Craig’s Brother return yet again with a song sure to bring out all those old fans and mix it up with the new school crew who found them more recently.

The Blamed Re-Record "Separation" for 2022 and It is HUGE!

The Blamed just re-recorded their 1994 classic song – “Separation” off the album “21” and have posted it on soundcloud for your listening pleasure. Personally, I think this song blows away past material. It’s so well done yet classic at the same time. If 1994 was 2022, this is what “Separation” would most definitely sound like. Kudos to Bryan, Jim, and the rest of the gang for paying tribute to your roots while at the same time embracing the future.… Continued →
