Knucklehead Hearts On Fire

Knucklehead Hearts On Fire
Hammering away for 15 years, Calgary, AB's Knucklehead have made an imprint on punk from an undeniably unsung position. Refusing to relent despite a lack of appreciation, their mission to incite the raising of pint glasses by fellow working-class dudes in moments of revelry has never ceased, reaching its finest moment with Hearts On Fire. Featuring Bouncing Souls' lilting, anthemic delivery and melodies stamped upon Bad Religion's pointed vision, this is one catchy affair. Additionally, everything is enmeshed with the fire of '77 punk, the loose attack of formative street punk and even touches of oi to keep the album moving. It's a rich mixture that manages to become smoother, more distinct and standalone with each successive release. Hearts On Fire is most certainly the apex of their continual evolution and undying spirit; it's the most accessible, albeit energized, Knucklehead release to date. (Stumble)
