SWITCH, THE: Surviving the Transition: CDEP

Jul 06, 2007

The first release from this Long Beach-based band. It consists of former members of Madison Bloodbath and Midway. It’s very solid and tight and leans toward comparisons of Jawbreaker, Samiam, or Knapsack, although vocally it’s more grainy. Every song has a buildup or breakdown. Lyrically, there’s a sense of reflective optimism through years of failure. I’m glad to see this band around. They rule.
