Sick Of It All
tarted by brothers Lou and Pete Koller (vocals and guitar respectively), along with Rich Cipriano (bass) and Armand Majidi (drums), Sick Of It All would soon become an important addition to the New York hardcore punkrock scene, coming across as a stronger form of Rancid and Beastie Boys, with their early releases of Blood Sweat And No Tears (1989) and Just Look Around (1991).
We Stand Alone (1992) was their last with E.K. and Eddie who left and were replaced with Craig Setari (bass) and the returning Armin Majidi (drums; who had left only the year before and was replaced by Max Capshaw and Eric Komst respectively in the mean time.
'East-West' would jump on the hardcore revivalist movement of the early 1990s when they signed the act to release Scratch The Surface (1994). It wouldn't be until 1997 when Sick of It All's Built To Last release emerged, followed soon after by Call To Arms (1999). Sick Of It All also took the time for some socialist endeavors when they assisted their roadie Toby Morse get his act H2O off the ground.
2000's Yours Truly received less critical acclaim, while 2003 saw the arrival Life on the Ropes. Death to Tyrants (2006), Based on a True Story (2010), XXV Nonstop (2011), The Last Act of Defiance (2014) and Wake the Sleeping Dragon! (2018) followed.
