RENO DIVORCE – ‘Ship Of Fools’ EP Review

RENO DIVORCE – Ship Of Fools

reno-divorceIn 2011, 2012 and 2013 Reno Divorce were named the best Punk band in Denver by Westword Magazine. The trio are influenced by bands like Social Distortion, Adolescents or Bad Religion but have their own special take on the genre.

They have just released a six song EP on Wolverine records and Ship Of Fools opens with the melodic, powerful and fast paced California with a distinctly Social Distortion vibe. On She’s In Love With The Avenue, Reno Divorce showcase some serious pop-punk chops with some nifty guitar work and a Gaslight Anthem meets Bad Religion sound.

The title track, Ship Of Fools opens with a super monster riff that leads into a chunky song with some gravelly vocals and strong melody throughout. Reno Divorce are accessible without pandering to a pop/punk formula, they display an authenticity and knack for a great song.

Fell In Love Once catapults along at a manic drum fueled pace and is bound to get the pit slamming whereas Surf And Turf is driven by some excellent guitar work with some compelling riffs – loved this track! The band close the set of six songs with Need To Know a rabble rousing, punch the air anthem that was a perfect ending to a strong package.
