They're back! New album "catalyst" is out soon, and this is the first single to be released from it. It's typical catchy, melodic pop-punk that you'd expect from NFG, but it's slightly heavier than previous album Sticks and stone's tracks(a theme that apparantly runs with the new album too). This is no bad thing as the song is still typical NFG and sounds more like their older work from their self titled (and in my opinion better) album.

I've never done one of those rate every track reviews before... but this album certainly deserves it. Here's a rundown... 1.

I first heard this band described as 'the hottest new band from America'.I then tried my hardest not to like them.However i failed and bought this album which is a fine effort. The first track is a superb mixture of pop-rock with a fantastic melody for the chorus.The second track nicely follows with a slightly more mellow approach showing the talent of the lead singer. The album maintains a very similar tempo, and occasionaly repeats certain rifts which can annoy. On the whole a good album throughout showing what a good US band can do.
