New Music - We Were The States

I’ve been listening to this new album from We Were The States a lot lately. It’s called Believe The Thieves and it came out this week via Chicken Ranch Records. These 5 guys from Tennessee bring energy to spare to these 12 songs, and though it isn’t wowing me with originality, Believe the Thieves is a promising debut from a band firmly rooted in passionate, nervy modern rock - a la The Walkmen or The Strokes. No pretense to be found, just straight ahead rock n' roll. Remember that?
