While admittedly Banquets was originally formed for “just fun” by a group of friends, the group’s approach to punk rock is a breath of fresh air in a far-too-crowded scene. Banquets’ debut flashes some mighty impressive songwriting and a sharp, melodic ear. Driving guitars ring out over tuneful vocals and a pounding rhythm section. Of course all of this should come as little surprise given the band’s extensive pedigree. Banquets lead singer Travis Omilian was the original singer for Let Me Run and other members have played in bands such as Static Radio NJ, The Stand In, and The Banner. Their past experiences have obviously served them well on their debut effort. Banquets’ rustic, catchy songs should have fans of anthemic, melodic punk rock drooling for more.
