SLAPSHOT: (2001) Greatest Hits, Slashes and Crosschecks [[#320kbps]]

In July 1997, Slapshot played what was to be their last concert in the United States for five years, in Plymouth, Massachusetts. They toured Europe in 1999, including a stop at the Graspop Metal Meeting in Belgium. In December 1999, a Slapshot tribute album called Boston Drops The Gloves - A Tribute To Slapshot was released by Flat Records (the label owned by Ken Casey of the Dropkick Murphys) and San Francisco-based TKO Records. The album included covers by 22 Boston bands.
In 2001, Slapshot issued a new album entitled Greatest Hits, Slashes and Crosschecks featuring re-recorded versions of classic Slapshot songs. They followed up with 2003's Digital Warfare (I Scream Records) and 2005's Tear It Down, along with several more European tours. In 2006, Slapshot released a statement on their website announcing that the band was defunct. However, on June 30, 2007, they played at the Significant Fest 2007 in Clearwater, Florida. Also on the bill were Killing Time, 108 and Uppercut. In July 2008, they played a couple of dates in Europe, with a stop at the With Full Force festival in Leipzig, Germany.
Slapshot played a show in Haverhill, Massachusetts on November 8th, 2008 with Ten Yard Fight, Step Forward, and Word For Word, and on December 28 in Boston at the Middle East with The Mighty Mighty Bosstones.
