Hear Crusades’ New Album ‘This Is a Sickness and Sickness Will End’

The Canadians are back to expand upon their sound.

This Is a Sickness and Sickness Will End, the third full-length from Ottawa's Crusades, isn't nearly as bleak as its title may lead you to believe. Mixed by Matt Bayles (Mastodon, Tragedy), the album sees the band implementing everything from orchestral flourishes to prog rock-worthy virtuosity into these eight songs, falling somewhere between Propagandhi and Pelican as its punk and hardcore hallmarks merge with post-rock experimentation.


This Is a Sickness and Sickness Will End is out on March 7 via Anxious & Angry (USA) and Countless Altars (Canada/Europe). Listen to the whole album below and pre-order it here. The band is hitting Europe this spring. Check out the dates below the album
