And I was fortunate to see them in Vermont last night. The stage was small and bar was intimate, but they played like they were playing for 350 people, and not just the 50 or so in the crowd. As my friend remarked, their rhythm section is really tight, giving Chuck and Lisa a foundation to let go with their guitars and vocals. If you like noisy melodic rock songs, there's no one out there who matches their sound and melodies.
Even though it doesn't come out until May, they were selling their new CD, Attica!, at the show. On first listen it sounds great: more produced, like their last album, but with the darkness and soul from some some of their earlier ones. You can find new tracks here and here. I can't think of a better, more under-appreciated band.
