Cross-Check – “Overwhelming Odds”

Cross-Check have released an ep filled with catchy hardcore songs channeling the spirit and sound of old-school hardcore and some updated demos of older songs on Overwhelming Odds.

Southern California has produced a lot of noteworthy hardcore bands and over the years has been fertile ground for bands producing aggressive, fast, catchy music that packs a punch.  Add Overwhelming Odds to that list… while this is their debut for Thumper Punk Records, they do appear to have some older material from 2017 in an album called  Drop the Puck, which is another place to find versions of the demo tracks on Overwhelming Odds. For Overwhelming Odds, the band recorded with Nick Coffey and the songs were mixed by Zach Bridier at Captive Portal Music with Sef Idle at SImpul Studios handling the mastering.

Hardcore is short supply these days, with most of it being supplied by the old guard bands like Sick of It All, Slapshot, Agnostic Front, and Madball, so to get another band to review, especially a good one, makes for a great day.  My biggest issue with Overwhelming Odds is that I want more.  The first five songs are fully done tracks with the second five on the ep being demos and true to form, the whole thing clocks in around 20 minutes.

Indie Vision Music and Thumper Punk Records are proud to present the 3rd Ep set of songs from Florida transplant by way of New Jersey, pop-punk-rock-ska hybrid act – No Lost Cause (NLC). This new Ep is titled “P.S.” and is a loving reminder of God’s love for us all and the hope that flows from that instant connection one has with the Lord. This hybrid style of music will please fans new and old to those great sounds of bands like Goldfinger, Blink-182, Pennywise, Slick Shoes, Fireflight, RED, and even 311. When we say DIFFERENT, we mean it!

Grab this fantastic Ep from IVM and Thumper Punk on December 6th. Ep will be available on both CD and Digital from both places (see links below).

“The P.S. ep is probably the most eclectic release I’ve put together up til now. I have a wide variety of music I really enjoy and I think a lot of that came out on this ep more than it has before. There’s punk, ska, rock, hard rock… The songs were all written as I was going through certain things and I just kind of wrote what I felt like God had to say about them.” Rob Jensen / No Lost Cause
