HER FINAL EXPENSES / I’M A TRAINER by RESTLESS STREETS (Self-released)
Restless Streets is a charismatic metalcore band based out of the Albany, NY area who are in the midst of recording a follow-up to their Emergencies EP from last year. Judging by what is heard on the recent two-song demo, these guys mean business and are ready to break it into the big time.
Her Final Expenses is a ferocious effort, showing a band approaching the height of their creativity as a collective unit. Brutal yet melodic, the song is guaranteed to garner the Streets a good deal of attention and respect. I’m A Trainer, I’ll Train Her further demonstrates the band’s knack for combining infectious melodies with an all-out assault to the senses. These two tracks possess a good deal of promise, and you can bet we’ll be hearing a lot more from Restless Streets in the future. These guys would make a perfect addition to a label such as Rise or Victory Records.
The Restless Streets lineup consists of Logan Carpenter- writer/vocals, Brandon John-Lead guitar, Brian Nellis-Keys/Programming, Kyle Carpenter-Guitar, Chris Mccabe-Bass/Harmonies, and Nick Dumar-drums . If you are a fan of bands such as Underoath and The Devil Wears Prada, be sure to roam these Restless Streets and prepare to meet up with your next favorite band.
Restless Streets has shared the stage with everyone from Thursday to Avenged Sevenfold, and will be opening for Silverstein on March 26th at Valentine’s in Albany, NY.
