CRO-MAGS – start pre-orders!

Last year, CRO-MAGS released their first album in twenty years with the critically-acclaimed »In The Beginning« and closed this period of international turmoil and disease with the released 6-song EP, »2020«, available worldwide digitally.

Today, CROMAGS launched the physical pre-orders for »2020« – the soundtrack to one of the most turbulent years on record and available as a limited special coloured 3-piece 7″ vinyl box as well as on limited coloured 10″ vinyl and CD

Available on the 9th of April 2021! Streaming, purchase and save your vinyl/CD copies of the new EP »2020« now: https://Cro-Mags.lnk.to/2020

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.”
