Sick Of It All will celebrate their 30th anniversary with the release of their When The Smoke Clears package.

It will feature a five-track EP and a coffee table art book which includes rare photos and personal liner notes from punk peers such as AFI’s Davey Havok, Hot Water Music’s Chuck Ragan, Gorilla Biscuits’ Arthur Smilios and Dropkick Murphys’ Matt Kelly. It launches on November 4.

Guitarist Pete Koller tells Out Of Step fanzine: “30 years – well, it was fun. I would not say an achievement because we never really wanted to achieve something. We just kept on playing.

“There are also no regrets. What’s done is done and if you fucked something up back then, so what?”

He adds: “There is no secret on how to keep doing what you do for 30 years. When we came along, it seemed to be the perfect time for our Sick Of It All style of hardcore. We have a certain style – it changed over the years, but not much.”

When The Smoke Clears will be available to pre-order in due course.

Sick Of It All will tour Europe with Wisdom In Chains next month, and are set to tour Australia with Refused in January next year.
