Product Notes

You won't find one tattoo on any of the three members of Words Away. It's worth a mention- if you'd like to pick them from a crowd at a Jersey punk show, where disinterested youths not-so-subtly splay their body art to wow high-school aged girls out of their white cloth belts. With a split EP, a full-length album and a brand new EP to their credit, this trio - formed in North Jersey in June 2002 - has gained a reputation for being not so punk. Since their inception they've let their music - and little else - speak for itself. Characterized by vocalist/guitarist Mike Carroll's stark lyrics and the band's seemingly contradictory pop arrangements, Words Away has made a beautiful mess of what's thought to be punk. The result, most recently documented on the band's EP, SECRETS UNKEPT (Faction Zero Recordings), is something refreshing- a blend of meaty riffs, reflective meanderings, and well-placed aggression. The new disc also reveals a much darker side of the band (including drummer Dylan Gadino and bassist George Dossantos) that will please fans of rock, screamo and hardcore. It was recorded at Trax East Studios (Everytime I Die, Lifetime, Snapcase, God Forbid, etc.) and Clearcut Recording. Aquarian editor Al Muzer had this to say about Words Away: 'This loudn'fast NJ trio . careen between straight-on hardcore riffage, hard metal swagger and melody-based punk/pop that bring to mind a diverse collection of possible influences including Husker Du, Black Flag, Bad Religion, Art Alexis, Green Day, Nirvana, Tool .' Words Away's excellent songwriting and blistering live shows - the band has shared the stage with Teen Idols, Vision, Hidden in Plainview, The Break, The Escape Engine, The Oval Portait, Ensign, Badfish (Sublime Tribute) and more - has led to a few nice byproducts: Carroll has landed a sponsorship with Bogner Amplification while Dossantos - a pro BMX rider - is sponsored by Red Bull and a host of other companies. Release Date January 10th 2006.
