The Silver Cord

Second albums will write a band's destiny, forever, in stone. Most will crumble under the pressure, and prove that only a select few become memorable. Only the special will do something that will etch themselves forever into the hearts of many- and The Classic Crime would not have it any other way. Having once again employed the services of producer Michael "Elvis" Baskette (Incubus, Story of the Year, Chevelle) for "The Silver Cord," he has repeated his success in delivering a sound that's raw, enigmatic, yet contemporary in its punch. The band took extra pains to record as they would have fifteen years ago, without the vocal tuning, quantizing, or sampling of today's rock records, completely performed by the band as they would play it live, many times in single takes during the recording process.

Quick Bio

The Classic Crime isn't limited to scenes, trends or even genres -- at least not to anything more specifically than "rock" (like say U2 or the Foo Fighters). They may hail from the rich music scene of Seattle, but they aren't hipsters and they don't play grunge. With giant infectious melodies and occasional dalliances with prog-math and a newfound sense of whimsy, The Classic Crime is for everybody.
