Seattle rockers The Classic Crime have finally announced their new album titled “How To Be Human,” that will be releasing April 28 via BC Music. Five years since the critically acclaimed LP “Phoenix” the band is back to doing what they do best. The album actually began as a Kickstarter that saw over 2,500 backers raising just under $100,000, tripling their initial goal of $30,000.
On the record, listeners will find 12 tracks of the indie variety. Assisting on the album will be industry veteran, producer Michael "Elvis" Baskette. The band promises that this album will be their most mature record out of their extensive repertoire.
Frontman Matt MacDonald explains his feelings on the new album saying, "Control and comfort will always reel us back in some. . .But I like to cast out as far as I can to see if we can catch something good."
With that explanation, we’re sure this album will give fans everything they didn’t know they wanted, and we here at Headrush TV are very excited. Album pre-orders start March 20th via PledgeMusic !
Don’t forget that the band has also announced their April/May U.S. tour! Be sure to check out below for dates! For more information as well as music, check out the band’s website, Spotify, and Pandora!
