These Streets Alone

Guitarist Ed Blanton, bass player Aaron Lawhon, and drummer Phil Capron released this well-polished and aggressively executed album over the winter. The self-produced (mostly by Blanton), 13 song collection falls right in line with a lot of the guitar-heavy, melodic "pop-punk" of late. There's an innocent toughness to the band's overall sound that propels many of their best songs, however. While many of the tunes - including the title track - owe a debt to the grinding four-chord rock sounds of Social D and Green Day and the hoarse vocal delivery of Joe Strummer, some grandiose standouts like the power anthem "The Opportune Moment" and the rapid-fire heartbreak song "Just Walk Away" really make their point. - T.

Feeling a bit camera shy


The new album "These Streets Alone" from the melodic punk trio Rosemont is more than just a collection of fourteen new songs, it's a statement "Rosemont has arrived!" The new album shows a much more mature band than their earlier releases, but retains all the energy, sincerity, and emotion present in all of their work.
"These Streets Alone" does more than just show the band's growth over the last year, but it's thundering drums, driving bass, and thick guitars create a wall of sound rivalling the band's heroes such as Green Day, Screeching Weasel, and MxPx. On top of that "These Streets Alone" will appeal to more than just the pop/punk faithful. The rocking "The Road More Travelled" and the acoustic "Standstill" showcase the album's widespread appeal.
Also the album gives the band a record they can finally call their own. Following the last record Ed Blanton found himself all alone and wondering whether or not to carry on. "Within a couple of days I found out that our drummer and bass player were both moving away, it was the worst feeling in the world" says vocalist Ed Blanton. The band did carry on for a time with a temporary lineup, but soon the band was reformed with Aaron Lawhon returning to bass duties and newbie Phil Capron taking the seat behind the drumkit. With the lineup solidified at last the band starting working on the new album, this time with a new approach.
"This time around we decided to do almost the entire record on our own. That way we could take as long as we want and do it our way" Ed commented. Despite, or maybe because of, the DIY approach "These Streets Alone" has a raw tone to it that you just don't hear much anymore in the modern music world.
The new record is the latest accomplishment for a band that keeps achieving new goals. Within the last year the band has toured from Miami, Florida all the way up to Delaware, received local and regional radio play, tv and print attention, headlined the largest club in their hometown, and all while holding full time jobs or college schedules.
Soon the band may be able to realize their dream of playing music for a living. For Rosemont it's not about the money or the fame, it's about playing great music every chance they get and the friends they make along the way.
