Song Of The Week: 2/22/15

Song: "What I'd Give Up"

Artist: The Classic Crime

Album: "Phoenix"

Year: 2012

"What I'd Give Up" is a song that appears to be about how the vocalist would give up everything to be with the girl he loves, including giving up what he loves most, his band, playing live, touring and making music. That is how much she means to him and how much he wants his world to revolve around hers. The Classic Crime formed as a band back in 2004, hailing from Seattle, Washington. In 2006, the band signed with Christian punk label Tooth & Nail Records and released their debut album, "Albatross". With the lead single "The Coldest Heart", "Albatross" had the highest debut sales in the history of Tooth & Nail Records. In 2007, the band released the all acoustic EP, "Seattle Sessions". 2008 saw the band release "The Silver Chord". Featuring the singles "Abracadaver", "5805" and "Grave Digging", this album proved a heavier and darker effort from The Classic Crime". In 2010, "Vagabonds" was released featuring the singles "Four Chords", "Solar Powered Life" and "A Perfect Voice". By 2012, The Classic Crime was no longer on the Tooth & Nail roster so with the assistance of a Kickstarter fundraising project, the band released "Phoenix", featuring the lead single "Beautiful Darkside". Due to their success using the Kickstarter fund, the band once again decided to go that route with funding their next effort, "What Was Done, Vol. 1: A Decade Revisited". This album featured acoustic and re-tooled efforts of the band's songs spanning their entire catalogue, including two bonus tracks, "Selfish" and "Where Did You Go". Being that this album came out in late 2014, currently there is no news of The Classic Crime coming out with a proper release with all new material. I wouldn't be surprised if new material didn't surface sooner rather than later. The band has established quite the "do it yourself" work ethic, funding their projects and working with distributors with a very hands on approach. Though labeled Christian punk, the band does not agree with that label, as not all band members believe in the same things. They do believe in individual religious freedom and respect other's beliefs. I wouldn't call them "punk" either, maybe hints of pop punk. To me, they have a lot in common with their former label mates Anberlin when it comes to musical style.
