Cro-Mags are back

Cro-Mags, fronted by bassist Harley Flanagan, have a new single coming via Victory Records -- it's the first new music in 20 years from the hardcore pioneers. Titled Don't Give In, the 3-song EP will be available on limited press vinyl on August 2.


"I had a lot of inspiration writing these songs; I experienced a lot of loss-- the loss of friends, by suicide, cancer, depression, mortality and ultimately the beauty of life; and the need to fight for it, for every breathe,” Harley Flanagan said in a recent interview with Revolver. “We all fight our battles, and they are different, but none of us are unique in the fact that we have to fight, and often alone. In that way we all have something in common.


“I feel like I crashed and burned enough times and managed to rise back up. But that is life; you have to fight for what you want, and you also have to know how temporary it all is. This is a lot of what inspired these songs."


Besides Flanagan, the new materia features Gabby Abularach (Gil Evans Orchestra and also played on Cro-Mags’ Alpha Omega and Near Death Experience, Rocky George (formerly of Suicidal Tendencies and Fishbone and on Revenge, and Gary "GMan" Sullivan (the B-52's, Berny Worrel of Parliament Funkadelic, TM Stevens.
