Crown The Empire continue to stroll along into metalcore pedestrianism, and it’s truly hard to care.
Between inherent singer-songwriter limitations and the cloying potential of his work in Mayday Parade, Derek Sanders’ newest solo EP struggles to do much of anything at all.
You Me At Six begin to get back on track with some more explosive alt-rock, even if the issues from their most recent endeavours still persist alongside it.
