CD Review: Social Code Delivers "Rock 'N' Roll"

Canadian rockers Social Code bring "Rock 'N' Roll" to the US in the form of the band's debut album. Produced by John Travis (Buckcherry, Kid Rock) the album was recorded during the cold Edmonton winter and will be released on March 23.

The lyrics of the album's opener "Rock 'N' Roll" foreshadows what Social Code feels the music population has been asking for as lead singer Travis Nesbitt states that he "wants to hear some rock 'n' roll" and believe me, they came to deliver. The drums of Ben Shilabeer and bass of Logan Jacobs is what powers these high-energy songs like "Nothing Left To Lose", "Buy Buy Baby" and " You Never Know What You Got Until It's Gone". The albums first single "Satisfied" displays the band's potential of giving the listener a classic rocker with lyrics to sing/shout along to. Guitarist Morgan Gies does not over perform by demanding the spotlight, but instead gives the songs "Perfect Grave" and "Real Girl" it's original sound. The power-ballad "Stay" shows the softer side of the band's song-writing and performing. "I'm Not OK" is a rock anthem for the broken hearted, while "Too Late For Tomorrow" demands you to take action now.

The band recently toured with the likes of Theory of a Deadman, Buckcherry, Finger Eleven and are eager to get back on the road to promote their latest release "Rock 'N' Roll". For videos, tour dates and more please visit
