Cro-Mags Premiere “Between Wars” Music Video

Cro-Mags have premiered a new video for their song “Between Wars.“ This track is from the band’s latest album “In The Beginning.“

Harley Flangan commented:

“This song was a lot of fun to work on as it gave me a chance to do something completely different. I recorded the song with just bass and drums, followed by all the arpeggiated guitar parts, and eventually I added the cellos and did Hungarian-style throat singing. I was inspired to add the cellos when I first heard Carlos “Lamont” Cooper playing in the NYC subway where he plays to make a living. Turns out he’s an ex-gangbanger from NJ 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.”

In other news, Flanagan will also be starring opposite Michael Imperioli in a new film called “Between Wars.” That movie was directed by Tom Phillips and the following description was shared:

“’Between Wars’ takes an intimate look at the struggle of re-entering civilian life post combat. It follows Veteran Marine Franny Malloy of the Bronx as he struggles with integrating himself back into civilian life post combat in Afghanistan.”

A video of Flanagan, Imperoli, and Philips discussing the movie and the newly released music video can be found below:

Cro-Mags Premiere “From The Grave” Music Video

Cro-Mags have premiered a new video for their song “From The Grave.” This track features Motörhead guitarist Phil Campbell and it will appear on the band’s new album “In The Beginning,” which is set to be released on June 19.

Harley Flanagan commented:

“The idea for the video is that I’m rising from the grave and going on a mission…like I came back from the dead to become the Grim Reaper himself. I think anybody who knows the history of this band and of my life will get it. It starts off at Woodlawn Cemetery in the Bronx, where I will be buried with my family and in-laws. In the opening shot, the grave I’m in front of is actually my mother’s.”

He also added:

“Phil is one of my favorite guitarists of all time and I still can’t believe I have him playing on one of my songs! I am so honored. The footage of Phil was shot by his son Todd Campbell at his recording studio in Wales, UK.”

Cro-Mags Premiere “No One’s Victim” Video

Cro-Mags Premiere New Song “From The Grave” Feat. Phil Campbell (Motörhead)

Harley Flanagan’s Cro-Mags have shared the title track of their new EP “From The Grave” (out December 6). The song features Motörhead guitarist Phil Campbell and it can be streamed below:

Flanagan commented:

“Lemmy came to me in a dream and said ‘Take it back mate, it’s yours, you started it’ [referring to the band’s name]. I woke up and I knew what had to be done, so I did it. And I figured since Lemmy gave me my marching orders, I should get his guitarist to play on a new track. Phil immediately said yes and that is why it’s called ‘From The Grave,’ and I’m so honored to have him on this song.

I first met Phil when we toured with Motörhead on the Orgasmatron tour. He is one of my favorite guitarists of all time and I still can’t believe I have him playing on one of my songs. Thank you Phil and thank you Lemmy for making this all happen!”

Campbell added:

“It was a great surprise to hear from Harley after so many years. We hung out a lot during the tour in the eighties. When I heard the track he wanted me to do, I just had to do it. Listen for yourselves!”
