This Is A Standoff

Be Excited

Record label: Household Name Records

My immediate reaction to the artwork of this CD was this was it was a Drive Thru band. Well anyone who knows who they are will probably kick me. This is a release on Household Name Records, and this lot are bits of Belvedere who have come back for another round since splitting up a couple of years ago after ten years.

I was never too into Belvedere, mostly through laziness of not taking the time to listen to them. However, I think I prefer This Is A Standoff anyway. It is much more straight-up melodic punk, and has all the good bits from Belvedere still in tact. And the vocals, along the lines of Bad Religion or similar bands, are one of my favourite bits about this CD.

This is definitely a singalong record, and I think their live show will be the place to put this to the test. They just so happen to be touring the UK in April, so see you down the front?
