EDITORS’ NOTES

Blasting through a tight set of caffeinated pop-punk for their second album, this New York quintet nail every confusing emotion that comes with lost love and bruised egos. The guitars stay on the offensive: Tyler Szalkowski's shrill licks snake around Tony Diaz's rhythmic strikes, and the two wrestle furiously on "Breaking Ground" and "Tooth and Nail." But vocalist Derek DiScanio's stance shifts constantly, from unapologetic on fast-paced opener "Eyes Closed" to optimistic on the sizzling hand-clapper "Shape Up" to nakedly vulnerable on the title track, an acoustic ballad with Ansley Newman.

Must Have.

The new is fire, I expect the rest of the album to set my house up in flames.

Just another 5* Review

These guys are so good I broke my ankle and leg at the same time while listening to Losing Myself and the first thing I did when it happened was put my headphones back in. (True story)

promising!

From what I have heard from them, they are very promising. I hope to see them go big time! They certainly have the talent.
