Southern Californian based band Nations Afire have just released their new album, The Ghosts We Will Become. The four-piece rock outfit is no stranger to the Southern Californian music scene, with the band consisting of members from many other influential So-Cal bands. Vocalist and guitarist Nik Hill and bassist Brett Rasmussen are best known for playing in hardcore band Ignite. Guitarist Chris Chasse has spent time with Rise Against, while drummer Todd Hennig has performed on three Death by Stereo albums.
Opening track I Am an Army starts the album off strongly and Even the Blackest Heart Still Beats slows down the pace midway through, but it’s not for long as they return to their punk rock roots for the rest of the record.
Unsurprisingly, the album is reminiscent of Rise Against and other bands, like The Offspring and Anti-Flag.
