SICK OF IT ALL To Release “When The Smoke Clears” Celebrating Their 30 Year Anniversary

The year 2016 marks the 30th anniversary of the legendary New York Hardcore band SICK OF IT ALL. In order to celebrate this special occasion SICK OF IT ALL are releasing “When The Smoke Clears” on November 4th, 2016. The band didn’t just record five brand new tracks in their unique and classic old school style, but they also dug deep in their photo archives and pulled up rare photos as well as iconic shots from their past and present. Everything was compiled for a strictly limited, luxurious 60 page coffee table Artbook that is wrapped in fake leather and that comes with personal liner notes from people such as Davey Havok (AFI), Dennis Lyxzén (Refused), Chuck Ragan (Hot Water Music), Arthur Smilios (Gorilla Biscuits) and Matt Kelly (Dropkick Murphys).

SICK IF IT ALL already toured Europe three times this year including summer festivals such Hellfest (F), Punk Rock Holiday (SI), Rocco Del Schlacko (DE), Ieper (BE) or Ruhrpott Rodeo (DE). In October they will come back for another two weeks prior to the release of “When The Smoke Clears”. In January of 2017 they are heading to Australia for five shows with Refused.
