When a band releases new material you can normally report that there are gigs or a tour to support it.
Whilst there are some gigs scheduled, for River Jumpers this is the end of the line after six years together, the last two spent recording and working on this record. So as an epitaph to six years of blood, sweat, and tears does the album work?
A resounding yes it does. At a concise 10 tracks, it doesn’t outstay its welcome and whilst covering the usual themes of pop-punk and punk such as loyalty, friendships and surviving it does this with enough conviction to avoid the cliches which can litter the genre.
It’s available via the band’s Bandcamp. Give them a good send off by buying this.
