The Crew

Rancid, Pennywise & Suicidal Tendencies Members Unite As The Crew For Benefit Single “One Voice”


Rancid‘s vocalist/guitarist Tim Armstrong and bassist/vocalist Matt Freeman, Pennywise‘s guitarist/vocalist Fletcher Dragge and drummer/vocalist Byron McMackin and Suicidal Tendencies frontman Mike Muir have united in a punk rock collective dubbed The Crew. The outfit released the below track “One Voice“, which originated from a demo of the Pennywise track of the same name. Pre-orders for a limited edition 7″ pressing were made available at Bandcamp.

Dragge commented on the outfit:

“Collaborating with Tim Armstrong, Mike Muir, and Matt Freeman has been an awesome experience, obviously Byron Mcmackin and I go way back. Byron and I had a demo of ‘One Voice’ laying around for couple years, and I thought it would be cool to bring a couple old friends on board to breath some new life into it.

Watching these guys lay down their own personal trademark styles on this song was nothing short of amazing! I think it’s safe to safe we’re all pretty fucking stoked on the final product, and being able to donate proceeds to Musack feels pretty awesome as well. Find it, crank it up, and enjoy!”

As Dragge mentioned above, proceeds from the track will go towards Musack, an organization which aims to ‘give kids and teens a voice through music by providing musical instruments and support for teachers.’

The aforementioned vinyl pressing of “One Voice” finds some of those young musicians, Rippy And The Sillyettes, contributing a song titled “One In A Million” to the b-side. The outfit penned that song about a friend of theirs that was murdered.
