The event is free and will give fans the opportunity to speak with this incredibly interesting man about not only his book, but his life in the hardcore music scene, growing up on the streets of New York City, what it's like to have competed in IRONMAN competitions around the world and so much more. For more on The Last Bookstore and about the event, please visit There is also a Facebook event page, here. John is truly one of the most captivating people that I have had a pleasure of speaking with and I would love for you to have the same chance to learn more about him! 


To Pre-Order

New York City Hardcore legend, John Joseph, frontman of the Cro-Mags, has announced the release of the second edition of his autobiography, The Evolution of a Cro-Magnon. The new edition will be released April 4th, 2017 and will feature a new forward, additional chapters, and photographs from John's personal collection.
Pre Order bundles, including a signed copy of the book and limited lithograph prints of the book cover (limited to 250), are available at Proceeds from the premium bundle benefit the Children's Tumor Foundation. The Children's Tumor Foundation's mission is to drive research, expand knowledge and advance care for those diagnosed with Neurofibromatosis. For more information on John's work with CTF, please visit:

In his autobiography, John recounts his hard times and spiritual redemption. A traumatic childhood in foster homes was just the beginning of John's evolution. Before fronting one of the most important bands in the underground punk scene, the Cro-Mags, as well as Bloodclot, John faced homelessness, addiction, betrayal and insanity. Still, even his success couldn't save him from a relapse that set him back to square one - rock bottom. The book is a raw and unapologetic autobiography about his life. Consider yourself warned. The events mentioned may or may not coincide with your life but the symptoms and remedies would surely do. The placid demonstration of truth presents an unmasked picture of his life.
On the announcement of the re-release of his book, John shared "A lot of stuff has happened since we released the book in 2007. I've updated information, added a couple of chapters and photos, but the message stays the same. I want to show others that no matter what they are going through in life, they have to never quit and never surrender. If you are willing to fight through it, you can get through anything."

John spends time mentoring at-risk and incarcerated youths & adults, feeding the homeless and participating in charitable organizations that impact the streets he grew up on in New York City. He also has many other projects in the works including books, films and TV projects. Additionally, he is a competitive Ironman triathlete, having participated in 8 events including last year's KONA World Championship. He's replaced the Iron Bars of the prison system with the Ironman Triathlon as a way to constantly challenge himself physically, mentally and spiritually. John has also written another book, "Meat is For Pussies," which is an in-your-face look at guys' health which has become an underground success and has helped thousands of men change their bad eating habits and lifestyles.

Cro-Mags 1986 Album The Age of Quarrel 

Concert Review: Pierce the Veil Play A Sold Out Last Night of Tour

Staff Writer/Photographer- Hannah Kelly

The finale of Pierce The Veil’s Rest In Space Tour originally featuring Crown The Empire and Falling In Reverse, came to Tucson, Arizona for one last sold out show and it was quite a night to remember. Within the last few dates of their most recent touring cycle, Falling In Reverse dropped off the stacked tour line up for “unforeseen circumstances” as stated on the band's official Facebook page.

After the last minute announcement that Falling In Reverse would be absent from the show in Tucson, local hardcore band, Cons, stepped up to the plate to open up the show. Cons were very passionate and energetic through their set. Lead singer, Joshua, was incredibly interactive with the crowd. He could continuously be found climbing onto the barricade that separated the stage from the crowd and singing into the faces of the many Pierce The Veil fans that filled the room.

Although they had a different vibe than the other two bands on the ticket, the Tucson locals finished their set with the guarantee of a new flock of fans following their music and coming out to their shows.

Next to hit the stage was Crown The Empire. The four piece band hailing Dallas, Texas was one of the three bands that were on the original tour ticket. The band drew a large crowd of their dedicated fan base to the show, which became evident as soon as the first note of their opening song, “Zero”, was played.

Crown The Empire had the entire room moving and screaming along to their songs through the entire set the performed that night. With about two songs left in their portion of the show, lead singer, Andrew 'Andy Leo,' let the crowd know about the bands sold out show policy/tradition. He told the room that if they were playing a sold out show, and there was a bar insight in the room, then someone in the crowd had to crowd surf a shot to the stage before they finished playing. Of course right after he announced this, the small bar in the venue was flooded with fans trying to buy a shot to get to the band.

About halfway through the song after Andy Leo had announced this sold out show rule, two shots found their way up to the band. Andy Leo and bassist Hayden Tree intertwined their arms and knocked back the shots they had been given. Of course, the sold out crowd responded with thundering applause. The band finished their set and walked off the stage, but almost immediately Andy Leo rushed back onto the stage to yell “smoke weed everyday” into the microphone before leaving the stage for the last time on the tour.

Crown The Empire left the stage, and the room immediately got tighter, fans pushed forward into the crowd in anticipation for the long awaited set of Pierce The Veil.

Although the band is often in Arizona playing sold out shows, they haven’t paid a visit to Tucson since their world tour with Sleeping With Sirens in 2014, so it’s needless to say the fans in southern Arizona were more than excited to have them back. This show was high anticipated for all Pierce The Veil fans in Arizona though; they sold out the venue two weeks prior to the event.

Soon after Crown The Empire left the small stage at Club XS that night, the Pierce The Veil crew dropped a white curtain over the stage. Right before their set began, their band name was projected onto the curtain.

Soon enough, the lights in the venue went down, and a red cartoon rocket ship was being shown on the curtain, as the band got closer and closer to taking the stage, the animation on the stage began to move faster and then everything went dark as the crew pulled the curtain down from in front of the stage. Fans went crazy as the band walked out onto the stage to the intro of the song “Dive In” which is the first track on their most recent album, “Misadventures.”

A white light shone from behind lead singer, Vic Fuentes, and he began singing the first song. The band played through their opening song and Vic stepped up to welcome everyone to the Rest In Space Tour, and then led into their second song of the night, “Caraphernelia”, which is an older hit off their album Selfish Machines.

After the finished, Vic stepped up to the microphone again to tell everyone in attendance that their next song was a fast one and that they would not start playing it until they saw a circle pit form. As soon as they saw one break out in the middle of the crowd, the song began.

They played several more songs before taking a one song acoustic break. Vic announced that bassist Jaime Preciado would be doing something he had never done before and play piano on tour. This led the band into the acoustic rendition of “Stay Away From My Friends.”

After this short break, they got right back into the fast paced music that they’re known for. Three songs after their acoustic break, the band walked off the stage, claiming that they were done playing for the night. The crowd went nuts for a minute after the left, chanting “Pierce The Veil” over and over again until the band came back onto the stage for two more songs. They finished out the night with one of their latest singles, “Circles” and their hit song, “King For a Day.” Vic thanked everyone for coming out to the last night of tour and said that they would see everyone soon!

As per usual, Pierce The Veil put on an amazing song, with non-stop energy. Their fans are some of the most dedicated out there and they will no doubt be patiently waiting until Pierce The Veil makes their return to Arizona once again.

The Vans Warped Tour has always been a place of music discovery and this year is no exception - the Full Sail Stage has up and comers like Boston ManorCreeperThe Gospel YouthKnocked LooseMovements, and Trophy Eyes positioned to break this summer.
Overall, the tour continues to offer something for every fan, showcasing the best in pop punk, rock, hard core, hip-hop, dance and indie.
The Vans Warped Tour is the largest traveling music festival in the United States, and the longest-running touring music festival in North America. Originally conceived by founder Kevin Lyman in 1995 as an eclectic alternative rock festival, with a focus on punk rock, over the years the tour has grown to include a multitude of genres, including metal, hip hop, reggae, pop and more. It remains one of the best tours to attend to discover emerging acts, to learn more about wonderful non-profits and companies who are working to make a positive impact on the world that surround them, and to meet like-minded friends.
"As we enter our 23rd year on the road, continuing our mission of music, philanthropy and education is what I look forward to most.  The Vans Warped Tour is not for all, but every summer I look forward to seeing those fans who do chose to come and engage and be a positive force in our community." - Kevin Lyman

Fans can see their favorite bands as well as become educated on these causes and how they can help.
Sierra Lyman comments, "Music has inspired change and social change has inspired music. Since its inception the Vans Warped Tour created a place where fans are not only inspired by their favorite artists, but also inspired to work with a cause they care about. This is pushed even further by opening up musicians to causes they never even knew about. By creating this community of nonprofits we are able to connect fans with their favorite musicians and also inspire some good in the world."
The Entertainment Institute will return to the 2017 tour as well, hosting educational workshops and Q+A's hosted by the industry's most successful writers, artists, and photographers. A full listing of the guru's hosting each workshop is available at
