Following up their 2009 EP “3D Radio”, The Reveling strikes again with their first full-length. It’s called “Tributaries” and on it are a bunch of songs that will take you back to the 90s when bands like Face To Face, older Green Days and “Goddamnit” era Alkaline Trio did what they do best. They got the solid hooks and melodies down pat while loud guitars do their thing over fast-paced rhythms. Meanwhile Sean Morris’ voice keeps things more recent, bringing The Gaslight Anthem’s Brian Fallon to mind.

With a production job by Alex Newport (Frank Turner, Rival Schools, Samiam), “Tributaries” sounds amazing and it’s albums like this that make me remember every single time why I fell in love with punkrock in the first place. I’m pretty sure we’ll be hearing a lot more from this band in the future!

Lacking the talent to actually play in a band, Tom decided he would write about bands instead. Turns out his writing skills are mediocre at best as well.
