BETWEEN WARS – Shot in 9 days with one camera – A team that worked 15-hour days and nights during a heatwave in Philadelphia and the Bronx- No permits- No insurance- Barely any money to get food for cast and crew. Raw, independent filmmaking to the core and the acting debut of New York hardcore punk legend Harley Flanagan!
Director and Producer Tom Phillips knew he was “McManus;” “He owned it right from the start,” says Phillips. Harley also came on as music supervisor, with his band, CRO-MAGS contributing 3 tracks off their forthcoming 2020 album »In The Beginning«, which will be released worldwide on the 19th of June 2020 via Arising Empire and Mission Two Entertainment!
BETWEEN WARS puts an emphasis on very real human conditions, isolated individuals under agonizing circumstances and themes that dive into the fire of powerful societal issues.

Numerous iconic bands from METALLICA to GREEN DAY, and individuals such as Dave Grohl have credited CRO-MAGS with having had a primal influence on their development.
Born out of the violence and depravity of the Lower East Side of New York in the late 70s and early 80s, the CRO-MAGS was the brain-child of a very young Harley Flanagan (at the time 14 years old) when still playing with THE STIMULATORS. By 1982/83 he wrote and recorded the very first CRO-MAGS demos consisting of four songs that would become the blue print for the seminal 1986 »Age of Quarrel«. He wrote all of the music, played each instrument and sang. Before long he connected with Parris Mayhew and the two started writing music and auditioning band members.
After several line-ups, 5 studio albums (beyond the original demos) and 30 + years of tours around the world, CRO-MAGS remains one of the most iconic hardcore bands with arguably the greatest reach beyond the genre.CRO-MAGS are:
Harley Flanagan | bass/vocals
