DeeCracks - 20 Years - A Frantic Effort Cd

To mark this milestone in their 20 year career DeeCRACKS are releasing A Frantic Effort, a massive retrospective compendium of their favorite songs from the past two decades. But don't think for a second that DeeCRACKS would try to sell you a stodgy, frozen-in-amber "Greatest Hits" collection.

"We decided to revisit our career and re-recorded our favorites and what we think are the band's classics, as well as two completely new songs," says Mike. "This way, we have songs from 2003 up until 2023 on one album... and in one great sounding production."

"We decided to record some songs a little closer to how we would do them live but give them the studio treatment," adds Matt. Indeed, the inspiration for the tracklisting is largely based on the band's world-renowned live show, where the raw energy of seasoned punk rockers comes ripping out of every tune. And being able to revisit those tunes after road testing them for all these years inspired the band to add just the right amount of studio magic, including new vocal harmonies, guitar parts, or keys, while staying true to the live set.

The pair of new songs, "Burnt Out" and"Where We Belong," are a song about facing your demons and a straight up love song, respectively... two sides of theDeeCRACKS' coin. They are certain to take their place in the band's canon alongside this collection of revitalized classics for both longtime fans and newcomers alike. Or as Matt puts it, "I think if you don't know what we are all about and you check out A Frantic Effort, you'll get a clue."
