Hey mate, thanks for the heads up. I knew nothing of this release and thought the chances of Charlie Simpson getting back with these guys was about as likely as Slash and Duff getting back together with Axl... oh, wait. I guess that explains it.

 

Anyway, I got to spin it tonight and theres some great stuff on here. I think 'Without it' was my favourite tune? I think. 'Kids with computers' was good too. It's just such an unexpected album.

 

As for the sound, yeah, it's a different one, hey? I wondered the entire time I listened how they settled on this sound. It's kinda like a retro 80's sound at times. I was just putting together the original Busted sound, Son of Dork, Fightstar, McBusted and Charlie Simpson's solo work all together, and basically, none of it has hinted towards something like this at all. I have never heard the 3rd dude's solo stuff (and not for lack of trying) but maybe he is a big influence? I don't know. I kind of expected it to be more of a band project since the 2 guys I do know about formed pop punk / hard rock bands straight after Busted. But then Simpson's solo stuff is mostly acoustic (and awful) so who knows.

 

Anyway, I really never saw this coming and it's a cool surprise. An album I could really see growing on me very well. It's definitely one that demands more than one listen.

Jeez this one's pleasant on the ears. Like I said above, huge grower. No doubt at all that this is one of the finest songs of the year to me. I absolutely love this thing;

Yep superb song.

 

Been playing the album a lot lately, and that song twice as much. One of my absolute faves of the year.

Holy shit! I've been waiting to get to this, and I finally did, today. Yeah, not at all what I was anticipating, but really good, nonetheless.

Wait until it grows on you with every single listen... and it will. I'd never have picked in a million years that Busted, of all bands, would create an album with depth... but they sure have done it here. 'Without it' will definitely contend for my song of the year, and 'New York' is another massive favourite of mine. Really good album.

"Night Driver" is a great song, too. Has a nice Hall & Oates vibe.

Had no idea at all about this release!! Love everything about this CD. 'Without it' is one of the most catchiest songs I have heard in a long time. Thanks guys!

    • Ok Cody, It was 41 vs 330. It's now 63 vs 335, so we're making ground, but you need to fire up and make some contributions. It's your thread and that's what you're hanging by at the moment with the big guy.

    • A little sumthin sumthin from the coolest band east of the Rockies.    Show them some well deserved lovin' fellas!   FuZZrd thanks readers w/an advance download of “Pins & Needles” from their debut LP Near Life Experience being released globally December 10, 2021. From Steve Karas (w/slight edits): FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE December 3, 2021 FuZZrd's debut studio album: Near Life Experience available December 10, 2021 Download “PINS & NEEDLES” Here: https://www.fuzzrd.com/sleazeroxx/ Album teaser video: https://bit.ly/FuZZrdAlbumTeaser Pre-order: https://fuzzrd.limitedrun.com/ Upcoming live show at Minneapolis’ The Southern Theatre December 11, 2021 –  https://southerntheater.org/ Minneapolis, MN – FuZZrd would like to share their gratitude to the sites readers and presents a free download of the song “Pins & Needles” in advance of the band’s debut studio album Near Life Experience which is being released on December 10, 2021. To access the free download or preview the song, click here: https://www.fuzzrd.com/sleazeroxx/.   FuZZrd guitarist and vocalist Brett Petrusek shares, “Pins and Needles is a personal favorite. It's a song about loss and the overwhelming feeling of anxiety that can often ensue. If you've ever felt so wound up that your skin is crawling you may relate. For me, it's sonically intriguing, it's mysterious and the chorus hits just right. It's wickedly fun to play on guitar, too!" The debut album can be pre-ordered at a discounted price here: https://fuzzrd.limitedrun.com. The band will perform the day following release day alongside Johnny O' Neil (of Dare Force fame) and up and comers, The Issue at The Southern Theatre in Minneapolis, MN. Tickets for the appearance can be purchased by visiting https://southerntheater.org/. Petrusek reflects, “I'm so very proud of what we have accomplished this past year. It's gratifying to see and hear Near Life Experience in its completed form. It's a powerhouse and definitely fits in the category of ‘album I've always wanted to make’. The chemistry with our producer Jeremy Tappero continued to flourish and we all grew as musicians. I love the songs and sound we've created. It's fresh, and new, and noticeably doesn't chase trends. It stays true to its heavy rock roots. It's so awesome to be a part of FuZZrd coming to life, playing live shows, and sharing our music. The whole of what we have created is truly rewarding. I'm totally grateful to have this group." Bassist and background vocalist Robert Berg states, “Substance of structure. A collection of songs that in my view captures what's truly important for fans of multigenerational hard rock. I love the upfront guitars and inspired solos. There's a maturity in the vocal melodies that catapults the meaningful lyrical content. It was inspiring to witness. Every member brought what was necessary; when necessary. I believe we just barely dipped our toes into what's possible with our current guitar duo's musical chemistry. Special, special, special thanks to Producer Jeremy Tappero. I tell him all the time that my favorite moments in life are sitting in the chair next to him and laying it down. He's a true mentor who seemingly always knows what's right for the band. Brett is quite forward thinking and never short of ideas. FuZZrd will build on the experience and continue to make the rock pound." Guitarist and background vocalist Eric Fairchild offers, “Discovering the chemistry and camaraderie of FuZZrd has been the highlight of a truly chaotic year and a half. Being able to connect and collaborate on new music has been so fulfilling. I’m really proud of the work we’ve put in, and the album that has emerged as a result. The songs on Near Life Experience have been able to capture so many feelings that have been otherwise difficult to express. Plus, it’s always fun to tear it up on the guitar! I’m thrilled to get these songs in front of audiences, and continue to build on what we’ve started." Drummer Scott Savage adds, "I could not be happier with the new record; and it could not have happened without everyone’s dedication and hard work. It’s so gratifying to have this finished product and be able to share with everyone! I’m so proud of my band mates and what we have accomplished. We are definitely fired up about what the future holds for us!" For more information contact: Steve Karas SKH Music -  skaras@skhmusic.com
    • I'm digging this song.  Good stuff.  Background vocals don't bother me at all here.
    • Yeah, my apologies for not checking there first.  Figured H.E.A.T fans that frequent this section would be interested.
