From the town of fictitious anchorman Ron Burgundy, San Diego, post-hardcore sextet In Fear And Faith follow up from their 2009 album ‘Your World On Fire’ and shed their pirate concepts for a much more mature sound. The evolution of the band is clear for all to see as the opening track ‘The Solitary Life’ shows the dual vocals of Cody Anderson and Scott Barnes mixing together perfectly to make an easy to digest and enjoy smoothie in audio form. Staying abrasively heavy as ever, the track was penned in honour of the painstaking decisions the bands have made to stay together over the years.
The album is blistering from start to finish with no holds barred from the band at all as they visit all sorts of areas of their personal life for inspiration. The lyrics are fraught with emotion and were no doubt written with blood and sweat and were no doubt performed equally in the same fashion. The tracks just keep coming and provide a taste to whet the appetite as they continue, making you delve further into the record with huge anticipation.
