Biography

Seattle, United States

The Classic Crime is a Seattle-based alternative rock band. They released their Tooth & Nail debut album, ‘Albatross’, in 2006. It marked the fastest first-week sales for a new artist in the history of T&N. The band members are Matt MacDonald (vocals), Justin DuQue (guitar), Robert “Cheeze” Negrin (guitar), Alan Clark (bass), and Paul “Skip” Erickson (drums).

While touring in support of their full-length album Albatross, the band created the Acoustic EP: Seattle Sessions, which was simply a compilation of songs they created while on the road.

Their next album, ‘The Silver Cord’, was released on July 22, 2008. With the album being based on the realities of life and death, it signals a move into an alternative genre for TCC. Exactly 5805 copies of ‘The Silver Cord’ were sold in the first week. 5805 is a significant number because it is a song title on the album and it is the address of the house where the band formed and began to break out.

In 2010, ‘Vagabonds’ was released.

    Hij is pas 1 jaar uit, hoe snel denk je/ wil je/ hoop je dat het gaat ouwe? Niemand kent die fucking band, en iedereen die er al naar luistert doet dat vast niet vaak en checkt ook vast niet elke dag of "ze" al weer een nieuw album uit hebben gebracht...

    Damn, I wish I discovered this band earlier. Phoenix is a masterpiece, and the other albums ain't bad at all.
