RIDGEMONT are a four-piece punk band from Allston, Massachusetts, and they released their fourteen song debut full-length, Colder Days. The band plays catchy, pop punk with gruff vocals and lots of energy.
With fast-paced songs, thick bass, great guitar leads, pounding drums and those gruff vocals, the band hits the mark every time. Songs that are short and to the point, no time for filler, and enough hooks to catch a thousand fish, this is one tight album. As you listen to the album, the songs just keep getting better and get stuck in your head. There isn’t one song or group of songs that stand out…the whole album stands out from the crowded playing field of mediocre bands playing this style of music. The album also comes with a great booklet that has a ton of stuff to read in it as well as the lyrics.
You need this album…really, you do. It’s a pleasure to get something like this and restore my faith in the old punk rock. Do yourself a favor and get this, and get a copy for a friend so that they can have good music with them when you’re hanging out with them.
