101 Avenue A - New York, NY


Get Dead vocalist Sam King’s graffiti crew were giving tattoos and making flash art to raise money to help rapper Ceschi Ramos when he was in prison. Months later they met at the Gilman Street Project in Berkeley, California. 
They bonded, talking about their love of hip-hop and punk rock. They didn’t know it yet, but they had just started Codefendants. 
Impossible to define by traditional standards, Codefendants were forged out of a desire to make an album that sounded like nothing else while still capturing the feeling of music they admired as kids growing up in the Bay Area. 
Fat Mike, bassist of NoFX and punk hero was floored when he heard the first three demos and joined the project as lead producer, studio bassist & additional songwriter. 
In 2023 This Is Crime Wave was voted Punk Rock Vinyl album of the year, publications such as Kerrang, Dying Scene, Outburn & New Noise Magazine have praised it.
