It's hard to believe it has been nine years since the last release from this New Jersey outfit. The new song is about "looking at the things you’ve come through and feeling like you want to go ahead with an open heart toward the future," according to the band's Brian Fallon. It's a hopeful and positive message that is backed by stellar guitar work.
THE GASLIGHT ANTHEM
With every new release, Tom MacDonald cements himself as a leading musician with a message. One has to wonder why he can't get airplay but songs about Wet Ass Pussy can? Just to be clear, explicit sexuality is cool, but songs with social commentary that push mainstream ideology are not? Someone is going to benefit when they learn the right answer.
BURN BABY BURN
It's time to throw gas on the fire and immediately graduate The Aquadolls from the pantheon of specialty show bands to full time rotation with their latest song. Fuzzed up guitars mixed with the power of singer Melissa Brooks is a sweet delight delivered with attitude. Find it on their June2 release, Charmed, which is an ode to the tv show of the same name.
