Cro-Mags Cap Off the Year with New '2020' EP
Hardcore heroes Cro-Mags recently gave us their first new album in 20 years with In the Beginning. Now they are set to already follow that up with a new mini-release.

On December 11, Harley Flanagan and co. will digitally release 2020 — a new six-track EP. Right now, you can hear its "2020" title track.

According to a press release, the EP is "venting all the frustration and rage, Cro-Mags style, at the unprecedented chaos of this year." Adding even more meaning to that record title, the EP is just 20 minutes and 20 seconds long.

In a statement, Flanagan explained, "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. Corona Virus, quarantine, empty streets, brutality, burning buildings, violence and destruction: 2020 is a year none of us will ever forget."

Hear "2020" below.
