Who said postgrunge was dead? When bands like 8 Stops 7 continue to release newmusic even though it was7 years since last one with "Bend" in 2004. The new album "Fables" was recorded with help from their fans through Pledge Music, it´s a good way to support your favorite bands. It feels like 8 Stops 7 are rocking a bit harder on "Fables" compared to the previous album but perhaps I´m wrong, it was sometime ago I listened to that album. I really like songs like "The mark", "22 38" and the single "The sting", great guitar driven rock. But there are also moments that feels rather average like "The patriot" when you can go and get some popcorn if you hear that song in concert. Anyhow, this will appeal to fans of 12 Stones, Creed and Live.
