Spoken are busy at it once again and have begun tracking their new album. This will be the follow up to “Breathe Again” which released in 2015. Unfortunately recent guitarist/songwriter Scoop Roberts will be stepping away from the band after they record this new album. You can watch a video below detailing why. I think they need to bring back Jef Cunningham and go out on tour playing hits from their earlier 4 albums from 2000-2007. That’d be sweet! Continued →

TRAMPS the band featuring ex-members of The Wedding and The Overseer have released their debut ep. Filled to the brim with passionate, honest, and heart on the sleeve rock n’ roll. To put it lightly, I’m more than impressed with this debut and feel that it’s one of the strongest debut releases of 2016. There is just something that reeks of pure honesty when listening to these songs. Featuring a slight “punk rock” edge while staying true to straight up dyed in the wool rock n’ roll. Imagine the bands The Gaslight Anthem, Bruce Springsteen, (old)Against Me, Make Do and Mend, and The Menzingers all collaborated on a song and you’ll get a sense of the realism in these songs. You can listen to the songs below. Check out the song “Winds” featuring Matty Mullins (Memphis May Fire).
