There For Tomorrow’s new record, A Little Faster (Hopeless), hits stores on Tuesday, June 9th. That’s your cue to go out and get it, because their newest full-length album, following 2008’s self-titled EP, demonstrates the Orlando, Florida band’s talent to the fullest.
The record opens with ‘The Remedy’, an intense, rock-infused track that keeps listeners hooked from the very first guitar chords. Singer Maika Maile’s voice carries and is consistent throughout the whole record, tracks like ‘Backbone’ and ‘Just In Time’ showing his and the rest of There For Tomorrow’s ability to write and create songs that sound different, but are distinctly theirs.
The remainder CD is full of tracks that is sure to please: ‘I Can’t Decide’, a track that starts off acoustically and turns electric near the end slows things down a little bit, but it heads right into the powerful ‘Sore Winner’, which has a heavier tone to it.
The band has certainly grown from their previous EPs and first full-length, Points of Origin, and has developed a sound that cannot be mistaken.
When the entire CD ends, listeners are not left unsatisfied—if anything, they’re left waiting for more from this up and coming band. The only way to get more, though, is to catch them live so you can experience this band to the fullest.Haven’t seen them live yet? Be sure to catch them this summer on the Vans Warped Tour—they’re on every date, so be sure to head on over to the Smartpunk stage at some point in the day to catch their great set.
