Colin Barth's winding guitars juggle melody, punch and vitriol on par with the Avengers, John Reis, Mission of Burma and Greg Ginn. Play it loud on tracks such as "Deathbed Rebels" that push the punk envelope a bit further with frenzied, circle-pit fodder reminiscent of the Circle Jerks and Big Boys.Underneath, snaking rolls of bass drive the proceedings with the flawless percussive thrust of the Ramones, Hot Snakes and bygone Boston hardcore heroes F.U.s, Jerry's Kids. Over this Jason Mazzola distinguishes the band with a full, arching tenor that's more bellow than scream. Mazzola's delivery and lyrics shine especially on numbers like "Lower Eastada" and "Dead Idols," where the band's punk 'n roll swagger takes over (think more Johnny Thunders, less Ray Cappo). After listening to Lost Art, you won't be worried about categorizing the band, only when they go back on tour.Lost Art will be released on CD and LP on November 3rd and is now available for pre-order in the Jade Tree Store. Each LP will include a coupon allowing a download of the songs in MP3 format. The album will also be available in digital form through iTunes, Amazon MP3, eMusic, Jade Tree store and most other digital music stores.A test pressing of Lost Art will be sneak previewed in the band´s hometown of Richmond at the store/gallery Henry, for the First Friday Art Walk this Friday. If you live nearby, check it out at 212 W Broad St between Madison & Jefferson in Richmond.TRACKLIST: 01 Billions Millions02 Dead Idols03 Don´t Need A04 Broken Wrists05 Deathbed Rebels06 Eyes On The Wall07 Same Old Story08 Dead Town Beat09 Lower Eastada10 In My Orbit11 Fast Food Dream12 Lost Art13 Tragic Sleep
