They're back!! Sugarcult has officially made an appearance
on the music scene once again. With their newest release Lights
Out we're getting a chance to see exactly what these guys
are made of. They're made of: Hard Rock, an Alternative soul and
some deep down Punkness.
If I said I was excited when I saw the new Sugarcult album in
the package from my editor that would be a serious understatement.
I was ecstatic! I had no idea these guys were releasing another
album. Having already been a fan of their previous albums: Palm
Trees And Power Lines and their debut release Start Static,
I was really looking forward to seeing what they came up with
this time. The newest release takes the band to a whole new level.
Right off the bat, I love the first song - well, second song after
the intro "Lights Out" - "Dead Living" is
an excellent rock song; surging with powerful guitar riffs it
brings a sound similar to that of fellow alternative rockers Lostprophets.
With lyrics like "I can't take it/ it's just a paycheck/making
arrangements" Tim (lead vocals) really gets to tell
us what's on his mind. For a little more upbeat sound, you should
take a listen to "Do It Alone"; it's one of those feet-tapping
poppy songs where the chorus "I don't want to do it alone/I'm
begging you/I don't want to do it alone" gets perpetually
stuck in your head. It also brings me back to some earlier Sugarcult
favorites like "Memory" or "Champagne" from
Palm Trees And Power Lines. They've even thrown in a little
80's influence or maybe some Rock Kills Kid with the song
"Made A Mistake". Don't worry, in true Sugarcult style,
they've also stuck in some more mellow songs. So if you like songs
such as: "Head Up" and "Counting Stars" from
their previous album, then you'll enjoy "Shaking" and
Well, they've done it again, and luckily for all those fans
out there, they're not wasting any time getting on the road
to promote their new album. This appearance may be a little
different than the last two, but trust me, whether you're already
a fan or not this album will reel you in.
