Hardcore Punk legends Cro-Mags have just signed with Victory Records (and Arising Empire Records in Europe) to release a three track EP ‘Don’t Give In’. Their first release since the ‘Revenge’ album’ in 2000! They head out on tour supporting the Misfits on several shows in the USA before heading to Europe for some headline shows. Dates here and you can find out more information about the bands history here.
Three brutal tracks with the punishing rhythm section providing the perfect background for the guitars to battle furiously for victory! My colleague Sty’s opinion ‘It’s got a very mid 80’s element to it musically. I can hear D.R.I, Exodus and Testament!‘ Whilst I thought it positively feral with a Halloween vibe, something like October 31 meeting GG Allin in hell!
The title track might advise Don’t Give In? In this case I say do give in! Give in to temptation and give it a listen, the beat might Drag You Under but it’s your choice, because you’re No One’s Victim!!
