Washington D.C. based band, RK gets edgier in their sophomore effort, Don't Ask. Radio-friendly singles include the driving Pulled and emotionally-charged rock-ballad, Deserve. 'Anything is better than before.' is the phrase of the day on the moving out pop-infused anthem, Goodbye. Title Track, Don't Ask unearths psychic assaults with 'I just had a beautiful day?then I saw your face and it went away.' Wasted growls with passionate female-fronted vocals sitting on top of the rock pile. Sweet harmonies in Camille dress up a story about the search for a friend post-September 11th, supported by well-placed basslines. Check out the searing guitars and haunting harmonies of survival song, Happy Birthday to Me. Don't Ask solidifies RK as a band whose attitude defies it's weary manager namesake - rather, this band brings you freshly grown rock that doesn't rip you off.
