Pistol Day Parade: Burn review

New bands are emerging virtually every minute. These days it’s hard to tell which ones are worth a listen and which ones are just a bunch of guys playing generic music and trying to get their 15 minutes of fame. Pistol Day Parade are not one of those bands- not by a long shot, and their debut full-length, Burn, is a true testament to that. Now, there’s nothing groundbreaking or game-changing with Burn but it strikes a chord within you while you’re listening to it. Some records have that something special where you just can’t help but listen to it over and over again. Pistol Day Parade have obviously put their hearts and souls into this record and it shows. They touch on a lot of personal issues and topics throughout the record and fans will immediately relate to the vast majority of the album. You have your entire life to write your first album. You have significantly less time to write the follow-up and if the guys in Pistol Day Parade can put out a sophomore album like their debut, they’ll be on the track to the top.
