New York hardcore legends Sick of It All have said that their new album, Based on a True Story, is actually based on their true story. This includes songs about moshing and even a tribute to the bygone era of hardcore matinees. The fact that tonight is the record release party, coupled with the possibility that many of True Story‘s real characters might show up to see their hometown heroes tonight and dance like they did in the good ol’ days, should be warning enough to wear closed-toe shoes. With Bane, Capital, and Inhuman.
