Cro-Mags release title track

by Metal Jacket
Cro-Mags

Earlier this year, CRO-MAGS released their first album in twenty years with the critically-acclaimed »In The Beginning«.

To close out this year of international turmoil and disease, the band announces the 6-song EP, »2020«, available worldwide digitally on December 11th. The band also releases the eponymous track ‘2020  – venting all the frustration and rage, CRO-MAGS style, at the unprecedented chaos of this year.

The record itself is unintentionally 20 minutes and 20 seconds, and plays out more like a time-capsule look into the dumpster fire known as the year 2020. 

CRO-MAGS founder Harley Flanagan explains, “Just by coincidence we recorded 20 minutes and 16 seconds of music, so we simply added a few seconds of real-world chaos. The album cover is meant to look like a calendar – 7 squares across, with one picture from 2020 per day. Inside the booklet there are 12 pictures, one for each month of 2020; and the back is a shot of something I have never seen before in my life – a totally empty New York City. Corona Virus, quarantine, empty streets, brutality, burning buildings, violence and destruction: 2020 is a year none of us will ever forget.”

Filmed on March 15thCRO-MAGS were one of the first musical acts to deliver a full live-stream set just as a nationwide lockdown fell upon the United States, now known as the infamous “The Quarantine Show.”

»2020« tracklist:
1 – Age Of Quarantine
2 – 2020
3 – Life On Earth
4 – Violence and Destruction
