Sick of It All is an American hardcore punk band from Queens, New York. Formed in 1986, the band consisted of brothers Lou Koller on vocals and Pete Koller on lead guitar, Rich Cipriano on bass, and Armand Majidi on drums. There have been only two member changes since their inception, with Max Capshaw temporarily filling in for Majidi in 1989 and Craig Setari replacing Cipriano in 1992. Formed when hardcore punk waned in popularity, Sick of It All has nonetheless been known to be a major part of the New York hardcore scene. Though their 1989 debut album Blood, Sweat and No Tears was a moderate success, Sick of It All had not achieved commercial success until further albums. After the release of their 1992 second album Just Look Around', East West Records saw the band's potential and signed them in 1993. Sick of It All's third and major label debut album, Scratch the Surface, was released in 1994 to criticial acclaim, especially the singles "Scratch the Surface" and "Step Down" (the video for the latter single would also be featured in the 1995 Beavis and Butt-head episode "Premature Evacuation"). Their 1997 follow-up Built to Last was also highly acclaimed. Despite the success of Built to Last, Sick of It All was dropped from East West and signed to Fat Wreck Chords in 1998, who released the band's next three albums. Seven years later, Sick of It All was dropped from Fat Wreck and signed to Abacus Records, a subsidiary of Century Media. This label released their eighth studio album Death to Tyrants in 2006 to positive reviews (Abacus eventually went out of business, though Sick of It All would remain on Century Media). Death to Tyrants was followed by Based on a True Story in 2010.
