Wow a truly mind blowing rock band, Every now and then you get that one band that just hits you hard and makes you think amazing. Well that’s these guys and we mean amazing. From hard hitting to soft ballad rock songs with a country feel you’d be hard pushed not to love them. Reminding us of the Foo Fighters mixed with Hinder then add a bit of Seether for good measure, chuck in some country blues rock with some fantastic guitar riffs accompanied by some cool gruff vocals and bingo, one awesome band. Vocally Supreme, Lyrically superb and the music is just mind blowing. We need say no more, proof is in the listening.
