This is Oakland, CA’s The Matches debut CD. The band sent Epitaph their homemade CD and the label was hooked, and so Epitaph is re-releasing it. They used to do webcasts and hold shows DIY-style and hundreds people attended, so they definitely have a following already.

From listening to this CD for the first time, the band has some very catchy songs and I’m sure this CD will sell a lot over at Epitaph. I bet when The Matches make their second full length CD, it will be a lot better. I just get that sense that this band will continue to grow and mature with each release. But this CD is still pretty rockin’!

Bottom Line: If catchy melodic punk is yer thang, no diggidy.
