Here's what I can tell you for sure - the new Quicksand is good.
It's only one song, so I'm not going to throw down 1,000 words, but rest assured that this is some good stuff. I'm old enough now to wax nostalgic about not just Quicksand, but also Rival Schools and I'm hearing a lot of both bands in both similar and contrasting perspectives.
I wish the album had released in the summer. Bands like Quicksand, Rival Schools, Stavesacre and other classic 1990s-early 2000s heavy alternative always make for my favorite summer soundtracks, but this song makes me happy enough to wait for the album that hopefully delivers as much as this first taste promises it should.
