“Take a show choir reject who was never cool enough for punk rock, throw him a rockabilly axe and have him cash in on all the poetry classes. Take an east coast jazz legend and tell him to lay off the diminished chording and step up the distortion. Take a civil war reenacting drum geek and sit him down behind a proper kit. What do these nerds come up with? Sixteen tracks of total badassery. Theatricality without pretense. Virtuosic musicianship somehow effortlessly stuffed into catchy rock anthems. From the vocal layer cake of “Overture” to the swarthy theatre-punk epic of “A Pirate’s Shanty” to the tender bedroom acoustic spaz-ballads of “Asskickers’ Union” and “the Scientist” to the incomparable bass solo finale of “the Devil and Davey Munch”, Countless Thousands attempt to capture the nature of enthusiasm in its many different faces and facets. Listening to this album is listening to three guys who genuinely love doing what they do. If you look for music that will make you glad that you care about music, then you’ve come to the right place. We really are just really excited to be here. And we know you are, too”.
Fine providers of fast paced and loveable Power-Punk, Countless Thousands brandish an intrepid enthusiasm for dynamically charged Rock – You won`t find a more entertaining sixteen track debut. Pushing minor influences aside, the Orange County trio whips up epic instrumentation track after track. Super human bass riffs and whirling percussion produce a solid melodic structure for the wonderfully named singer/guitarist `Danger Van Gorder` to execute their powerful and expansive songcraft. `We`re Just Really Excited To Be Here` will certainly be perched somewhere in our 2012 Top 20 releases, quality jarring guitar noise and New Wave ethics always allow free entry – I turned the stereo off hours ago but the blissful sound of Countless Thousands is still resonating around these four walls.
