Release Date: November 28th, 2011
Label: Banquet Records
If you mention the phrase “indie rock” to fans of heavier music, you tend to get a pretty hostile response. Mostly you get complaints of it being watered down rock music requiring the talent just to churn out generic chords in some kind of rhythm. This sweeping generisation is quite harsh, especially when new bands are trying to break into the music industry, just as Young Statues are with their self-titled release. It’s a release that, whilst not being perfect, shows real promise for a successful future.
