A Wilhelm Scream comparisons for this band only go so far as the technical guitar work, but other than that--dead-on. Fans of the Swellers and Half-Hearted Hero definitely should take note. Propagandhi, No Use for a Name, Lagwagon, Strung Out, etc. are apt comparisons as well...

But really? Anybody that loves speedy, melodic punk rock should be all over this record.

I felt like I wanted to go higher, because I love the release, but there's definitely something that's stopping it from being an elite album. There's another gear this band can hit.

Hooks. In my opinion, that's all that's standing between this band and greatness. They have great vocalists, guitarwork that's catchy and technical without being overbearing, solid production, lyrics that are relatable but lacking cheese...Everything that should make a band great, except for hooky choruses. They're catchy, but they don't quite drag you in and hold you there begging for more. If that makes sense.
