Editorial Reviews

Plagued by the fallout of his own actions, Shakespeare s Hamlet cleared his conscience for just a moment, declaring, there is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so. DEATH IN THE PARK is determined to prove that being in touch with your bad side isn t always such a bad thing. Driven by personal tales of tragedy and heartbreak, this pop-punk band, based in Montgomery, Alabama, has tapped into that yearning all of us experience; needing to see our bad decisions turn out for the better. This punk quartet brings new light to the familiar genre, unafraid to take the next step, to stretch themselves musically, even in the face of creative crisis. The heartfelt lyrics and infectious melodies set them apart from the gathering mediocrity of the airwaves. DEATH IN THE PARK consists of Andy Jackson (vocals & guitar), Ronnie Gardner (guitar), Jake Sloan (bass), Derrick Karg (guitar), and Aaron Holmes (drums). Lead by vocalist Andy Jackson, DITP is capturing the ear of many an unsuspecting listener, hungry for an authentic sound, and lures them in for more.
DEATH IN THE PARK came together shortly after the 2007 Warped Tour, where Jackson made a musical connection with crew from the alt-band Paramore, for whom he was opening. On tour, Jackson met guitarist Ronnie Gardner, then a sound technician, and, after the fall of Jackson s band, Hot Rod Circuit, he took the opportunity to focus on a new project. Originally conceived as a solo project, Jackson felt the surge of creativity in the moment, and joined with Gardner. Jackson recalled the name of a song from his favorite band as a youth, Archers of Loaf, and DEATH IN THE PARK was born.
DITP went immediately into Mission Sound studios in Brooklyn, NY to record their full-length self-titled album with Oliver Strauss. During the recording process, the band, now set with Sloan and Holmes joining Jackson and Gardner, was presented with a once in a lifetime opportunity: the chance to record a song with Paramore s lead vocalist, Hayley Williams. The resulting song Fallen , their first single, was inspired by Gardner and written by Jackson, the lyrics of which Jackson believes are, "some of the best lyrics I've ever written." On recording with a singer like Williams, Jackson remarked, "She knocked her stuff out like a pro." Jackson soon met with Tim O Heir (Hot Rod Circuit, All American Rejects, Say Anything) who introduced and recommended him to John Kaplan (Hollywood Undead, Nevershoutnever, Maroon 5) who mixed and mastered their new track. Discussing the production experience, Jackson said, I thought it was a chance to shine. They let us do everything we wanted to do. John is a really cool guy.
Although DEATH IN THE PARK may be difficult to classify into one genre, their unique sound and set-up has been compared to a mixture of Queens Club, Minus the Bear, Phoenix, and Panic at the Disco. Regarding their music, DEATH IN THE PARK hopes to create a real crime scene feel, very Dexter meets CSI, and kind of gory, actually. Drawing from their quite varied list of inspirations and own experiences, their second single "Pitifully Exposed," was written from an outsider s view of a tumultuous relationship, and pays homage to awkward relationships, uncomfortable breakups and the decisions we make that keep us there. DEATH IN THE PARK has already left their prints on the music scene, having already opened for Paramore, Underoath, Saosin, Alkaline Trio and Saves The Day. With the upcoming release of their album, the band is ready to take their spot on the punk-pop stage, and good or bad, it will be their own musical decisions that will make them so.

Death In the Park is the current project of front man Andy Jackson. Lead singer and main songwriter of Hot Rod Circuit, Andy is no stranger to the touring scene or the recording studio. Though Hot Rod Circuit went through a revolving door of labels, they are one of the best under rated bands out there. A staple of the under ground for years, Hot Rod Circuit had no end of talent or fantastic songs. Sadly the band called it quits. And then formed Death in the Park as his new project. They have been relatively slow getting out new material, but have been touring and getting their sound together. A GREAT band, with great stuff, download some of their free songs and check them out. This is real music, not mass produced garbage. "Baby baby baby," this is not. You can't write stuff this good. Please check them out, they are more then what the other review is lambasting them to be.

A decent album made by a guys with good intentions. Lead singer's voice needs some work and the back-up vocals need work as well. Guitar work and drums are moderately good. Lyrics are interesting. Nice guest vocals by Paramore's Hayley Williams. Her touch was a welcome presence in a rather bland album. Overall, album that barely hits the "Okay" mark. Five dollars is the ideal price. Wait for it to drop.
