Released by Rebellion records in 2005.
A very unique band from California consisting of five former marines. One of those bands where a cathegory is hard to set. Its punkrock mixed with Oi!,blues and even a bit HC-downbeat on some occasions. What relly made this band stand out was the singer Erickson J. Barnes which had a voice that i never heard in this genre before. He gives me an early hardrockvibe on some songs which reminds me of Bon Scott's AC/DC.
This is the only real releas eby the band except for a cover of Johnny Cash's "Dont take you guns to town" on the 2006 Dutch dedication album Man in black.
The album has some weak spots but the good ones makes you forget that.
Favourite tracks are Tonight, Realistic, That kind of courage (balladic bluespunk track) & On all sides that makes me question why theres so other few skinhead bands out there testing the boundaries.
Some of the members went on to start the band Johnny Poison & The American Whiskey Runners and even though the band is on ice for the moment there has been talk about recording new material.
