch the bands play. This is Paul btw

anonymous 3/21/2015 3:06:11 PM

To the jerk who said they are rich kids.... They MIGHT be considered rich in a 3rd world country. That's it.

All these comments are definitely from the band. No way they have that many fans.

anonymous 3/21/2015 10:21:25 PM

Do you think they know they mispelled "thought"? Or are they just legitimately retarded? Judging from their promo pic, I assume its the latter.

I'm not a member of this band but a true fan, so if you don't know them, shut the hell up you jealous ,sissy punks

anonymous 3/22/2015 8:41:14 AM

First of all its painfully clear that most of the negative comments are from the same person because they recycle half of the same empty insults over and over. So embarrassing. Also, as someone involved in Bay Area shows, I can say for a fact that Kriminals definitely draws well live and has great support from the local scene. They're also all really great guys and we're all stoked for them, congrats!

Don't portray an image if u don't live it. No matter who u are or what U do, rep it and be proud of it. Don't make up a gangster persona because U think it will help u sell records. That's not "having talent", that's not being "smart" that's just being an unconfident child, and that's who these kids really are. 10 years later you'll look back and you won't be able to say "I did this my way".

anonymous 3/22/2015 4:44:46 PM

They've only played like three shows and think there hot wasabi tryin to represent the Bay boooooo domination and kriminals and bands like this give BayAreahardcore/metal scene a bad rap so many good solid bands have come from the bay and put staples on heavy music we ain't all new jack wannabe gangsters some of us Actually know the roots and show up evey weekend.

anonymous 3/23/2015 12:11:32 AM

And just like that, WAT quickly races Victory to see who can sign the shittiest bands quicker. Here's a funny thing, WAT is currently holding a battle of the bands. They're asking promoters to give them $1K up front (yes, giving WAT the money) then whatever is made after is the promoters. So, now we know how they fund their shit show.
