Art of Life
Artist: Fighting Jacks
Label: Tooth-and-Nail Records
Time: 12 tracks/47:49 min.
The Lindstrom brothers (Corey and Casey,) along with Mike Wright and Jon Sontag make up the punk-rock foursome the Fighting Jacks. By far the hardest-hitting band to come out of the South Bay since P.O.D., they signed with Tooth and Nail after about three years on the indie scene. Their head-nodding drums all too typical of punk-rock, too-good-to-be-true guitars, and catchy vocal melody, are sure to make their first signed album a breakaway success. Bringing a style with equal parts Pearl Jam, Foo Fighters, and Jimmy Eat World, The Dying Art of Life hit shelves on October twenty-first; bringing with it the kind of music that actually makes one think about life in postmodern culture.

The Fighting Jacks present
their debut disc on Tooth and Nail Records, and third disc as a band, aptly
named, The Dying Art of Life. The new record is a positive
lyrical blitzkrieg, musically combining influential bands like Denison
Marrs, Foo Fighters, and Sunny Day Real Estate to make it mainstream nu-hardcore
heavy with an emo appeal. Think of a lot of Denison Marrs, a punch to the
gut from the Foo Fighters, and then Sunny Day Real Estate steps in to break
up the fight.
