CRIME IN STEREO IS BACK! NEW ALBUM IN 13 YEARS "HOUSE & TRANCE" OUT 10/27!

Updated: Mar 7




After 13 long years, Long Island punk legends Crime In Stereo are finally releasing new music. Their upcoming full-length House & Trance is set for release on 27th October 2023 on Pure Noise Records.


Lead single "Hypernormalisation" analyses the apathy of people in the face of their imminent demise,


"The wildfires gathered themselves together, advancing enough petition signatures to force a vote on rerouting subterranean magma ducts directly into any east/west commuter corridors. Cities of water rushed in from the sea only to circle the neighbourhood for hours, stymied by alternate side parking."


The additional streaming song, "Books Cannot Be Killed By Fire" touches on the issue where Republicans attempt to whitewash American history and censor its truthS.

Having two members that are accomplished producers (Brett Romnes and Gary Cioni), House & Trance is completely self-produced. It flows so well from their previous work that it makes the upcoming fifth full-length a natural step for Crime In Stereo.


The songs are riddled with the hardships of living in modern times both on a musical and lyrical level. The effects of late-stage capitalism and neoliberalism, the encroaching dominance of fascism within the US political system, the increasing alienation and isolation that comes from the purposeful eradication of community by corporate politics - the songs don't just reflect on these issues, they also reflect on the massive human collateral damage that will result from these actions.


While the album is a symbol of the ongoing problems in the world right now, it continues to symbolize on a more personal level too, like Crime In Stereo songs always have. Towards the end of the album's production, Dunne had to be rushed in from a session for emergency surgery after developing a septic infection from that almost killed him.


The band's brush with mortality seeps into these songs, which often feel like they're on the verge of a world-ending implosion. They also discuss other catastrophes and human ills, including the billionaire mindset.


"It’s so exhausting being a reasonable human being in 2023 in the United States of America. It’s exhausting looking around and being like, 'What’s the fucking matter with you people?'. I'm not taking ludicrous positions on extreme political outlooks. It's just like, 'Hey, can you stop tearing those babies away from their parents and putting them in cages?' Is that an outlandish position to take? Can people have healthcare? Can people not get shot in school or in church or at the goddamn mall or in a movie theater? But you say things like that and then other people are like, 'Oh, you're taking a political position.' It's so fucking insulting on a human level." - Vocalist Kristian Hallbert


House & Trance continues the band's story, while also being born from bleakness, hopelessness and a failing society. Yet, it offers a significant sense of hope.
