WIREDOGS is the empowered musical voice of a youth culture that is seeking a new rebellion.The music is loud, honest and abrasive. The stories expel off their tongues with conviction and truth. WIREDOGS is an earnest cry for those seeking more, and their message is:
We are the authors of the future. We are the architects of a time regarded as still to come. And we will rise like the sands of the desert. Rise like the waves of the ocean and the winds of the mountains. And you will hear us. You will see us. You will feel our words in your bones, in your very soul. For we are the future. WE are the future!

"Hello, Mother" and "The Road" begins with a more atmospheric tone before the band roughens up the edges with fuzzy melodies and desperate vocals that, while resembling a less distorted and warped Guitar Wolf, retain an almost erupting emotional delivery. "I Knew Me" and "The Axe" are an apt pairing, with acoustic guitar intros leading into clipped electric rhythms and the same emotionally ragged singing. Closer "Black Hands" is a lot like an amped-up Hanoi Rocks song."

On their debut album, “Authors,” the trio of Austin Searcy, Dan Aid and Mark Hibl make expertly written, tightly arranged, precisely played punk music with very few frills. Taking their direction from classic UK punk (think Stiff Little Fingers and even, to a certain extent, the Clash) as well as from like-minded Americans (Social Distortion and Bad Religion come immediately to mind), the threesome hammers out heartfelt anthems that are as ardently angry as they are contagiously catchy. From start to finish, “Authors” — perfectly produced by J.P. Manza of Take to the Oars — takes loving hold of your throat and doesn’t let go

Whether it is a newly formed band of veterans, or a kid writing songs in his bedroom, their sound seems to be one that comes at just the right time, with the right balance of what worked in the past, and what is fresh in the current scene. In the case of Denver locals, the Hate, the creation of their edgy and unique sound came out of necessity

The Denver trio, which released its new album at the hi-dive this past June, blew through its songs quickly, cranking up the Marshall stacks and playing heartfelt, grimy punk songs.
