This Texas based quintet plays non compromising rock with one foot in hardrock territories and the other one in melodic punkrock land. They?ve got enough energy to be compared to The Who?s wildest performance and will probably scare away any chartloving pop freak with their explosive rocknroll but I welcome them into my house without doubt. If you like bands such as Billy Talent,Buckcherry and Kevin Martin & The HiWatts - dEAf PEdESTRIANS is the band for you. Sure,the album has it?s up?s and downs but there are enough good songs to look ?em up - the very melodic new single "Splatter" and the midtempo love ballad "Empty" warms my heart a whole lot. A good choice to blow out your brain once in a while!
