Safety In Numbers
In the Key of D (Triple Crown Records)

By: Mike SOS

Hot Rod Circuit main man Andy Jackson and his side project Safety in Numbers have released its sophomore effort, a 10-track offering that sounds a lot more dangerous than anything put out by HRC. In the Key of D takes a page out of the Boxcar Racer/ Blink 182 playbook by exploring a darker, heavier side without sacrificing those big punk hooks that stick in your head for days on end. Tracks like "Cause and Effect" have a cutting guitar tone that Page Hamilton might be proud of, while other tracks like "Temporary Lapse" delves into the gritty underbelly of post-hardcore much like the melding of Avail and Quicksand. Retaining melody while putting a death grip on the jugular, this release is a good indication that Safety in Numbers are on the verge of carving a solid niche for itself.
