The Cro-Mags Release “From the Grave” EP

The Cro-Mags: From the GraveThe Cro-Mags have returned with their second EP of the year. From the Grave is a three-song followup to Don’t Give In, which was the first time in two decades that the group released new music.

The band, led by bassist/vocalist Harley Flanagan, tapped Motörhead guitarist Phil Campbell to play lead and slide guitar on the album’s title track. The collaboration came to him in a dream.

“Lemmy [Kilmister, Motörhead] 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,” Flanagan says. “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.”

From the Grave is available now on vinyl and as a digital download (iTunes and Amazon MP3).
