CD Review: Surrender The Fall-Burn In The Spotlight(Rum Bum Records)

With the opening notes and the singer bringing it on strong the first song "Love Hate Masquerade" letting us, the listener know that we are in for some kick-ass music.

Press Release:

Memphis hard rockers Surrender The Fall are set to take to the road beginning July 21 with Nonpoint and Redline Chemistry.  These dates follow the band's successful appearance at Rockapalooza alongside artists such as Candlebox, Saliva and Mushroomhead as well as recent outings with Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, Almost Kings and Eye Empire.

Surrender The Fall's debut album, Burn in the Spotlight was released in September of 2012 via upstart label Rum Bum Records and features the Rock Radio hits "Love Hate Masquerade" and "Some Kind of Perfect," garnering accolades from Billboard ("Surrender The Fall's stock in trade is pounding pedal-through-the-floor rock, a loud abundance that includes first single "Love Hate Masquerade"), MTV Buzzworthy ("Clearly, Surrender The Fall has learned from their forefathers -- and they wanna ROCK. Which, I might mention, they totally do and they totally do well"), and All Access ("STF is a Memphis rock band that does it right with straight ahead, no hold's barred rock n roll").

Then you have the second song that is more of a ballad there are a number of great songs here and I can see why they are getting more mainstream attention congrats guys, good old Rock 'n' Roll.

See them on tour if you live in any of these areas in the U.S.

After a couple of spins of this record I have really enjoyed hearing this , this is one of the more commercial albums I have heard this year but this is great Rock n Roll.
Plus I really dig their logo.

Thank you for reading this
