Release Date

Label
Tooth & Nail Records

Style: Radio-ready pop punk; compare to Relient K, All-American Rejects, Green Day

Top tracks: "A Perfect Voice," "Vagabonds," "Solar-Powered Life"

"I may not have a perfect voice, but I'll still sing at the top of my lungs," Matt MacDonald intones at the top of Vagabonds, the new record from his band The Classic Crime. He's right on both counts: MacDonald and his cohorts are less about technical precision than they are rocking with youthful vigor and crass, three-chord abandon. Their pummeling pop-punk sound doesn't add one iota of newness or invention to the typical Tooth & Nail formula, but fans aren't likely to care. They make a joyful noise, singing about love and seeing God in life's "broken mess."
