Only Crime have just released a new music video for "Life Was Fair," a track from their upcoming record, Pursuance. The punk rock supergroup features Russ Rankin of Good Riddance, Aaron Dalbec of Bane, Bill Stevenson of Descendents, All, and Black Flag, Matt Hoffman of Modern Life Is War, and Dan Kelly of The Frisk. Pursuance will be their third full-length record, the first since 2007's Virulence.

"Life Was Fair" is a somber anthem, full of hard hitting riffs, introspective lyrics, and Stevenson's furious drum work. The video, shot in black and white, features footage of the band spliced with a short, sad narrative of two friends torn apart by drug abuse. The hopeful tone of the song remains in the video, but it's a grim, familiar tale in the punk rock community. Check it out above.

Pursuance will be out May 13th on Rise Records, and you can pre-order it in a variety of formats through Only Crime's official store.

Only Crime "Life Was Fair" lyrics:

It doesn't make a sound
Ripping through the pages of another time
And sometimes it's hard enough creating versions in my mind
Like an engine hitting failure
Broken down from the night before
If there's a chance to get it right, one thing worth waiting for

Like where I've been before
Kept out of sight but not out of life
Still swept aside and shackled by these penalties and rhymes
So just let me go
And form all the lives I never could
When it evens out in time will we be satisfied?

They should've been ashamed
Reaching back for the life we left behind
If there's a function or release why can't I find the time?
Just a passing observation
Without a trace of banality
If there's a low road to surrender can it just be me?

Like where I've been before
Kept out of sight but not out of life
Still swept aside and shackled by these penalties and rhymes
So just let me go
And form all the lives I never could
When it evens out in time will we be satisfied?

So pacified
Like life was fair
Kept out of sight left with all despair

Like where I've been before
Kept out of sight but not out of life
Still swept aside and shackled by these penalties & rhymes
So just let me go
And form all the lives I never could
When it evens out in time will we be satisfied?
