(record review)WE WERE SHARKS-“Lost Touch”(Victory Records)

We Were Sharks are a six piece melodic punk band hailing from Ottawa, Canada and this is their new album that came out on mighty Victory Records.

The band formed in 2011.and since then they have gathered a lot of miles of relentless touring and playing their tunes to armies of fans. Since then they have released one album and one ep and this is their new full length album first for Victory. The album contains 10 tracks of melodic pop punk with energetic drumming, anthemic choruses and excellent harmonies and melodic guitar hooks. The lyrics deal with becoming alienated and disconnected from this hectic modern world, relationships, losing friendship and similar themes. Vocalist Randy Frobel sings excellently and the production of the album, courtesy of  Silverstein guitarist Paul Marc Rousseau and producer Sam Guaiana, is just the way I love it. Naturally, I am the fan of the faster and more straightforward hardcorish songs so “Ashley” and “Late Bloomer”, the latter featuring guest vocals by Ollie Baxxter of Broadside are my favourites on this album. The guys are starting the new tour, so get the album, learn the lyrics, go to the gig and sing along.
