About:

Crime in Stereo is a melodic hardcore act from Long Island garnering comparisons to Brand New, Lifetime, Strike Anywhere and Jawbreaker. The band's first official release was a split with fellow New York hardcore stalwarts Kill Your Idols in late 2003 on Blackout! / Brightside Records. The band's debut full–length, Explosives and the Will to Use Them, followed several months later in early 2004. After a signing with the Dexter Holland–owned Nitro Records, the band released the aptly titled The Contract EP in 2005 on Blackout! / Brightside after much delay. A 3–song teaser EP entitled Fuel.Transit.Sleep. was released later that year, preceding the 2006 release of The Troubled Stateside, their first full–length for Nitro. The band signed to Bridge Nine Records the next year and issued their acclaimed third LP, Crime in Stereo Is Dead. A rarities set, Selective Wreckage, followed in 2008. In the summer and fall of 2009, the band returned to producer Mike Sapone's basement studio to track their fourth full–length, I Was Trying to Describe You to Someone, and set it for an early 2010 release.
