Only Crime - Punk Rock Supergroup Announce Summer 2014 UK Shows

Only Crime, featuring punk/hardcore heavyweights Russ Rankin (Good Riddance), Aaron Dalbec (Bane/Converge), Bill Stevenson (Black Flag/Descendents/All), Dan Kelly (The Frisk/Tegan And Sara) and Matt Hoffman (Modern Life Is War), released their new LP, Pursuance (their first since '07) via Rise last month and will be heading to the UK for Sonisphere Festival and a string of UK dates in July.

Only Crime is a combination of 5 veterans of the punk/hardcore scene who have pooled their collective experience to create a truly refreshing musical statement. Fusing elements of heavy rock and roll with the furious energy of punk rock from the 1970's & 80's, while adopting the creative abandon pioneered by jazz's seminal protagonists, the band's sound is heavy without being metal, melodic without sounding pop, and experimental without treading into the arcane realm of art rock. While the members of Only Crime aren't new, their music is like nothing you've heard before.

Only Crime was formed in 2002-2003, and released their first album To The Nines in 2004. After a rigorous touring schedule spanning North America, Europe and Japan, the band spent much of 2005-2006 convening at The Blasting Room Studio for intensive writing/demoing sessions as they began developing material for their second full-length album Virulence. This new album not only picked up where To The Nines left off, it utterly surpassed it. After touring extensively for Virulence, the band experienced a couple of exciting line up changes, focusing the group on distilling their approach even further.

With an energized, new lineup in place, Only Crime spent a substantial amount of time over the next few years at The Blasting Room, painstakingly crafting the next evolution of their sound. With vibrant, fresh material recorded, the band began looking for a label, and, when Portland, Oregon's Rise Records heard some early mixes, they were excited to have Only Crime join the Rise family.

With their first Rise Records release, Pursuance, the band pushes the limits of rhythmic experimentation and ambitious arrangements, while articulating moody, melodic hooks. Pursuance is the group's most coalesced, settled material to date, and fans of heavy music will love every song.

Only Crime will be touring the UK/Europe for the first time since 2010 this summer with special guests Astpai. See dates below.

UK shows:
5th July Audio, Glasgow
6th July Sonisphere Festival
7th July O2 Academy, Newcastle (w/ Dropkick Murphys)
