An entire generation of skateboarders fell in love with THE CRY in the early 90s after hearing songs from their LP Beautiful Reasons in the 1990 skateboard video Hokus Pokus from H-Street Skateboards. And then they just disappeared.
Beautiful Reasons, which only had a limited cassette release, became a thing of legend. THE CRY’s heartfelt vocals, jangly guitars, upbeat drumming, and distinct bass lines never stopped attracting new fans or growing in the hearts of old fans, and over the next 25+ years, they achieved something of a cult status.
But because of the magic of the digital streaming world, The Cry has once again been brought back with new material. They have just dropped a new single This Hazy Morning. The song is just as upbeat and unforgettable as previous music, with confident songwriting, catchy hooks, and deep somber vocals.
THE CRY will be releasing a string of new singles and is working toward a full-length LP expected sometime in 2020.
