Wowsers! Where did this Hostage Life band come from? This is really surprising stuff! Catchy, sing song melodic Punk ala latter day Bad Religion, Face To Face, Strung Out or even Alkaline Trio make this highly listenable. I don't know how I got this CD, as the band hails from Toronto, Ontario, up in the Great White North part of North America known as Canada. Tight as fuck, toe tapping, happy go lucky Punk music. I like the lead vocals. Hostage Life got a good sound. Interesting drum work, crunchy guitar riffs, lots of O.C. Rikk Agnew harmonic octave solos, and what I think are some lyrics that are not trodding the same old boards as everybody else makes this an interesting tease as to what the band is all about. Hostage Life. Check them out.
