Bold and abrasive, this punk-fueled trio led by C.G. Valez get to their hooks quickly and invest everything in an effusive, red-zone vocal attack. Theirs is an appropriately ragged sound that values authenticity––and tight-as-a-gnat’s-ass musicianship––over slickness. “New Blood” is a solid outing, hitting all the pop-punk buttons, though we feel it could climax a little bigger than it does. The band reveals its sappy side on “Dear Mary,” with lyrics that are oh-so- cheesy, making the song an unfortunate misfire. Much better is “Your Eyes,” which has a brisk beat, tough punk-rock guitars and quick, nimble drumming. Asteroid Falls’ ability to marshal an abundance of energy make this band Warped Tour worthy.
