Sick Of It All re-records songs for new album

Official press release: 2011 marks the 25th anniversary of New York's finest hardcore export Sick Of It All. Since 1986 the band has been thrashing out classic hardcore anthems and touring the globe without ever taking much of a break. To further celebrate this anniversary, Sick Of It All will release Nonstop, a compilation of re-recorded classics, via Century Media Records on November 1st (North America) / October 31st (Europe). After the release of the highly acclaimed Based On A True Story (2010), Sick Of It All took a short break from their relentless touring schedule to record Nonstop at Antfarm Studios with Tue Madsen. Drummer Armand Majidi commends the Danish producer, who also worked with them on Death To Tyrants and Based On A True Story: "This whole thing is happening partially because of working with Tue Madsen - the man who has finally made Sick Of It All sound the way we should in the studio." The band further comments on Nonstop: "It was a fun recording session, and a relatively easy one because we're so used to playing so many of these songs live. They're like second nature. Most of these songs make their way into our live sets all the time, so they're current - they reach new ears and are constantly refreshed by their exposure to a brand new audience. It's not like they had to be dusted off. We changed tempos mostly and some of the arrangements, but we didn't want to do anything too drastic. We wanted to keep most of the songs true to the originals, but with a more powerful sound that we feel makes them all they can be." Nonstop track list: 01. Clobberin' Time 02. Injustice System! 03. Sanctuary 04. Scratch The Surface 05. Us Vs. Them 06. The Deal 07. Just Look Around 08. Ratpack 09. World Full Of Hate 10. Pushed Too Far 11. GI Joe Headstomp 12. Never Measure Up 13. Chip Away 14. Busted 15. Locomotive 16. My Life 17. Friends Like You 18. Relentless 19. No Labels 20. Built To Last

At least they didn't fck with "Yours Truly"! That album is near-perfect and is easily my favorite album of theirs!

Based On A True Story was surprisingly good.

Yours Truly? Seriously? That's like their only album that isn't very good. Death To Tyrants and Based On A True Story are both solid though.

Furiously awaiting the re-recorded versions of Relentless and World Full of Hate. This album is gonna rule!
