"CD Review: Hit Or Miss - Seasons Come And Go"

Hit Or Miss - Seasons Come And Go
2008, Hit Or Miss

Harrisburg, PA's Hit Or Miss combine the piano driven bravura of Ben Folds, the post-punk energy of early Green Day and the melodic sense of The Refreshments to deliver genre-bending post-punk pop delights. Their debut EP, 2008's Seasons Come And Go is a sonic treat and a great introduction to the band.

Hit Or Miss is Andy Zeller (vocals/guitar/piano), Travis Lehr (Drums) and Warren Gaughen (Bass). As a power trio Hit Or Miss manages to create a wall of sound much bigger than the collective part might seem to account for. Whether on the Foldsian Ifs, Ands or Buts; the straightforward rock of This Is My Life or the slow grind of Take It Slow, Hit Or Miss seem to be more the former than the latter. Hit Or Miss even seem to hit ballads solidly where they live, as shown on the track We Gave It All. By far the highlight of the disc is the track entitled "Acoustic Bonus". Taking away all distortion and effects just proves how talented Hit Or Miss really are.

Hit Or Miss is in a great position to keep pushing the envelope. With a full length release due in 2009, Hit Or Miss is a name you'll be hearing a lot about. For now, Seasons Come And Go is a great introduction!

Rating: 3.5 Stars (Out of 5)

Seasons Come and Go



The rock band Hit or Miss has seen a lot of early success. Their catchy lyrics and upbeat sound have been called a, "breath of fresh air in today's post-hardcore/emo era." Hit or Miss has grabbed hold of an old idea and revamped it in their own unique way by combining complex drum grooves, playful pianos and driving guitar riffs. Hit or Miss just may be the genre-bending upbeat sound we've been waiting for.

Hit or Miss was created when Andy Zeller (formerly of Wings Ripped Out) enlisted the services of long time friend and former bandmate, Travis Lehr (formerly of Ten Cent Story), to embark on a new endeavor. After struggling to get the band up and running for some time, Andy and Travis found the successful catalyst they needed by recruiting Warren Gaughen (formerly of Punctuated Equilibrium and Buck Wild) as a bassist to round out their lineup. It took only two days for Hit or Miss to put together their debut EP, Seasons Come and Go, which features six original tracks. With the overwhelmingly positive reaction the band received after their CD release party, regional venues were lining up to have them play. It wasn't long until Hit or Miss was opening for several national acts including The AKAs (are everywhere) and Dizmas.

Originally from the Harrisburg, Pennsylvania area, Hit or Miss is currently touring the Northeast, and is in the process of writing a full length album which they hope to have completed in early 2009.
