Inner Circle are the "Bad Boys of Reggae." If you've ever seen the TV show COPS then you know why -- they wrote the theme song. But Inner Circle aren't one-hit novelty wonders; the band has released 24 studio albums since 1974. These conscious dudes are among the few active reggae bands to have gotten to rock shows with Bob Marley, and are still going strong. Their new album State Of Da World proves it. Crossfade is giving away a copy of that album, as well as an autographed poster to the first commenter on this post. Make sure to leave your valid email address. For now, after the jump, check out these pictures we shot at Circle House.

By the way, Roger wants all our readers to know that he's looking for a "Nice Spanish girl. Maybe a Colombian, or a Venezuelan," but pretty much any nice Spanish girl. Interested parties should contact Roger at firstname.lastname@example.org
