Teenage Bottlerocket - They Came From The Shadows (2009)
'They Came From The Shadows' is the fourth album from Wyoming four piece 'Teenage Bottlerocket'.
Taking influence from bands such as The Misfits with massive sing alongs and gigantic choruses, "Skate Or Die" is a song of reminiscion. Mentioning skaters such as Rodney Mullin, the band remisce of the early days before skateboarding became mainstream.
This relates to the band as they are one of the bands who you can just tell are not going to "Sell out" or basically make music for money.
Theres no doubt Teenage Bottlerocket are a fun band making great punk sing along tunes with their best friends.
One of my favourites on the album is "Not OK" These are one of the songs on the album which you'll constantly be humming along to for quite some time.
Teenage Bottlerocket is a prime example of a punk rock band with all the right qualities, the horrorpunk element also adds to the appeal. Its great to see a band who are making music for all the right reasons for once.
Overall this is a brilliant CD and can't wait to hear more from these guys! 7/10
