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), have released a new music video for “Life Was Fair”, a track off “Pursuance”, the band’s upcoming full-length for Rise Records.The LP is their first since 2007.

“Pursuance” is now available for pre-order via Merchnow and iTunes.

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.

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.
