Summary:

After leaving their former label, the Dallas, Texas-based Dead Words has landed on their feet. There isn’t a lot of material on Hey Rockers, but the band’s punk heart bleeds through the quick jabs of the tracks. It reminds me of the first time I heard 1,039 Smoothed Out Slappy Hours, one of Green Day’s first albums. As history would show, it wasn’t nearly as good as Dookie, but it was an album Green Day had to make to get to Kerplunk! to get to Dookie. Hopefully, Dead Words has the same kickstart some of those other lucky punks have taken advantage of.

I’m glad I made these songs, no matter how personal they are."
