The final release by one of hardcore's most renowned artists accurately recreates the invincible formula of their breakthrough album while refining its ingredients and retaining the progressive and uplifting edge that launched their legend. While enervated scenesters talk about hardcore punk in the past tense, there every so often comes a band like LIFETIME to remind us how invigorating and relevant the genre can be with a little bit of passion and sincerity.

Issued as a teaser for their upcoming album, LIFETIME offer this two-song single to their growing canon. "The Boy's No Good" is a classic uptempo hardcore anthem, while "Somewhere In The Swamps of Jersey" - a track exclusive to this single only - breaks away from the three-chord fury of the A-side to forge a tuneful, melodic punk track with more hooks than haste.

Release Date: September 1, 1995

While the majority of bands who comprised the sudden burst of early 90s hardcore began disbanding or finding themselves creatively spent, LIFETIME deftly reinvented their sound, style, and substance, made a new home for themselves at Jade Tree, and then proceeded to release one of the most influential punk albums of the decade. All that in just a little over a half-hour? Believe it.
