Hailing from Louisville, KY, via Charlestown, IN, Days of the New is a teenage alt-rock quartet that slams out heavy, post-grunge rock with the force of a group twice its age. Frontman Travis Meeks was only 17 at the time the group recorded its eponymous debut, but his songs aren't light, naïve things -- they are laden with heavy meanings and throttling chords. Occasionally, Meeks reaches too hard -- every so often, his vocals and lyrics strain to hit their mark -- but he shows promise, and he's backed with a band that can hammer away such slight flaws. Days of the New isn't a perfect album, but its best moments prove that teenagers can rock as hard, and with as much purpose, as adults.

If anyone out there is looking for straight forward raw acoustic sound this is the album. Travis Meeks is a genious when it comes to writing songs. And the videos are breath taking. By far the best ''unknowen'' group out there.
