EDITORS’ NOTES

To celebrate their first decade together, the Classic Crime offers revised versions of standout tunes from their first four albums (with emphasis on their 2006 debut LP Albatross). The lyric intelligence and melodic strength that have characterized these Seattle indie rockers from the start comes through in stripped-down treatments of “You and Me Both,” “Who Needs Air,” “Beautiful Darkside” and other favorites. Matt MacDonald’s clear-toned vocals capture the band’s distinctive mix of angst, introspection and faith. New songs “Selfish” and “Where Did You Go” add to the sense that What Was Done is a statement of artistic renewal.

About The Classic Crime

Seattle rock quartet the Classic Crime feature vocalist Matt MacDonald, drummer Paul Erickson, bassist Alan Clark, and guitarists Justin Duque and Robbie Negin. First meeting in high school, all but Negrin were playing together in the band Orizon before the addition of said fifth member prompted a name change. Time was spent on the road in early 2006 with both Mest and Tooth & Nail labelmates Anberlin and Emery, all of which led up to the May release of the band's debut album, Albatross. 2007 saw the release of an acoustic EP, Seattle Sessions, while the group returned to the studio and set to work writing and recording their second album. ~ Corey Apar
