Legendary hardcore band Cro-Mags released their brand new EP ‘2020,’ a follow-up to their latest album ‘In The Begining,’ the first new music in two decades, released this June. 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.”
