Liberty N’ Justice is marking its 20th anniversary with this new release. Although celebratory, this album also marks time as the band finishes up work on The Cigar Chronicles, its ambitious 2 CD project. It’s easy to love an album with a song title like “Whack a Mole,” because, well, it just sounds ready-made for a rock album. This album’s title track is a kind of spiritual wake-up call put to music that works. Led by Justin Murr, Liberty N’ Justice is a winning throwback to a time when hard rock was as obsessed with melodies as it was with guitar licks and bass grooves. Speaking of throwbacks, the inclusion of an acoustic version of “Sin,” features the late Jani Lane of Warrant. It’s a sobering reminder that there are consequences to sin. Lane probably didn’t realize his own end would come quite so soon. Seriously, hell shouldn’t really ever be for breakfast anymore.

On Tigerwine's latest, 'Nothing is for You,' vocalist and lyricist Trobee departs from the band's last effort as a concept record to write about an array subjects. Notably, Trobee tackles his evolution from rigid belief system to an acceptance and understanding of other ideas: "Through touring and becoming close with those very people I was taught to be afraid of, I realized how untrue it all is."Full Feature More from Tigerwine
My Epic's last full-length album came out in 2013; despite a number of EPs along the way, the band's dedication to their craft, lyrical approach, and unyielding approach to let the music come naturally has made them critical darlings.
