The band continues their musical journey in the same direction by delivering some quality melodic punk rock tunes highly influenced by bands such as Hot Water Music, The Lawrence Arms, Red City Radio, Iron Chic, RVIVR, Burning Heads or perhaps Bad Religion. By implementing straightforward mid-tempo rhythms played by the skillful drummer, accompanied by pleasantly warm-sounding basslines, ultra-melodic guitar dualities comprised of four-chord technicalities and an impressive progressive guitar fills separated in wisely placed sections, The Rebel Assholes are dealing with this particular genre like professionals and their skills are undoubtfully intertwined by some smart moves which are more than hearable on this EP. By simply taking a listen to compositions such as opening Six Fit Under or highly energetic Heads On Pikes, slowing down and getting familiar with the downtempo’s of A Needle In A Haystack, feeling melancholic by impressive melodies of Dysphoria or dealing with a great dosages of massively energetic A New World In Our Hearts (featuring Dani Llamas of GAS Drummers); The Rebel Assholes are leading you through the vast space of brilliant lyrics, deliberately crossed with great portions of high-quality punk rock music you’ll fall in love with after the first listening.
