Primed and ready to expand their success, Western Aerial has released their first full-length album. The self-titled cd includes 12 tracks of catchy, rough-and-tumble rock often describing dark themes and true events from a uniquely urban Northwestern perspective. The first single, Lipstick ‘n’ Cigarettes is indicative of the album, which uses lyrical imagery and well-crafted songwriting to make it instantly memorable.
Western Aerial’s music and ferocious live show has drawn recent comparisons to Foo Fighters and Jet, creating a diverse and loyal following of supporters who’ve been looking for a genuine rock ‘n’ roll band. Geoff Metts’ whiskey soaked vocals and swaggering guitar riffs pour over a thunderous rhythm supplied by Jimmy Richards on bass and bone crushing backbeats laid down by drummer Anthony Tripp. Western Aerial’s use of infectious melodies and AC/DC style hooks make it clear that it’s cool again to play a guitar solo.
Hell-bent on international stardom and all it's sordid trappings, Western Aerial have one thing in mind: Portland ... then the world.
