What you can expect from their latest EP entitled “Rumoura” is a batch of well-crafted songs with driving guitar lines and enough hooks to keep you humming for hours. The band is led by songwriter and vocalist Russ Rogers and is rounded out by Daniel Dyer (Guitar), Steve Velez (Bass) and Phil Tucciarone (Drums). If you are familiar with the Florida rock scene, I think ANWTLF is an inevitable product of that scene and those influences. Florida has always been a bit progressive in terms of its rock music scene but still feels the influence of its native sons the Van Zandt’s, Tom Petty and later transplants the Allmans. In addition to that southern rock lineage, Florida has been the incubator for such later post punk and industrial rockers like Rev 7, Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, Against Me! and Less Than Jake. The intersection of the musical angst of these latter bands with the sensibilities of these former local heroes makes a band like ANWTLF almost a certainty. They have taken the best from both worlds and combined it into a style of music all their own.
The band is working on a new EP helmed by Candlebox’s Peter Klett. The new record called “Monument” is expected at any time and with the roll this band is on, their fans should expect another fine record in the near future.
