CD Review: CT's Hostage Calm Mixes Punk With Pop On New Album

Connecticut punk band Hostage Calm returns to the forefront of the punk movement with their latest release, "Please Remain Calm." Their sound on this latest release weaves together catchy guitar riffs with great melodies with an up-tempo, rebellious rhythm section.

The album kicks things off with "On Both Eyes" as the band brings a more mainstream sound into the mix. Their music is so contagious that you find yourself singing along to the chorus after only a couple listens. The band's raw energy shines through on "Woke Up Next To A Body," before doing a total turnaround on the acoustic love ballad "The M Word." Hostage Calm show off their harmonizing skills on "Patriot" before closing the album with the build-up tempo of "One Last Salute."

Hostage Claim are beginning their tour on October 17 in Cleveland, OH before hitting their home state of Connecticut on the 21st. The tour will last until the beginning of December so do yourself a favor and check them out. For more information, check out
