The Status: So This Is Progress

The Status
So This Is Progress
Doghouse Records [2008]

Fire Drills Review:
I don't think there will ever be time where we don't need the power pop emo rock bands like Atlanta's The Status because no matter how you slice it - they are catchy as hell. The band was previously touted in Alternative Press as one of the top unsigned bands of 2007 until the perfect label Doghouse Records picked them up for their debut. So This Is Progress has it all from the loud and soft guitars, layered harmonies that sell themselves and pounding drums keeping you right in beat as you hit repeat for another spin because you really can't go wrong!

Key Track: "Perfect Day"

Band With Similar Fire: All-American Rejects
