Ten Foot Pole
Bad Mother Trucker (Victory Records)

Their first post-Epitaph release, Bad Mother Trucker finds Ten Foot Pole trying to fit in with their new label, Victory Records. Pushing their pop-punk to the limit, they drop the Southern California glow Epitaph is known for and adhere to a tougher edge courtesy of the Victory label. The result is a less melodic, less infectious, but equally rocking, if not more powerful sound that, although sounds very similar track to track, still rocks you plenty good.
