Highway Cross-Open Eyes 7" (2014)

Country: USA
Genre: Punk, Garage Rock
Label: Cricket Cemetery
Tracks: 5
Length: 10.0'

Highway Cross is a four piece punk/garage rock band from Arlington, Virginia who formed in 2011.  I'm extremely stoked to review this 7" because Highway Cross features members of Triac and Cloak/Dagger, who were one of my favorite punk bands in the last two years.  Highway Cross play an extremely tight style of punk and garage rock that calls to mind bands such as Drive Like Jehu, Hot Snakes, and Obits.  Since their inception in 2011, Highway Cross have two releases under their belts which includes a four song 7" titled Locked In, which was released in November of 2011 and their latest five song 7" titled Open Eyes, which was released via Cricket Cemetery records on October 31st, 2014.  On their latest 7", Highway Cross offer up five songs frenetic, blistering, tense, yet slightly melodic punk/garage rock.  Overall, Open Eyes is really energetic, tight, and catchy as fuck  Seriously, I can't get enough of this 7"!  Highly recommended!  Enjoy!
