Published Sep 02, 2016In light of their 30th anniversary celebrations, veteran NYHC crew Sick of It All have announced they're putting out a new EP. The band's When the Smoke Clears materializes November 4 via Century Media.
The record will be the first release from the band since 2015's two-song "Hardcore Equals Freedom" / "DNC" 7-inch. A tracklisting has yet to be revealed, but the collection will include five new songs from the long-running lineup of vocalist Lou Koller, guitarist Pete Koller, bassist Craig Setari, and drummer Armand Majidi.
Additionally, the EP will be launched alongside a 60-page, faux leather-bound coffee table book featuring photos from throughout the group's career. Liner notes are also being contributed by punk pals including Davey Havok (AFI), Dennis Lyxzén (Refused), Chuck Ragan (Hot Water Music), Arthur Smilios (Gorilla Biscuits) and Matt Kelly (Dropkick Murphys).
Sick of It All have a number of 30th anniversary tour dates coming up across the U.S. and Europe. The band hit Montreal and Toronto back in May. You'll find their forthcoming show schedule over here.
Despite the upcoming EP release, Sick of It All have not issued a proper full-length since 2014's The Last Act of Defiance.
