A Criminal Risk Releases Full-Length’s Title Track, “The Art Of Dropping Names,” Playing Benefit Concert

On December 10th the Ocean County-based Pop-Punk outfit,        A Criminal Risk, released its debut full-length, The Art Of Dropping Names, in relative secrecy…and I can’t figure out why.

Who knows why more noise wasn’t made about this eight-track collection, SIMGE isn’t here to debate that, only to report that the group has made the record’s title track available to stream and it would be in your best interest to do so.

“The Art Of Dropping Names” possesses trace elements of an Against Me! influence but is far more melodious and inviting than much of the catalogue owned by the former Floridian anarchists turned wrongly exiled Pop-Punks.

Tom Kunzman’s axe wielding sets an explosive tone sure to cause head banging-induced neck injuries while Danny Kay’s vocal work and lyricism invite inhabitants of circle pits everywhere to take some time off from their schedule of furious boot stomping to sing along…check it out below:

Check out A Criminal Risk on March 31st in the Brick Presbyterian Church (111 Drum Point Road in Brick, NJ) at the 100k Sound and Santo DiBenedetto Presented Good Music For Good People benefit concert featuring such local artists and acts as Carpet Ride, Chris Rockwell, A Tale To Tell, and many more.  Doors for the event open at 5 p.m. with and $8 donation to be made upon entrance.
