Deez Nuts was formed in 2007 by singer JJ Peters after breakup of I Killed The Prom Queen. In their music, they mixing rap with hardcore. Debut album Stay True from 2008 and concerts with The Amity Affliction and Silverstein quickly brought them popularity in Australia, where they are from. Following records This One’s For You and Bout It made Deez Nuts popular also at other world continents. In July at Rock for People they will promote their latest album Binge & Purgatory (out on April 7th).

After long 18 years, to the festival will return the legend of French punk and hardcore music, Tagada Jones. The group, which was founded in 1993 in Rennes, has already released 10 albums and played more than 1,800 concerts in over 25 countries. Among their influences you can include The Exploited, The Ramones, Bad Religion, Suicidal Tendencies and also native legends such as Parabellum, Les Sheriff or Bérurier Noir.

Canadian hardcore band Comeback Kid was formed in 2000, originally as a side project of Andrew Neufeld and Jeremy Hiebert, agile musicians from quite varied music scenes in Winnipeg. They’ve ripped through North and South America, Europe and Asia with hundreds of concerts, and shared the stage with legends and newcomers to the genre, including Madball, Sick Of It All, Four Year Strong, A Wilhelm Scream, Parkway Drive or Bleeding Through. Up to date they’ve released five studio albums and one live DVD.

Eskimo Callboy are the six-pieces band, who skillfully move between metal, hardcore and electronics, got together seven years ago in Castrop-Rauxel in Germany’s Ruhr region. They’ve released three studio albums and enjoyed success in Europe, the USA, China and Russia, with a quite extraordinary hero status in Japan.

Scandinavian countries are the most fertile breeding ground for all possible offshoots of metal and hardcore. Swedish band Imminence was formed in 2010 and over the years has become one of the most promising acts with a diverse sound and universe. Their new album, This Is Goodbye, which will be released on March 31st, perfectly illustrates the breadth of their talent, from nu/emo reminiscence through metalcore riffs, alternative influences and anthemic choruses.

Another new band in line up of Rock for People is Novelists. French band was formed in April 2013 and almost immediately, they released a debut single, Twenty Years. Its fresh and unique sound was something the world of metal hadn’t counted on. Thanks to self-discipline, energy and hard work, they’ve reached a warm welcome from fans of metal and hardcore and pros in the business.
