The Way They Run

Now you guys know, when I get to review a melodic rock/pop punk record I have a tendency to get inordinately happy, and thats just because the music is so fun, high powered and joyful. Fortunately The Way They Run only add to this legacy of simple hard rocking riffs and quasi shouted vocals. Their new record Safe Haven is a testament to the enduring power of their genre with lots of solid songwriting and melodic chord progressions that catch the ear. Overall these guys are very tight and the guitar leads going on underneath the main riffs on songs like For Us Drifters add a lot of flavor to the music. Because here's the thing, when you have music as hooky and catchy as this can you really complain about it? Like, really, how can you hate a band that is simply so upbeat and gosh darned HONEST. To wrap up, I just want to say The Way They Run capture the spirit of pop punk and melodic rock on their new release (Even if it is only a four song EP) and I would be excited to hear a full length record from them in the future!
