The "21st CENTURY FUGITIVES" is a young American rock band formed in Boston MA in 2011. Their style blends the hard driving energy of punk rock with incredibly catchy melodies and killer blues/rockabilly guitar riffs. A new CD of original songs, "Regret Nothing", was just released.

LIVE: 21CF opened for DROPKICK MURPHYS at Boston's House of Blues in March to AMAZING feedback and response. Along with great reviews of the CD, they crush it LIVE and get a crowd really going! Fans of All Ages love their sound. Larger and outdoor venues are perfect for their energetic rock performances. 21CF's guitarist is a true prodigy. The band just received the "YOUNG PERFORMER OF THE YEAR" Award from Limelight Magazine.
