Sick Of It All – Us vs. Them


In 1997, Sick Of It All released their second record on the EastWest label, Built to Last. This record had released a number of live staples for the band, including “Us vs. Them,” “Busted” and “Good Lookin’ Out.” The album also marked the end of Sick of It All’s contractual agreement with EastWest.

Built to Last is the fourth full-length studio album by the New York hardcore punk band. It was released on East West Records – a subsidiary of the Warner Music Group – in February, 1997. Equal Vision Records held the rights to release it exclusively on vinyl.

Built to Last was the result of a year’s work for Sick of It All, with pre-production beginning around late 1995/early 1996. The recording took place in Normandy Sound studio in Warren, Rhode Island (where their first three albums had been recorded) and in two studios in California.
