I'm incredibly excited to share a brand new track from The Classic Crime...well, a old song revisited anyways. "The Coldest Heart" first appeared on the band's debut album, Albatross, and now they've revisited it for What Was Done Vol I, a collection of revisited and acoustic songs from the band's incredible collection of songs over the past decade. If you liked the song, you can pre-order the album here - What Was Done Vol. I comes out on October 27th via Bad Christian. Hit the replies to check out "The Coldest Heart".
The Classic Crime will release What Was Done, Vol. 1: A Decade Revisited on October 27th - you can pre-order it. The album features a mix of both acoustic and rearranged versions of songs.
