CRO-MAGS - Open Physical Pre-Orders For "2020" EP via Arising Empire

Last year, CRO-MAGS released their first album in twenty years with the critically-acclaimed »In The Beginning« and closed this period of international turmoil and disease with the released 6-song EP, »2020«, available worldwide digitally.

Today, CRO-MAGS launched the physical pre-orders for »2020« - the soundtrack to one of the most turbulent years on record and available as a limited special coloured 3-piece 7" vinyl box as well as on limited coloured 10" vinyl and CD - Available on the 9th of April 2021 - up for pre-order now at!

The record itself is unintentionally 20 minutes and 20 seconds, and plays out more like a time-capsule look into the dumpster fire known as the year 2020. CRO-MAGS founder Harley Flanagan explains, "Just by coincidence we recorded 20 minutes and 16 seconds of music, so we simply added a few seconds of real-world chaos. The album cover is meant to look like a calendar - 7 squares across, with one picture from 2020 per day. Inside the booklet there are 12 pictures, one for each month of 2020; and the back is a shot of something I have never seen before in my life - a totally empty New York City. Corona Virus, quarantine, empty streets, brutality, burning buildings, violence and destruction: 2020 is a year none of us will ever forget."
