For Police & Thieves, this is their first official recording since their second EP, "Amor Y Guerra," on Youngblood Records in 2008. The songs on the split maintain their mid-tempo, melodic, '80s DC sound from their previous releases, while adding faster parts to the songs, giving them a more dynamic and powerful feel. For South America's Remission, they recorded these two new songs shortly after their "Winds Of Promise" 7" on React! Records. Their style has been influenced by Verbal Assault and Dag Nasty but they continue to put their own stamp of melodic hardcore over this classic style.
