STEADFAST – ‘Transmitters’
‘Transmitters’ is the debut album from Houston based band, STEADFAST. It is a hard-hitting punk rock release that will have you reaching for the repeat button.
The title track opens the release. It is a driving anthem of a song which instantly compels the listener. The vocals are filled with character and charm throughout. We adore ‘Just Disbelievers’, the opening is gentler to the tracks that have come before, and soon evolves into STEADFAST’s trademark sound. ‘My conviction’ is another stand out track. It has a gorgeous riff which is also a thoroughly addictive hook. ‘These Days’ closes the release with a melodic and driving nature. It is the perfect ending to leave the listener wanting more!
The band say, “Steadfast had its first spark in 2007 in Austin after vocalist/guitarist Jason Bancroft disbanded his street punk band, Black Star Brigade, and created an early version of Steadfast. After opening for The Unseen and A Wilhelm Scream, Bancroft relocated to Houston. He put his folk-punkject, folk-punk band The Wealthy Beggars, on hold in 2018 and reformed Steadfast with a who’s who of the Houston scene.”
“Enlisting guitarist Travis Smith (The Wealthy Beggars), bassist Andrew Wupper (Texas Mod Crushers), and drummer Charlie Price (Next to Nothing, Monroe and Llorona). This time, the flame caught, and the band has been up and running ever since.”
STEADFAST is a passionate and driving band who are going to do big things this year. Their dedication and hard work are evident during ‘Transmitters’, and we very much look forward to hearing what they will do next.
