Back in November we were happy to premiere ‘Regular Blokes,’ the debut single by new kid on the block, American Thrills. That song can now be enjoyed along with three others on the band’s self-titled EP, out now on New School Records.

Even though the Milford, Connecticut band has only been around since earlier in 2020, these guys have previously spent time in The Tired and True and Shut Up and Deal. It explains why they already sound so well-rounded, swinging right for the fences on opener ‘Somewhere In America’. This is punkrock from the heartland and kinda what you wish The Gaslight Anthem still sounded like. The other songs on here follow suit, big on melancholy and melody but still rocking out with the best of them and filled with nothing but heart.

 

Track listing:

  1. Somewhere In America
