release notes

“Intricate and emotional music…'Crime and Soda' is a bit more optimistic and airier.” — New Noise Magazine
"Exploding with Morris and Reach’s nebulous rhythms and Sinkovich’s evocative sing-speak delivery akin to FACS and Girls Against Boys, Crime and Soda is yet another of the band’s releases which acts as a siren call to the underground and post-hardcore.” — Sun 13

On the heels of 2022's War Regards and after fifteen years of musical telepathy, Crime and Soda, is arguably the most balanced offering from The Poison Arrows. Their 5th LP showcases the band’s keen ability to balance softer, more contemplative periods held together by a dark and driving rhythm section with their signature moody-math intensity and complexity.
