Punknews Records alumnus Ryan’s Hope released this five-song EP in early 2008, and then re-released it later that year with two additional songs as a free download from their website. Any fan of their past records or melodic skatepunk in general would be well-advised to give this release a whirl, because since their last full-length, 2006's Apocalypse in Increments, the band has progressed both musically and in their ability to hit the listener with a blast of catchy breakdowns and sing-along choruses before the listener even knows what the fuck they just heard. While some might define the band’s sound as melodic hardcore, the riffs and bridges are too fast for the average hardcore band, and the genre could be more appropriately classified as tight, blistering speed-punk that ventures into hardcore territory with both the sneering vocals and the rocking guitar breakdowns.
