This will be right up your tree if you're into catchy Rock with a Punk edge and some risqué lyrics – go and enjoy.

Los Angeles Rockers Warner Drive return with their fourth opus '...Till The Wheels Fall Off'. Their debut record was actually released eleven years ago and was produced by Mike Clink who just so happened to also be at the helm of 'Appetite For Destruction'! They have toured intensely over the past few years with the likes of Jet, CKY, Danko Jones, Ratt and Papa Roach, amongst others, and have honed their style.

If you like ballads and meaningful lyrics then stay well clear! I must admit I wasn't too enamoured with the album on first listening, but with repeated plays, this raucous long player (actually it's ten tracks clock in at just under thirty-four minutes) has grown on me. Opener 'My Devotion' has a kind of Rockabilly vibe to it and gets your feet tapping, and to be honest, most parts of your body shaking vigorously! If you're a fan of the aforementioned Danko Jones then this quintet should be right up your street.

Vocalist Jonny Law, at times, sounds like Shinedown's Brent Smith and sings powerfully throughout. The album is full of energy and you can easily join in singing along to 'Don't Give Up' and 'Drop Dead Gorgeous' which has hints of Green Day and Sum 41 with ferocious guitar work from Ryan Harris and Candice Levinson. The rhythm section comprising of drummer Jonny Udell and bassist Elvis James keep the tunes taut and occasionally add a catchy groove here and there. First single 'Karma's A Bitch' has an infectious chorus and should have the kids (and a few adults) jumping up and down at their gigs! 'LA Psycho Chic' contains plenty of neat guitar work and catchy hooks with 'Never Gonna Win' following in the same vein.

'Anthem Of The Douche' (great name for a song) has a Gaelic undercurrent with a healthy dose of Punk and Pop and some really funny lyrics – check them out! Album closer 'You Make Me Smile' has some nice harmonies and is slightly slower paced; it's a nice contrast to the furious music that has preceded it.

This will be right up your tree if you're into catchy Rock with a Punk edge and some risqué lyrics – go and enjoy.
