Holy shit mate, that sounds fantastic!!!! I feel like I passed this by in the past because I assumed it wasn't in English. Thanks for the heads up, seeking this one out hungrily and immediately.

I wonder if many people listened to this. For those who didn't know, it's a side project from 2 of the guys from Story Of The Year. I haven't even heard this EP yet, but I just heard they have a 2nd EP out on the streets - can't wait to hear it;




01. A Real Life
02. Top Of The World
03. Coming Home
04. I'm Afraid Of Americans (feat. Stephen Christian)
05. Fever
This appears to be the first single from it;
Sounds rather good to me.

Very nice - sounds like a smoother SOTY - do you know which 2 members are involved - cant tell if that is the singer or not, I would guess not.


Some real SOTY influences in there tho.


And 2 EPs would make a nice 10 track album on my phone :)

Nah, not the singer, though I just read he was their drummer on tour in 2012. It's the 2 guitarists - Phil Sneed and Ryan Phillips, who, as you'd know, can actually really play. To this date, probably still my favourite modern rock guitarists.


Actually speaking of the vocalist, I think it was you who told me about The Fuck Off And Dies. They actually released a 2nd album in 2015 called 'Dear Liver' too. Again, not something I have heard yet.

    • His music videos are always good: either very silly, or very sexy. So I've got this queued up on the PC. Looking forward to it. 
    • New single "The Animal" dropped today, not bad at all:    
    • I dig the new tune!  Honestly, might be my favorite yet from these guys. I like that this kind of gets away from the  Bon Jovi Country vibe they sometimes had on the debut.  For me, this has a fresh, big sound to it.   Will have the new one on my radar.
    • 3rd single... Love It   
    • New video for 'Dance'.

    • After releasing two albums with AOR/Melodic Rock band Streets, ”1st” (1983) and ”Crimes In Mind” (1985), lead singer and keyboardist Steve Walsh returned to Kansas, to revive the band along with original members Phil Ehart (drums) and Rich Williams (Guitar). Furthermore, the lineup was completed by the addition of bassist Billy Greer (from Streets) and young, promising, former Dixie Dregs guitar man Steve Morse, who also contributed with composing skills and backing vocals. Eventually, the group’s ”Power” album was released in November of 1986, rather much to the vintage Kansas and Prog Rock purists dismissal, as I recall it. The heavier sound/direction and absence of violinist Robby Steinhardt, songwriter/keyboardist/guitarist Kerry Livgren and bassist Dave Hope were all contributing factors to the disapproval, it seems. However, mentioned ”Power” should perhaps instead be judged on its own merits, as it is what it is. Put out in a time when commercial Melodic Hardrock was very much in fashion, with FM rock radio and MTV as ever the important ingredients of daily life. In the end, the album actually landed at a respectable No. 35 on the Billboard chart, while the single/ballad ”All I Wanted” eventually rose to an even more impressive No. 19.

    • They have a real knack for writing (and producing!) songs that could be featured in '80s coming of age films and I mean that in the most complimentary way possible. Really putting the retro in retrowave
