"TCounty Online - Zimri and Undermine the Common Review"

...Undermine the Common was the first band I saw. They are a young Rock Alternative band from Imperial, Pennsylvania. This is a three piece band with brothers Jarid Yankus on vocals and lead guitar and Josh Yankus on percussions. Filling in the rhythm on bass is Mike Lucente. The band is high energy, which reaches out and grabs your attention. The songs are all original which start you off easy and builds to a climatic breakdown of instrumental passion...Jarid, sporting the dreads, will change guitars as frequent as the tempo changes, which keeps the crowd on their feet and in the pit. Undermine the Common has played with national acts Edison Glass and Blindside...These young acts are breathing fresh sounds into a stale music world. I see a lot of bands locally and nationally and these two bands are stepping up to the challenge... - Hunter Morrison
