Thursday, September 3, 2020 7:54 AM PT


Cro-Mags have released a new music video for "Between Wars," an instrumental track from the group's latest album, In The Beginning. The new clip can be viewed below.

The song also reflects the name of forthcoming independent film, Between Wars, which stars Cro-Mags frontman Harley Flanaganp along with actor Michael Imperioli, best know for The Sopranos and Goodfellas.

"This song was a lot of fun to work on as it gave me a chance to do something completely different," says Flanagan. "I recorded the song with just bass and drums, followed by all the arpeggiated guitar parts, and eventually I added the cellos and did Mongolian-style throat singing. I was inspired to add the cellos when I first heard Carlos 'Lamont' Cooper playing in the New York City subway where he plays to make a living. Turns out he's an ex-gangbanger from New Jersey who has had a hard life, and although we have had very different experiences, we have a lot of things in common; PTSD will do that."
