Houston Calls All

In 2003, a new band from New Jersey formed and soon sign to a record label. Does this sound familiar…Well it should because The Early November and Senses Fail did the same thing when signing to Drive Thru Records. Well  Houston Calls actually signed with Rushmore Records which is a subsidiary of DTR. The release of their debut album, A Collection of Short Stories, a short 11-track disc, was filled with pop-punk anthems like “Exit, Emergency” and “Bob and Bonnie”. Each song was exemplified with strong electro keys and great punk riffs that had fans following one by one. I myself could not stop listening to the whole album for the longest time.  They actually perform a great cover of the Counting Crows’ song “Einstein on the Beach”.

On this past Tuesday the Oct. 14th, 2009, marked the release of their long awaited sophomore album “The End of an Error”. The project has been long overdue since a new member, Jose, joined the group and the band officially is signed with Drive Thru Records. The new album is highlighted with two songs which are up on their MySpace named “Modest Manifesto” and  “Life Won’t Wait”. The album picks up where their debut left off. Maybe DTR was right when they told to re-think the album because it resulted in another great album. So if you like band like bands like Panic! or Hellogoodbye, this is definitely the band for you.
