"The Warhawks Play Free Show At KFN Tonight"

Straight outta Gloucester City, New Jersey comes the Warhawks, a gritty, crunchy guitar-centric indie-rock band with an anthemic edge that’s perhaps a more emo version of Kings of Leon (but probably a lot better than that would suggest — our point-of-comparison machine is a little sluggish this Monday morning). The quartet has an excellent new EP just out entitled Great Waveriders of the 20th Century, which you can stream or download right here for free. - Philadelphia Weekly Blogs

"The Warhawks Want To Be Rock and Roll Friends"

We think of The Warhawks as South Jersey’s answer to Kings of Leon. And hey, that’s not an insult, music snobs. Sure, KoL’s “Use Somebody” is a trite mess, but if you think back to before they were overblown and overplayed, the Tennessee troopers could kick it with the best of the gritty American rockers.

Likewise, The Warhawks - a four piece from Gloucester City - are the real deal. Genuine and unpretentious, these four young dudes have a knack for 90s hooks, tight arrangements and making loud amplifiers do their bidding. They blew Jake Rabid and myself away with their Local Tracks Session this past Sunday night, so much so that we want to hear it again.

Here’s an exclusive download of their performance of “South River” from the session they did for Y Rock Local Tracks

Born from the riverside town of Gloucester City, NJ, The Warhawks have been gaining attention for the past two years with their unique style of rock and roll. Loud and straight forward, it is the way rock was meant to be played. Drawing inspiration from the music of the past and present, The Warhawks are set on defining the music of the future. Their songs are products of the places they've been, the people they've met, and the lives they've lead.
