At the start of this story, I want to send a high five to my old buddy Luke Albiges, as when we were working together we would excitedly share our love of metal and pop and would use the phrase ‘boybands and another one…’ as often as possible. 🎶
So the fourth album (not including the awesome Live album) from one of my fave bands is coming, Half Way There, in reference to the release-7-albums rule as mentioned in Year 3000.
As a clue to the sound, the cover of the single Nineties resurrects the old logo & this could easily have sat on the classic debut album. Don’t get me wrong, I adored the Drive aesthetic of the excellent Night Driver but I cannot help but smile at James Bourne revisiting the early years as he has one of the best pop-punk brains in the business.
