“But, what makes it punk?” Founder JT Habersaat gnashes his teeth every time the question is posed to him. Maybe because it’s fast-paced and uncompromising, aggressive yet absurdist, heartfelt expression laced with dick jokes, or because the tour seems to pick up strays—an 80s-era metal head here, a Volcom-sponsored front-man there, a comedy impresario and unlikely landlord riding shotgun—or, most likely, because the members of the Altercation Punk Comedy Tour don’t really give a damn what you think. Habersaat’s killed it while supporting Doug Stanhope and Henry Rollins, but admittedly been bested in a backstage cred war by Brian Posehn. He’s made emo kids cry while performing on the Vans Warped Tour, acted opposite Ron Jeremy in the Troma splatterfest 'Citizen Toxie' and appeared on Comedy Central. 2013 finds him getting in the van to hit stages coast to coast once more, this time in support of a debut album on Grammy-winning imprint Stand Up! Records dubbed 'Hostile Corporate Takeover' and boasting art from Raymond Pettibon. In other words, watch your cred back, Posehn."
