Only Crime To the Nines

With an all-star line-up featuring punk vets like Good Riddance vocalist Russ Rankin, All/Descendents drummer Bill Stevenson and members of Converge, Hagfish and Armstrong on guitars and bass it would be hard not to create something of punk rock significance. And that's exactly what this record is. Combining the seething fury of Black Flag, the hardcore power of Sick of It All and the politics of Michael Moore, the band's debut is so much more than a typical "side project" — it's a chance for the band members to show another side of their artistry. Be sure not to miss their set on the Eastern leg of the Warped Tour. (Fat Wreck)
