About this Release

A furious post-hardcore set, spooning melodic riffs over the top like whipped cream’

The Big Cheese Blast section: –

These five guys from the Greater London area make up this rock band that combines catchy hooks, energetic riffs & frantic vocals on their debut album ‘Retire Your Engines’. Clearly influenced by everything from Punk to Stadium Rock, influences such as Alkaline Trio, At The Drive In & Glassjaw shine through, as does a distinctly English edge that first made Hundred Reasons & Reuben so exhilarating. According to the guys themselves, their sound can be described as ‘a furious marriage of Post Hardcore riffage to Pop-laden hooks. If you are sick of bands who are afraid to break out of the constraints of what Punk & Rock can offer then these guys are worth checking out. Well on their way to making a real name for themselves & with a February UK tour being lined up, this could be the sound of The Separation just revving their engines. Don’t bet against them taking the chequered flag……..
