don’t believe the hype
The Cryptics blend of melody & classic punk rock influence has allowed them to create their own channel of individuality. Since 2008, this New Hampshire based trio has been making their mark. Spanning from a more abrasive sound in earlier years to a more structured tone, the band has set itself in a solid foundation. On March 1st, 2012 the “Face The Day” 7” EP was co-released on P.I.G. Records & Overdose On Records, and marks the group’s first release in nearly 3 years! It is presented as a pre-cursor to a long-awaited full-length LP that is currently in the works. In spring ‘12, the bandl embarked on a 5-week, 36-show national tour in support of this EP. This 3-piece is more active than ever & will continue to strike pavement all over with no exception. The new EP reflects the bands musical growth & remains a seed planted for what’s ahead. Come aboard & stay tuned!
