The Cryptics kick off the new decade with their single, “Face The Day”

In their 12 years together, The Cryptics have released 3 studio albums, toured internationally and direct supported some of their favorite artists.

This Dover, New Hampshire quartet came together in 2008 and has been out straight ever since. Whether touring Europe, Mexico, Cuba or direct supporting bands like Dead Kennedys, Guttermouth, and the Angry Samoans back on the homefront, the band has stayed busy in its dozen year stretch.

After 2018’s Euro-tour with Battalion Of Saints, the band took its full first year off from tour since its inception to record the all-new “Continuous New Behavior” as well as get up to speed on the band’s entire back catalog. In 2020, the band is right back where they belong.

The story behind their new single “Face The Day” is, according to the band, “simple and direct”. They continue: “There are hundreds of thousands, if not millions of able-bodied people that procrastinate daily and don’t live their lives to the fullest. It’s a song encouraging everyone to find their goals and pursue them 100% each day.

People don’t realize how lucky they are. It’s also equally encouraging people to be the complete opposite of boring. Go out, socialize, move your body. Do something you love. Do something you’re uncomfortable with. Live. Instead of being buried in electronics like the rest of society.

The band’s upcoming record, “Continuous New Behavior”, will be out on January 31st. Pre-orders are now available here:
