Release number three in just two years time sees these Bostonians crank out six more anthems that will get your blood flowing. Or someone else’s when you raise your fist a bit too enthusiastic at one of their shows. These are the kind of songs that remind you why you got into punkrock and hardcore in the first place. It sounds like these dudes are simply having fun yet at the same time play like their lives depend on it. Cathartic and fast, introspective and melodic… you can throw it all at these guys and it will all stick. With the help of Jay Maas (Verse, Shipwreck, Cruel Hand) they managed to contain their unbridled energy on a shiny disc with “Outbound” and its glorious singalong at the end as the album’s pinnacle. The result is an EP that will most certainly appeal to all the fans of Lifetime and other late 80s/early 90s post-hardcore/melodic hardcore acts

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.
