My Favorite Highway-How To Call A Bluff
With the re-issue of My Favorite Highway's debut album "How To Call A Bluff" last week, I thought it was only appropriate to blog about them.
The quartet have been stirring up some commotion in the record industry for some while as they recently signed to Virgin records.
Although I'm usually not for major record labels, I am in My Favorite Highway's case. Virgin records has given the band a chance to re-release their debut album that flew under the radar due to distribution difficulties.
The CD's 11 songs pave the way for one hell of a ride. Lead singer David Cook acts as the backbone of the band as his crystal-clear voice brings every song to the forefront as "How To Call A Bluff" proves to be a great first effort from these Virgina natives.
Songs like "Bittersweet Life" and "Steel City" bring out the emotional side of everyone. Lyrics that produce witty, yet sappy punches are plentiful on these two, and every song for that matter.
My Favorite Highway are heading out on tour all summer long with bands such as: Ace Enders, The Cab, Person L(new band from Kenny Vasoli of The Starting Line), The Secret Handshake and much more. Make sure to keep an eye on their dates as they surely will be stopping near your hometown.
