Rating: 3.5/5

 
 

 

 

Rochester, New York based punk band Such Gold have now been around for seven years, to date they have released two full length albums and numerous singles, EP’s and splits. Their sound has constantly evolved over the years, as demonstrated on their excellent contribution to the Great Thieves Escape split EP earlier this year. They have joined forces with Bird Attack Records to reissue Pedestals, the band’s second EP that was originally released in 2010. The reissue features all six tracks from the original EP, along with all their songs from the split EP’s they released with Into It. Over It. and A Loss For Words.

For those of you, like me, who missed the Pedestals EP first time round this is the perfect chance to catch up. Opening track Cut Rides is a short brutal introduction. The remaining five tracks that formed the original EP are fine blasts of melodic hardcore. Whilst the original tracks that comprised Pedestals are fine, its the bonus tracks that make this EP for me. They show that Such Gold aren’t just one trick hardcore ponies, don’t misinterpret this, the four bonus tracks are all fine examples of hard edged melodic hardcore, but they showcase a different dimension to their songwriting and delivery. The inclusion of these additional tracks adds depth and variety to what was a damn fine hardcore EP in it’s own right.

Sometimes it’s good to get the chance to revisit to roots of a band, and with the inclusion of four bonus tracks from two of their split EP’s this is the perfect opportunity to do this. If you like your melodic hardcore with a hard edged, yet melodic, delivery then this is a band you need to investigate, and now is as good a time as any to start. The Pedestals reissue will be released on CD, vinyl and digitally through Bird Attack Records on September 9th 2016.

You can pre order Pedestals here

Great Thieves Escape Split

Walk The Plank / No Fun / Such Gold / Harker

The Great Thieves Escape II

Flix Records / No Panic! Records
By

Rating: 4/5

 
 

 

 

 The Great Thieves Escape II is a multinational four way split single brought to you by Flix Records and No Panic! Records. It is comprised of four bands from the USA, Germany and the UK. I always view split EP’s as healthy competition between the bands involved, so let’s introduce the contenders.

First up is America’s Walk The Plank, they are a hardcore heavyweight who open with the excellent Dying On The Vine. It starts with an old school punk riff that suddenly breaks into brutal hardcore for the chorus, this is short, sharp and ferocious and is an impressive opening, and an early favourite. Germany’s No Fun are next on the bill and in a surprise move they bring us Cheesecake. This is a much poppier affair with a killer guitar riff and a great female lead vocal, this is a song that should have anyone with a pulse bouncing around the room. We’re back across the Atlantic again for New York’s Such Gold, who deliver a solid burst of melodic hardcore with the excellent Choosing Cages. Finally we come to last entrant in this four way fracas, the UK’s Harker deliver some hard edged melodic punk rock that will delight fans of the Alkaline Trio.

We’ve had two American heavyweights, a feisty Brit but in the end it is Germany’s No Fun who take this competition with a sucker punch, the judge denies that he was swayed by the promise of all the Cheesecake. As I’ve noted previously when reviewing split singles, they can be hit and miss affairs, that is certainly not the case on The Great Thieves Escape II. All four bands are excellent, but you’ll always end up with a favourite and who doesn’t love Cheesecake

The Great Thieves Escape II is available on a rainbow of limited edition coloured vinyl here.
