"DESTINED FOR ROCK RADIO!"

"Take Back Sunday" from Rally Car is one heavy
hitting song. Justin Wilkie on lead vocals along with
great guitars, bass, and drums is the sure fire
solution for your speakers. Play them loud! "Top of
the World" is another favourite of mine featuring
killer guitar riffs and great harmonies. Rally Car is
one sick band that is destined for rock radio and
campus radio across the country.
