Please Mr. Gravedigger Here's to the Life of the Party

Hailing from the same part of the world (San Diego, CA) as bands like Fishwife, Tanner, No Knife, Drive Like Jehu and Rocket From the Crypt has profoundly influenced the music of this As I Lay Dying offshoot. Combining the better elements of garage punk, screamo, angular art rock and 1980s new wave, PMG's debut is a blistering blast of hardcore energy, punk rock angst and synth pop that is significant not only for its unbridled enthusiasm but its originality. Life of the party indeed! (Pluto)
